This is a direct google translate so excuse the poor translation. Its from a site called MB Passion.

In the site further down they're saying the new AMG will be a naturally aspirated. This obviously isn't confirmed by AMG though.

From the MB representatives at the SLKWorld retreat: AMG version will be naturally aspirated direct-injection V-8 engine, no DCT.

Wow... 422 HP for the AMG and 306HP for 350... sounds decent to me.

the google translation is off slightly on converting PS to HP, as it is not exactly 1 to 1.

For example: 422 PS equals 416 HP (and this is very close to MBUSA telling us the R172 AMG will have 415 hp)

306 PS equals 302 HP.

Also, 370 NM of torque on the R172 SLK 350 converts to 273 ft-lbs of torque. For reference I believe the R171 SLK350 was 350 NM (pre-face lift) and 360 NM (post face lift) which converts to 258 and 265 ft-lbs respectively. (SLK350 owners please double check the torque specs).

In any case the R172 350 should be a little "torquier" and I believe MBUSA told us more torque will be available at low rpm in the R172 350 vs the R171 350.

Will be interesting to see how many will order the new Slk with a Diesel engine horsepower and nm sounds good and get great mpg Also the price for the base modells are very atractive.
