AMG GT engine will proliferate across Mercedes linep

AMG boss Tobias Moers has confirmed that his firm's new 4.0-litre V8 engine will in time replace all existing V8 powertrains, including those used by non-AMG products. “The engine will replace our 5.5-litre engine,” said Moers.

Mercedes-Benz will build its own version of the engine on a standard production line. All engines destined for AMG cars will still be built on the ‘one man, one engine’ principle at Affalterbach.

All true AMG cars will also lose Mercedes-Benz badging and be Mercedes-AMG branded like the new GT and C63.

He also said the company is not working on any Black Series product, but denied the sub-brand had been put on indefinite hold. “We have so much incredible stuff coming through the normal product lines, we can’t think about anything else right now,” he said.

So how many Mercedes vehicles currently use a V8 engine? What are the vehicles that are going to end up getting the new 4.0-litre V8 engine?
