Under the hood, it will have a 6.2-liter V8 engine borrowed from SLS AMG GT3 which would produce around 600bhp. The power is channeled through a six-speed sequential transmission mounted on the rear axle. Mercedes did not rely on the new 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 which powers its road-legal GTS as the “high-revving naturally aspirated engine” include “user-friendly technology, excellent reliability, long maintenance intervals and … low running costs”
