Mercedes-Benz will be increasing the production capacity of its V12 bi-turbo engine due to considerably strong demand of this monster. To accomplish this, Mercedes-AMG will start assembling of this motor at Daimler’s factory in Mannheim from February 2016. AMG is going to add a separate assembly line at this location, dedicatedly for the V12 production line to meet the requirements. Reportedly, the reason of shifting production of large 6.0-litre engines to Mannheim is to increase the demand of 8-cylinder engines as well.

Mercedes-AMG will continue to follow the philosophy “One Man, One Engine”, which means that each engine is assembled by a single AMG master engine builder by hand. AMG will continue to develop the V12 in Affalterbach. As Mercedes is being adamant on the CO2 emissions, it is expected that the motor will be electrified to achieve reduced CO2 emissions. Electrifying the motor will not only reduce the emissions, but also give a performance boost to this monster and will run alone on electricity for a short distance.

Just so you know, 6.0-litre bi-turbo engine comes in a few range-topping models like the S65, SL65, and G65. Reportedly, there are some indications that the Mercedes-AMG is planning a “Halo Model” with this V12 hybrid machine. It seems Mercedes is all set to deliver its greatest performance machine thanks to the V12 hybrid motor. The new V12 engine will rival the models having a similar setup in McLaren, Ferrari and Porsche.
