Jonny Lieberman from Motor Trend, somewhat of an eccentric automotive journalist, sets off to the home of AMG in Affalterbach, Germany to assist with building a new twin-turbo V8 AMG engine. In the video he highlights how much engineering goes into the development of such an engine for the most powerful Mercedes-Benz vehicles on the street today.
In Jonny’s own quirky way, he goes through the story of how each engine is at the AMG factory is built along with a prided name badge to identify the single engine-builder who hand-crafted the heart of a new AMG vehicle.
