According to an Autocar
source, Arnd Meyer, the head engineer responsible for chassis engineering of all recent AMG models, including the SLS AMG Black Series, has left Mercedes and joined BMW M.
The source says that Meyer will eventually head BMW M's chassis, powertrain and electronics development, although an AMG spokesperson has suggested that a contractual agreement (presumably, a non-compete clause in his employment contract) may prevent him from doing so for some period of time.
By the way, Meyer may have engineered for AMG recently, but in an interview he once gave, he admits that he learned his chops working at BMW's M division and also racing BMWs. So, the man has some blue and white running through his veins from early on.
This news comes on the heels of this recent report
that BMW M may be looking into offering models that compete with AMG Black Series models, in terms of exclusivity. Could BMW M's pickup of Meyer be related? We shall see...
