I thought that amg used bigger motors then a in line 6. They would have made it in to the 560 or the 500 like yours. Me things they may be a clone.

I think they just did some headwork. That intake is different from mine, but there were variations. If I ever have my engine apart there is going to be some mild work done on the head if I can find a reputable shop who knows the m110 like the back of their hand.

Too bad those engine parts are probably $$$$, you would probably need to get custom replacement parts to boot.

You could buy a 280 I-6 AMG engine - it was just all headwork though. But they pushed the 185hp euro motor to 210hp. As always, the question with this car is "Is it real, or is it clone?"
