    Mercedes passes off all V12 engine development to AMG

    AMG will be solely responsible for Mercedes V12 development for all future models. This does not mean the V12 will disappear from the Mercedes portfolio just that AMG will be hand building the low volume motors. AMG already builds the M275, M279, and Pagani V12's for example. 600 models will not be gone from the lineup but instead will feature AMG motors without the AMG badge.

    The next generation S600 will feature an AMG built M279 V12 (same as in the new R231 SL65 AMG) that likely will just be slightly detuned through software. Makes us wonder though if the S65 AMG (which we assume we will see) will be significantly different or just feature different software. We will know soon enough.

    While BMW is putting M badges where they don't belong, Mercedes is secretly stuffing regular cars with AMG motors hahaha

    Makes sense considering the low volume of V12's produced. Cool to see MB doing this. They really seem to be on their game as of late and are making some seriously bad ass cars.

    way"cooler" in my opinion.
    Having a "normal" car and beeing able to say , "hey the engine is from AMG" is way cooler then having an fully m badged car knowing it has nothing to do with the M-company.

    Like the 850CSi just "normal" but real M engine and still a cool car.
