German term or phrase: Motorlager
In the following text:

"Das Bild zeigt die dynamischen AMG Motorlager in Nahaufnahme."

which is an explanation to the foto in the following website:

There is also another section with the following:

"Dazu ergänzt das AMG Hinterachs-Sperrdifferenzial, das beim S-Modell elektronisch geregelt wird, den Allradantrieb perfekt und sorgt für eine exzellente Kurvenperformance.
 Je nach Fahrsituation unterstützen die dynamischen AMG Motorlager. Sie sind bei hoher Querbeschleunigung hart für direkteres Einlenken. Bei Geradeausfahrt sind sie weich und sorgen so für maximalen Komfort."

neutral  Richard Stephen: Automotive engineers use the term "engine" to describe the prime mover in automobiles. The term "motor" is used by amateurs.

  -> Of course, you are right. As the text addresses to the general public, motor mount is a valid option.

neutral  Dhananjay Rau: I thnk "motor" is used more in american English. "Engine" is british.

agree  Lancashireman: with Note added at 14 minutes - it's the official US website and the same image.

  -> Thank you

agree  jccantrell: My Daimler glossary says, "engine mount or engine support." Motor mounts is what the Fonz would say at the drive-in, but it means the same thing.

The average cost for an engine mount replacement is between $248 and $532.

‘Hydraulic’ and ‘Switchable’ engine mounts are prime examples of the kind of high technology component that garages have sourced directly from dealerships for years. From the outside, engine mounts can look the same, but appearances are deceptive. Inside, it's a very different story. Let us take a closer look at the ‘Switchable’ engine mount (Diagram 1).

Dynamic engine mounts
On the racetrack in particular, the unforgiving forces of physics should certainly not be underestimated. But they can be exploited. Not least in the interests of dynamic performance. This is what we do with dynamic engine mounts.
This electronically controlled system minimises the perceptible oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, especially the engine, and combines the benefits of a hard or soft engine mounting arrangement.
A hard engine mounting delivers optimum dynamic performance because it offers the highest degree of handling precision possible. Soft engine mounts, on the other hand, minimise oscillations and vibrations. While comfort is improved on uneven road surfaces, this comes at the expense of dynamic performance.
