In case you forgot, the twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 mill produces 612 PS (450 kW / 604 hp) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. We are still not sure about the automaker’s plans to drop the V12 production completely, though earlier  reports had hinted at that possibility.

The rumors persist. Chances are that this could be the end of V12, as Merc could go for the fuel-efficient V8l. In these days of increasing standards in fuel-efficiency and CO2 emissions, Merc may be doing what it really wants to.
