Hi, Group,

I was reading in Wheelbase Communications, an Auto-Section supplement to my Saturday newspaper that MB is proposing using 4-cylinder gasoline engines in the new S-Class, with likely turbo or supercharging assists, hybrid additions, etc.

Comments, opinions, notes?

(Tell me that MB is not seriously considering this???)

A 4-cylinder engine pushing a 2.5 ton MB from its rear-wheels?

God, this CAN'T be TRUE????

Rumor?

Knowing MB, they would probably charge a new buyer a $4,000 surcharge for the 'special' 4-cylinder S600...an "S6004C"!

You guys are killing me!

How about an 4-cylinder S-Class 2-door Hatchback?

Zero-to-sixty in 3 days....with a ZF 12-speed transmission...maintenance-free, of course....
