Not to be done outdone by BMW's monstrous 500HP V10, It appears Mercedes is readying a normally aspirated 6.3L V8 that will put out an incredible 510HP and 465lb ft of torque in the ML63 it will debut on. That in itself is nothing particular special, HOWEVER, it appears this engine will not only be going into the high end models like the E Class and CLK, but youll be able to get this firebreathing powerplant in the SLK AND C Class as well!

A 450+ hp C Class sized car!? That will be nothing short of incredible...

Ah, not spoil the fun, but Chevy already gets 505 h.p./470 ft lbs of torque from a smaller 6.0 that's not even ohc. It too is butter smooth and has a higher specific output than the MB "monster".

Im a little bit lost... Which engine is this? As far as I know the LS6 is 400hp and the LS7 is 505 or so in the Z06, but its a 7.0L displacement is not?

I drove the CLS55 AMG and almost convinced myself and my wife to get rid of the S600 and buy one... now the CLS63 AMG might actually do the trick!! :thumbsup:
Dont forget to keep me in mind if you ever sell the S600!! :D

Perhaps this is also MB's way of showing a little muscle to the latest entrant to the performance-luxury competition, Cadillac.
This could be. When the competition starts knocking on your door, up the ante! ;)
