Fire brigade called as Mercedes V6 turbo goes up in flames
28 November, 2013
A fire this week was not the first incident at Brixworth, as Mercedes develops its turbo V6 engine for 2014.
Auto Motor und Sport reports that the fire brigade was called to the German manufacturer’s Northamptonshire headquarters on Monday evening after an Formula 1 engine caught fire on a test bench.
Mercedes said there was no significant damage, and that the fire department was only summoned as a precaution.
But AM&S correspondent Michael Schmidt said that the development of the Mercedes turbo motor has been troublesome, with other incidents having also occurred recently. (GMM)
