Bearing the internal designation M 156, the AMG 6.3L V8 engine with its displacement of 6208cc produces between 457hp and 525hp, depending on its application, develops up to 460 lb-ft of torque and is found in various AMG models, including the C 63 AMG, the E 63 AMG and the SL 63 AMG.

The basis for the power delivery is the consistent technology transfer from motorsport, which has been an inseparable part of the company philosophy at Mercedes-AMG for over four decades.

The potential of the award-winning AMG V8 is reflected in its evolution: the M 159 engine in the SLS AMG is based on the M 156, where it develops 571hp and delivers maximum torque of 480 lb-ft.

The "International Engine of the Year Awards" rank among the most prestigious honors in the automotive sector and have been organized by specialist UK publisher, UKIP Media & Events, since 1999.

An independent jury of 65 renowned motoring journalists from 32 countries chooses the best engines of the year.
