The beast is powered by the new AMG 5.5 liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 537PS (395 kW) and 800Nm (590 lb-ft). However, it can be boosted to whopping 564PS (415 kW) and 900Nm (664 lb-ft) with the AMG Performance package.

The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, but with the AMG Performance package is 300 km/h.
