AFFALTERBACH, Germany — Of late, AMG has concentrated on artificially aspirated engines, namely supercharged V8s and turbocharged V12s. But that's all about to change when Mercedes-Benz's performance division unveils its new V8 at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

Dubbed the ML156, the new normally aspirated 6.3-liter V8 will make its Frankfurt debut in the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG. The engine delivers 510 hp at 6,800 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 5,200 rpm. AMG officials told Inside Line the large displacement allows 20-percent more torque than its chief competitors, while at the same time being lighter, more fuel-efficient and more drivable.

After it debuts in the ML63 AMG, the engine will go into the CLK63 AMG and E63 AMG, likely to be unveiled at next spring's Geneva show. In late 2006, the engine will make its way into the R63 AMG, and in early 2007, it will go into the C63 AMG and SLK63 AMG.

The ML156 engine won't be fitted into the AMG versions of the new S-Class — premiering at the Frankfurt show — the CL or SL until at least 2008. Those vehicles will feature more powerful versions of their current engines.

While this new engine is normally aspirated, AMG officials said the division will remain faithful to turbocharging where it makes sense.


Imagine 510 hp and 465 ft trq in C, SLK Or CLK! now thats gonna be awesome....

Ps. CL, SL, S, will get same version of V8 with twin turbo around 600hp!


Intresting move by AMG they put all that powerfull 510hp in lower class cars... and even more powerfull engines into higher class....intresting to see what will M power answer with !

What do you think.

I think they will, coz E now is in lower class, and CLS is more upper, so CLS wil get same more powerfull engine as SL or S!

Unless they dramatically change the traction of their cars ,more power will be only for bragging rights,the electronics will prevent any antics and this whole excercise will be pointless.
Its either 4wd or rear weight bias(like 612 or QP) that would allow to use all that additional hp.

This brings to mind a Pirelli ad a few years back: "Power is nothing without control..."
