I like the tuned C32 and C32 wagon at 426HP.

"Mercedes Enthusiast Magazine" did an article on the C32 wagon and how it out accellerated a Porsche Carrerra. HP wise I believe it's more than the Porsche Turbo . . .

558 hp, that has just got to be sum acceleration! Might even qualify as theraputic?

Best thing of all, I bet this car will LOOK and FEEL new with 150k miles on the odometer, try and pull that one off BMW.

What about a Biturbo V12 600?

That's what I hear MB are putting in the facelifted CL coupe. 500bhp and 0-60in 4.?. Also hear they've upped the 55 engine to 500bhp as well. And Brabus can make that 550 if you have the funds.

Apparently KLEEMANN is replacing the AMG Superchargers on SL55AMGs with their own setup, netting near 600HP. And I can say firsthand that KLEEMANN builds incredible stuff...the CLK55Kompressor I drove had indescribable power (560+HP in a car at least 500 lbs. lighter...)
