Holy Powerful Batman

Well I'm sure we all know of the new 6.3L V8 from AMG with 503HP and 465 lb-ft torque and that is is naturally aspired. Well What I just read in the December issue of Automobile Magazine in the M6 vs. CLS 55 AMG article is what AMG plans to do with this engine.

1. This engine will go in to the ML, CLK, E, and R class next year. No suprise, especially on the ML, but the E and CLK will be fun as hell.

2. What they plan to do with this engine as far as turbocharging goes. Two turobocharged versions will be made, one with 563HP and 664 lb-ft torque (dangerously close to 666 isn't it [8D] ) and another with 697HP and 886 lb-ft torque. The only thing changed there is an increase to 6.8L from 6.3L, a legendary displacement for AMG dating back to the awesome sedan-racing origins.

Repeat: 6.8L V8 AMG 697HP, 886 lb-ft torque.

Yikes!

Where can you even open up a vehicle with 900 pounds of torque?
