It’s engine is based on the CL 600 model, engineers put their hands on the 12-cylinder engine which has been significantly boosted. The number 800 refers to the exact number of horses provided by the powerful engine installed, which obviously received some technical and structural changes to allow the car to deal with new performance. The base engine is in fact the 5.5-liter V12 adopted in the new Mercedes S 600 increased to 6.3 liters, which comes to release 800 hp and 1,423 Nm at 2.100 rpm.
