The replacement for the 5.5 liter AMG V8 will be a 6.3 liter lump with 510HP (normally aspirated)! Per AMG:

"The new AMG V8 power unit with 375 kW/510 hp: The world’s most powerful naturally aspirated eight-cylinder engine - made by Mercedes-AMG

A completely new departure for Mercedes-AMG: the new AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine is the first in the world to combine a high-revving design with a large displacement."

Jezuz Christmas, just when I thought we had the Germans in a box - talk about your Farfenuggen. Wow!
Hmmm,.., maybe now Dieter Zeitsche can approve the V10 Viper motor (detuned) for the new Imperial - it wont outclass the new S-Class now. Whew!!

Ahem....They should state more accurately "The world's most powerful naturally aspirated factory production eight-cylinder engine.

Afterall, you can buy a crate motor w/ 720HP with a warranty.

I'm guessing the '07 Z06 will have 511 vs. 505 soon :D

How Bout 1.8 Mil on a new Ferrari??

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you have the $1.8 million price tag, and Ferrari 'allows' you to buy one, the FXX can be yours.

Super Enzo Lives! Ferrari FXX to offer mega-performance—at a mega-price

Despite earlier denials by Ferrari officials, the Super Enzo (AW, May 16) spotted turning laps at Ferrari’s Fiorano test track is more than a development mule and will be offered to customers.

Very privileged customers, that is. Ferrari has raised the stakes in the billionaire drivers club by planning to build only 20 or so FXX special editions (the Enzo name is gone) that will go to Maranello’s “most dedicated and passionate clients,” selected by an in-house committee. That means long-time buyers who lost track of their net worth years ago and who have at least a sliver of competitive driving experience and talent.




Those who are “allowed” to throw down roughly $1.8 million are in for the best Ferrari experience this side of the Scuderia’s Corse Clienti program. Where Corse Clienti offers sickeningly rich wannabes the opportunity to buy and drive used Formula One cars, the FXX scheme is similar: Ferrari says participants “will actually be joining Team Ferrari, and will have their driving experiences at the wheel of this new car monitored directly by the Prancing Horse’s technicians and specialists.”

A quite reasonable idea, considering the car’s performance: The fastest-ever Ferrari is powered by a 6.2-liter version of the Enzo’s 6.0-liter V12, with output rated at more than 800 hp (compared to Enzo’s 660) at 8,500 rpm. Ferrari says the FXX’s revised gearbox swaps cogs in less than 100 milliseconds, almost as fast as the F1 cars’ transmission.

Visible changes from the Enzo are punctuated by a radical aerodynamics package Ferrari says produces a staggering 40 percent more downforce than before. Adjustable spoilers mean drivers can tune their car’s aero configuration to suit specific circuits. That is important, as Ferrari will not homologate the FXX for road use—which also means there will not be a GT racing version. Other key performance features include custom 19-inch Bridgestone racing slicks and composite ceramic Brembo brakes.




With performance set to be other-worldly, the entire customer experience should measure up. The FXX package includes participation in a series of track events organized by Ferrari on various international circuits over the next two years. An official team of technicians will be on hand at these sessions to provide any assistance and support required by the “Client Test Driver.”


Owners will also be able to take their cars out on the track independently during private sessions, and will have the option of storing their car at the factory. Ferrari will transport those vehicles to the various European circuits for the scheduled events. To ensure drivers are equipped to handle such power, delivery of each FXX will also include a driving course administered at Fiorano by professional drivers. Owners can look forward to individually tailored seats and unique pedal setups before they receive training dedicated to test driving methodologies.

Ferrari insists the training is necessary, as “the wealth of data and experience gathered in the course of this very special program will be exceptionally important. In fact, the feedback from these highly skilled, non-professional client test drivers will be compared and supplemented with suggestions from Michael Schumacher, Rubens Barrichello and Ferrari’s professional in-house test drivers.”




To help collect data, the FXX features a sophisticated telemetry system that monitors 39 different vehicle dynamics parameters in real time. The system is also able to record other data as demanded by specific circumstances. Ferrari says the information gathered will be analyzed by technicians and discussed with the individual drivers to ensure that the car is kept constantly updated.Ferrari says it will deliver the first cars by the end of the year.

There'll be oill for another 100 years at least.

We'll just have to fight a lot more wars as the oil that's left are in nasty, terrorist-filled countries.

Obscene horsepower, but so is the compensation senior executives are getting paid these days.
