Does anyone know why or how the S55 has 355 horespower, versus the E55 which has 349bhp. Where'd they get the additional 6?

The extra horsepower comes from the longer exhaust tract in the S-Class which is tweaked to produce the extra horsepower.

Re: Re: S55 - 355bhp?

....as well from the differently shaped<br> intake system. See for example differences<br> between M112-powered cars, same engine is<br> rated 218HP in the C-class and 224HP when<br> installed into CLK. Only thing that really<br> differs is air supply duct and filtering.
