p.s on the other hand benz used to have 7.3 liter v12 with 600 hp? Zonda still uses it and it is naturally aspirated and what a sound does it have... YUMMY.

p.s.s 7.3L V12 engine generating a mind-bending 582bhp and 570 pounds of trq.

p.s.s.s but in 2002 benz had: S600 has a 362 hp V-12 engine with a new feature that disables six cylinders when peak power is not required for improved efficiency. ROFL now thats a laugh a v12 with 362 hp Daaaaaaamn.

What's even more ROFL is that 1992 S600 had more hp.

Yeah, but S600 was not available in 1992. They had 600SEL. Still nice one. S600 came after 95+ I suppose.

No McLaren is an independent company that partnered with BMW to build the McLaren F1:
