Mercedes AMG have unveiled their most powerful four cylinder engine, the Mercedes AMG 2.0 liter M 130 engine which comes with up to 416 horsepower, this is 40 horsepower more than their previous M 133 engine.
The engine will be available in two versions, one with 382 horsepower for the base model and one with 416 horsepower for the S model cars.
With this configuration, the AMG engineers have achieved a power delivery similar to that of a naturally aspirated engine for an even more emotional driving experience. The engine developers were also able to realize a dynamically increasing torque curve in the lower engine speed range, thereby improving agility. The increasing torque at higher rpm makes the engine more free revving. Moreover, the high maximum engine speed (up to 7200 rpm) confirms the M 139 as a sports engine.
“We already set the benchmark in the segment with the preceding engine. This fundamentally new four-cylinder presented us with the challenge of doing even better. And we succeeded with a number of sometimes revolutionary solutions. With the M 139, we have once again impressively demonstrated the engine expertise of Mercedes-AMG. Not only is the output per liter unrivalled for a turbocharged engine, the high level of efficiency also demonstrates that the internal combustion engine still has further potential,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
