HWA ..sorry typo..my bad.
sold out to Daimler but doing their own thing really...on behalf of daimler of course..
the Ilmor 2175a 3.5 l engine was 122kilos race ready ,696hp
the Mercedes M291 last development stage was 680HP flat-12 169 kg with starter, alt, exh, no clutch
I remember the endless stories in german motorsport papers about how ilmor and Daimler were weighing in different ways and the m291 was not really as heavy as it
indeed AMG is the company that is developing cars and engines for daimler ,the most prominent one the SLS.
1998 aufrecht sold out to daimler and spun off HWA.
HWA is motorsports mainly as far as I knowdeveloping DTM engines ,F3 engines ,building and developing all DTM activities cars etc also some roadcar development. I´m unclear how much it is in daimler ownership ,but aufrecht remains major stakeholder as far as I know.210 employees.http://www.hwaag.com/start.htmlhttp://www.mercedes-amg.com/#/about-amg
