Still shocked Mercedes-AMG is planning to phase out its V12 engines for the non-Maybach-branded models in the near future? Don’t make a big deal out of it - after all, the German automaker has one of the finest V8s on the market today. In the S-Class, the 4.0-liter biturbo motor with 463 hp (345 kW) in the S560 variant, paired to a nine-speed automatic, grants the sedan with an impressive acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (0-96 kph) in 4.6 seconds.

If that’s not enough for your standards, there’s also the AMG-tuned S63 version of the same unit, which generates 603 hp (450 Kw) for a top speed in excess of 164 mph (264 kph).
