    • BenzBoost renders the 2012 ML63 AMG with M157 twin turbo V8

      Here is our take on the new ML63 AMG. We know it is coming as we have posted reports of it testing. No surprises really as the new ML63 AMG will have the M157 twin turbo direct injected V8 from the E63 AMG. This means 518 horsepower in standard trim 550 horsepower with the optional performance package. Curb weight should be just under 5000 pounds. Expect a possible official reveal at the Frankfurt Auto Show later this year.

        Yes.

        will 63 cars still carry the 6.3 badge on side grills?

        Nope, I think that is a small mistake by Wild-Speed as they are using V8-Biturbo now:

        Hmm just cant make up my mind about this one, i think the wheel arches need to be more aggressive a'la the current model, particularly at the rear

        I agree. However..there are no differences within the bodylines of the basic model and the spypics of the AMG version...
