Mercedes Benz and its AMG division has officially announced a new type of V8 engine for their high performance models, and the new S63 AMG super saloon is the first to get it.

This 5.5 liter twin-turbo direct-injection V8 comes in two modes. First there’s the standard format in which you get 544 hp and 800 nm of torque, enough for doing 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (limited).
