To clarify further, the M139L is still built in Affalterbach, Germany before it is installed into the vehicle at MBM's plant in Pekan. 

The new heart of the AMG C43 - internally named M139L (L for Longitudinal) - is also the world's first series-production engine to feature an electric exhaust gas turbocharger that promises almost instant response and power delivery.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
