Yep they either sped up the GPS speedo on the video or it had more power than claimed because not ...

Ok well it shares much the same bodywork as the 300+ and supposedly much the same hp but it's 6 ...

We all should by now know that Mercedes do not release PEAK hp figures for their performance turbo engines. I've ...
