0-60mph on paper is 4.9 but in real test its less than 4.5... with no wheel spin you will get 4.3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp5Ez3Hq5II

It could but it would be no way near as cool as it is with 5.4 V8. And the big V8 is not just impressive on spec sheet. It has way more grunt than 3.2 V6 and the sound is almost priceless. And V8 better suits the AMG hot-rod-ish character.

this car doesn't need a 5.4l v8, it could give this power from a 3.2l or 3.5l turbo v6.

WET HANDLING... high power cars with ultra wide tires and RWD are extrem difficult to drive fast in the wet... go to sportauto homepage they have all their latest supertest laps as video online (Northloop, Hockenheim and wet handling test) there you can see the different..

Wrong HP rating, should be 360hp and 510nm.
