Hi Alex, and very well spotted.

I had a chance to ask someone from AMG powertrain this last week and it's because the '43' engine isn't built at Affalterbach by AMG to its 'one man, one engine' philosophy. It was developed by AMG, but the production numbers are too high for it to be manufactured in that way.
