BMW's rumored to be testing four different engines for the next generation: S65 V8 in bi-turbo flavor, modified N54/55 inline-six, the monster S63 V10, or an S63-based V6. A V6 M3? Someone's gonna get shot talking like that. (H/T Declan!)
As expected, the 2010 Mercedes S63 AMG and S65 AMG are launching with the same 6.3-liter V8 and 6.0-liter V12 as before, only now good for a bit more power — 525 HP and 612 HP, respectively.

If going for the production car land speed record isn't your cup of chai skim latte, there's no need to go for the Brabus Rocket. The Mercedes tuning haus also offers a more sedate build of the AMG CLS63. That is, the S63, which boasts a tuning kit affecting a power boost from 507 hp to to 550 hp and torque from 465…
