The article in the new issue of Automobile magazine about the next gen AMG engines is so exagerated. A 500hp Supercharged V8 for the next gen AMG E and S classes! Not.<br>More likely around 400hp. We all know the SLR will get a 555hp supercharged engine and be over $300k. But then a rumored 700 hp 6.0 V10 with "bagfuls of Formula 1 racing technology" for the SLR. Gee, I wonder how much this special SLR will cost, maybe $500k+. <br>I can see it now, in the next issue of Automobile magazine Georg Kacher will write, BMW M Power to go on steroids.<br>Next gen E56 M3 and M Rdstr/Cpe to get 450hp twin turbo <br>I-6. Next gen M5 and X5M to get 600hp turbo V8. Z8 type M goes ballistic with 900hp twin turbo V12!!!!!!!!!<br>Oh I forgot about the top secret Bmw R9 that will destroy all challengers with a 1400hp quad turbo W16. Boy I can't wait. <br> <br>

Why does this seem strange that a supercharged 5 liter V8 might be in the range of 500hp? The supercharged 6 in the C320 that will compete with the M3 is expected to be around 350hp, and that is just 3.2 liters. The 5 liter engine should produce at least in the mid 400s hp. Its purpose is to replace the 5.5 liter engine in the current E55, and be more powerful than the existing M5. I would guess that it would be in the range of 450 - 500 hp.
