It develops 457 hp (451 bhp) and 600 Nm (443 lb ft) of torque from a 6.2-liter, normally-aspirated V8 that in various stages of tune can develop up to 631 hp (622 bhp) and 650 Nm (479 lb ft) of torque. In our point of view, there is no other stock production V8 engine on the planet that sounds better than the M156/M159.
In the right corner we have the facelifted Mercedes-Benz E 500 W212. Powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V8, it develops 408 (402 bhp) and coincidentally the same amount of torque as normally-aspirated C 63 AMG – 600 Nm (443 lb ft).
From what we understand, there is also a drag race staged between the two models, but until then we're just going to settle for the soundtrack battle for now.
