Unorthodox, untamed, ultimate. He has emerged from uncompromising engineering paired with unprecedented performance – especially on the race track.
Systematic lightweight design meets far-reaching technical modifications, such as the completely revised #V8#biturbo with a flat crankshaft and the extreme optimisation of the aerodynamics.
The twin rear wing in conjunction with other sophisticated aero measures guarantees optimum output and perfect vehicle balance – in every situation.
The most powerful AMG V8 series engine of all time, even its key data take the breath away: 537 kW (730 hp) and 800 Nm maximum torque. This phenomenal output was achieved with several far-reaching modifications. On the one hand with a modified crankshaft which now has all the crank pins on one level. This is known as a Flatplane V8.
This flat crankshaft effects a modified firing order and facilitates a better turn behaviour and an even more direct response. The two new exhaust gas turbochargers make a major contribution to the extreme engine power.
They have anti-friction-bearing-mounted turbines and a twinscroll exhaust gas turbocharger design. The aim of both measures was also to enable an even more immediate reaction from the engine to acceleration commands. The scope of the charge air cooling was increased in order to ensure the tremendous output even at continually high load.
