Mercedes is also expected to announce a special AMG Performance Package that will up the output considerably to an astonishing 571-hp and 664 ft-lbs of torque.

Other goodies set to be included in the package are a more aggressive front end, larger wheels, a stiffer suspension and upgraded brakes. Inside, there's certain to be a sport steering wheel and plenty of carbon fiber highlights.
