AMG 5.5L V8 DOHC BITURBO Engine …future AMG cars
Hand-assembled metallic Performance parts shall bring power to future AMG cars.
Verily, it is a 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V8, superseding the none-too-shabby
6.3-liter naturally aspirated eight that doth make 518 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque.
The new block on the aluminium block kicks out 536 hp and 590 lb-ft,
while reducing fuel consumption by up to 25 percent.
This is achieved with the help of direct gasoline injection.
M157 this engine will be coupled to a 7G-TRONIC AMG SPEED SHIFT PLUS transmission
that offers automatic and driver-operated gearshifts.
There’s also a Performance Package available to bulge output to 563 hp and 664 lb-ft.
