Cool, now the new V6 Engine is a DOHC with 268HP. So does anybody know are they gonna update the V8 into DOHC?

not that i know of. however, the new s-class will offer a 5.5 (i.e., s550) in place of the current 5.0 in the new 2007 due out in mid 2006. it is entirely reasonable that benzo would then drop that 5.5 engine into the current e500 and call it an e550 ,,, and accomplish their mid-run model refresh of the current e500 at the same time. just speculating on the second half of this post.

by the way, i drove a new 2006 e350 for a few days last week and whilst it is acceptably quick off the line ,,, e500 owners take heart ,,, it does NOT compare AT ALL to our e500s! cheers.
