Mercedes AMG Chassis Head Engineer Moves to BMW M
We are talking about Arnd Meyer, the man who supervised the chassis development for the latest AMG vehicles, such as the SLS AMG Black Series and E63 AMG.
Meyer, who is also responsible for the chassis of the upcoming SLS Electric Drive, the most powerful road car ever produced by AMG, left the company for BMW M’s division, where he will lead the chassis, powertrain, electrics and electronics offensive, as autocar writes. At the moment, it is unclear when Meyer will be able to start turning the wheels at BMW M.
The move comes after Fritz Eichler, who used to lead AMG’s powertrain development, moved to Volkswagen in order to sit at the top of the petrol engine development department.
AMG has raised to new heights over the last few years, with the division taking its activities further and further and receiving more attention from the public, so it's interesting to see how it copes with the aforementioned situation.
