Hi..does anyone know where I can see a photo of the amg package? I can't seem to find any except for the one silver photo mercedes released. Anyone know of any photos of the back? Also my car was due to be built on april 10th and there is a delay...does anyone know what the delay is about?

Thanks,
Lindsay

Looks like ML 350 badging to me

with w163 looking ML55 rims complete with the ///AMG engraving but skinny tires and a basic looking exterior. If this is the ML65 ///AMG MB won't find too many takers who'll pay up for it even with the awesome engine.

its the ML63 not ML65, and yes this is what you call the AMG Sport package available on the ML350 (this is a ML350 with the AMG sport package), this is not a AMG, example you can buy a SL500 with the AMG sport package but its still a SL500 just with a sporty look

I agree, the skinny tires make the car look so ordinary thats what I love about my ML430 the tires are thick, it makes it look so much more agressive

nononono

the 2007* keyword 2007 ML63 will be the AMG, the 2006 ML350 and ML500 <-- maybe will have an optional AMG sport package, the AMG sport package is just apperance and a optional package that you can buy, its like going out and buying a civic and then buying side skirts, rims and a new front bumper, its just a package that you can dress up your 2006 ML with, the Mercedes ML63 AMG will be here (made by AMG with the engine and suspension and badging and everything else you can think of in an AMG) in 2007

Thanks for the clarity

I got it now. 476 bhp will require wider tires and perhaps a different suspension! [:)]


I'll have to wait for Kleemann to develop a kompressor so it will have 600+ bhp. [:D][:D][8D]

RE: Thanks for the clarity

AMG will have a 618hp edition of this new 6.3 litre engine as well, but no info as of today if this will end up in the new ML.

But a Kleemann kompressorkit will have much more than 600hp, probably more than 700 hp (if the transmission and drivetrain can handle it).

Your dealer/sales agent is not very good.
That picture is in the ML brochure.

I can see only one reason to more then double the bhp of a 2006 ML350

and drop it in an ML is to compete with BMW and Porsche. It would be an ultra high exclusive, hence costly, low production flagship vehicle and I could not imagine the upgrades that would have to take place [suspension, brakes, et al.] to make it driveable and not produce excessive warranty expenses for MB --not to mention rich sons who are also bad drivers that will crash the thing. The current 604 bhp bi-turbo V-12 residing in MB "65" ///AMG model "cars" is like the ultimate. Going beyond that is ridiculous (yet awesome to me) in a production road vehicle but I guess we're heading in that direction! Can anyone say "well my insurance premiums are...".

Question, do you guys think the new W164 AMG 19 inch rims would fit on a 04 W163? I would assume it should....
