AMG's New 4.0 Turbocharged V8 Motor

Rumor has it that AMG is working on replacing the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter V8 in the C63 AMG to a 4.0 liter turbocharged V8. Sounds like they will be boring out the motor that will premiere in the CLA45 to get a larger displacement. The best news is that the horsepower will be about the same (450hp vs. 451hp currently). It is also estimated that this engine would be able to generate a maximum of 600hp. So, hopefully the AMG development package for model year 2014 will boast a larger horsepower figure than model year 2013. All in all, the trend in the automotive industry will be smaller displacement motors. You can thank the CAFE standards for that.
