An Enlightening Overview of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Engine￼
Amazingly Marvelous Gadget--AMG
AMG doesn't actually stand for "amazingly marvelous gadget," but it could. In reality, it's an engine design with multiple variations that are admired by many European import enthusiasts. The experienced technicians at Import Auto Repairs, with locations in Alpharetta and Milton, Georgia, can help you with all your Mercedes-Benz repair needs as well as the recommended service protocols. We have the tools, equipment, and training to perform all the preventive maintenance and repairs that you would receive at a dealership without the extra time, money, and energy of returning there.
Specifics of the AMG
Rather than a single entity, the AMG is actually a line of engines that includes various options that might power your new Mercedes-Benz. All of them are known for exceptional operating performance, but some actually outperform (in terms of horsepower and torque) the power plants under the hood of some popular "ultimate" sports cars. AMG selections include the 2.0L inline (turbocharged, fuel-efficient, 375 hp), 3.0L V6 Biturbo (large turbochargers, 362 hp), 4.0L dry-sump V8 Biturbo (sports car engine, engine V with turbos inside), 4.0L V8 Biturbo (low emissions, compact, responsive, 469 hp or 550 hp when placed in the GT Roadster), 5.5L V8 Biturbo (combination package for turbocharging and direct injection, 563 hp), and 6.0L V12 Biturbo (liquid to air intercooler, 621 hp). The Mercedes-Benz automaker owns the AMG engine building operation.
A Single Person Matters
An interesting observation regarding AMG engines is that the company mirrors what we believe at Import Auto Repairs. Since our beginnings in 1993, we've been committed to the belief that every customer matters. With a combined total of more than 100 years of mechanical experience, each staff member works to know you and your car. Likewise, the relatively small group of engine builders at AMG operate on the "one man, one engine" principle. Most AMG engines are assembled one at a time. Having trained for a minimum of 3 years and nine months, the engine builder assembles more than 600 parts over a span of 4-5 hours. From the engine assembly area to our shop to your driveway, every person matters.
