RE: 675hp stock - the new AMGs

if the previous link doesn't work for you.

--article--

At the other end of the scale from the A-Class, Merc is building a luxury saloon with supercar performance. As the power struggle between AMG and the German maker's other affiliated tuner Brabus intensifies, the former is working on a new flagship, the S69 AMG.

Producing in excess of 675bhp, the model is set to be the wildest S-Class yet, with a larger-capacity version of the 6.0-litre bi-turbo V12 from the S65. With torque expected to be in excess of 1,000Nm (737.46 lb/ft), finding a reliable transmission to handle it will have been difficult - but our sources say engineers have managed to do so. In preparation for the introduction of the newcomer, Mercedes has registered the S69 trademark, along with SL69 and CL69. That means we've got a whole range of flagships to look forward to.

Who cares? I'd rather have a car that was trouble free, torque happy, and was frugal with fuel cost.

Where the heck are you going to go with that much muscle. If I see one of those on the street, I will just laugh at the loser who thought he needed something like that.

Last time I checked, there were still Staties and speed limits posted on the roadsides.

Chances are, they are pushing on these engines too much. They are NOT going to last the long haul.

RE: 675hp stock - the new AMGs

whoopdy do, HP is so inflated, especially when they limit it to 155 most times

how fast are u gonna drive anyways, i think the most important times are your 70-90 80-100 numbers and such.

the 500 engine is prob best deal, very quick fast enuf, holla

Its not just top speed, sometimes its how fast you get there. If you guys only need to go 55 then why don't you sell your cars and get a 190D or something(no offense to 190D owners...but they are slow)

Torque is the force that gets you there. HP is just topspeed(work done over amount of time).

RE: 675hp stock - the new AMGs

You guys are missing the point, the only reason for this is so AMG can say they have the best car. It would be cool if they would also make an E69, but thats unlikely. The only other concievable reason is because there are too many people with S600's, and people still want to be able to say "mines bigger than yours."
