But could this be part of the normal product cycle or instead a move away from V-12s at AMG?
Tobias Moers, we’re likely looking at the firm’s first steps to phase out the big mills.
“The 12-cylinder engine will be phased out at AMG”
“Eventually, the 12-cylinder engine will be phased out at AMG,” Moers said in an interview published Friday.
The good news is that in typical AMG fashion, Moers is planning something even wilder to replace its V-12 models. “At the top of our lineup, we will follow another path,” he said, without going into further detail.
Its not confirmed yet that a recent trademark filing discovery hints at a new 73 seriesto replace the V-12-powered 65 series at AMG. And the choice of powertrain for the 73 series is expected to be a V-8-based hybrid setup potentially delivering 805 hp. It’s the setup AMG previewed in its GT sedan concept at the 2017 Geneva auto show.
