My understanding was that the new engine wouldnt come in until the 2003 model year...<br>
<br>
I could be wrong though.<br>

They are however coming out with an S63 AMG, though its doubtful it will ever reach the US.

Yes, it will have the 5.5 liter kompressor engine.

Only that it will have 500 hp. The broader exhaust pipes of the S-Class and the SL allow the engine to develop 500 hp in the 2003 setup. Only the E55 will be limited to 476 horsepowers. One recommendation: Also look at the 2003 S600 with the 500 hp Maybach engine.

the new
S55
S600
CL55
CL600

will all have 496 BHP (US version, and 500BHP European version). I don't think it will be limited or anything.
They will all go from 0-60 in less then 5 sec.
The E55 will get 475 and no more.
why ?
because lighter and more aerodynamical then the SL it would out-perform it.
