Default 2008 CLK63 AMG 500bhp

Check out the new Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series developing 500 bhp and 470 ft lbs of torque from a naturally aspirated AMG engine. An increase of 25 horses from the standard version. That's some German muscle coming from a 6.3L V8 redlining at 8400 rpm.
They have also designed it so that it looks exactly like the Official Formula 1 Safety Car.
Now that's one monster of a car right there. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels with Mercedes' SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC. 0-60 mph in 4.1 secs, top speed limited to 300 kph.

it looks kick *** but for the price of a Fully loaded 911 Turbo or something, makes you wonder what to do..anyhow it would be just awesome to own, considering all the track specific tunes they would come with..

top notch..

i wonder whats possible with a forced induction version of that engine. 1000 hp? Not quite out of reach considering people wrangle 300 horsepower from a stock hayabusa engine.

actually, i think AMG is considering a turbocharged version of this engine. possibly for the SL, CL and S Klasse variants.

Nice car. Looks good too. Can't wait for a new face on it, though.

Ananth, I've seen 500+ hp Busa turbos. 300 is child's play. When are you getting yours?

in the near future you will see some more versions of that new 6.2 liters V8 engine AMG with supercharger or turbochargers between 570 hp to 707 hp.In order to replace the 6.0 liters V12 used on the 65 AMG models

I agree. Imagine how much smoke you could have created by dropping the clutch in 1st gear. muhahahahahaaaa
It'll probably rip the clutch apart.
