Well, this explains quite a bit! On the dynojet dyno today, in 72 degree weather, my bone-stock S600 made:

481 RWHP @ 5300 RPM
601 RWTQ @ 3500 RPM

The dyno pull started at 3200 RPM since it's an auto and there's no way to keep it from downshifting. Then, the traction control computer called an end to the fun right at 5300 RPM; final power might have been slightly higher if it hadn't, since the redline is 5950.

This goes a long way toward explaining how a "493 HP" 4600 lb car can run 115 MPH in the 1/4...
