I'm no stranger to Mercedes-AMG's "One Man, One Engine" assembly plant, where every AMG engine is hand-assembled by a single individual. But upon entering a closed-off area on a higher floor, I would've thought that I'd walked through a portal into an alternate dimension.

It's quiet. It's clean. The usual morass of power cables and tools and parts bins are notably absent. Yet, this Bizarro World isn't an anomaly -- instead, this little corner of the facility in Affalterbach is dedicated to a brand spankin' new method for assembling AMG's bonkers M139 four-cylinder engine. The automaker wanted a new production method for its new four-pot, and boy howdy, it cooked up a doozy. Best of all, we're bound to see more of it going forward.
