New MB Supercar!

There's a possibility that MB will make this supercar with the 6.3 liter engine, I don't see why not, they already have the engine made, the SLR isn't selling, it isn't the exotic MB thought it would be. SLK is getting restyled for 2008, wonder what that's going to look like?



Here’s the second “status update” article done by AutoWeek, this time on Mercedes. With its reputation for quality in tatters and the rising threat of BMW, Lexus, and Audi, Mercedes needs to dip a toe in every niche possible.

Below is the edited version of the story. You can read the whole story, along with updates on Mercedes-owned Smart and Maybach here.

P8 (pictured above as a rendering by Auto-Motor-Und-Sport): It is unclear whether this high-performance, two-passenger coupe will be produced, but there is word that the new Mercedes management has put it back on the drawing board. The car would be manufactured by partner McLaren, which makes the SLR. It would be powered by the new AMG-engineered, 510-hp, 6.3-liter V-8. It could appear as early as 2008.

C class: The sedan will be redesigned in 2007. Last year Mercedes dropped the four-cylinder engine from the C class. It also dropped the slow-selling coupe and station wagon. Those two models are not expected to return to North America, but Mercedes is likely to add a luxury sedan and a sporty sedan.

CLK coupe/convertible: The redesigned coupe and convertible are based on the new C class and are scheduled to arrive in 2008. A longer car is expected.

SLK: The two-passenger roadster will be restyled in 2008.
