Testing AMG's Awesome 6.3-Liter V8 Engine

These ultra-modern dynamic test benches at AMG can accommodate engines with an output of more than 735 kW/1000 hp. The 6.3-liter V8 that's under the hood of the SLS is only half that, so it can take the pressure. Here's some more photos if you're interested. Frankly, who wouldn't be?
