Engines are getting smaller. There's nothing we can do about that. But that doesn't mean they can't get more powerful. Just look at what ze Germans have been doing. Where the previous BMW
M5, for example, had a V10, the new one has a twin-turbo V8. Ditto the Audi
RS6 Avant. But what about Mercedes? Benz may have seemed the last holdout, sticking to its 6.3-liter V8 like a homesick kid to his mother at summer-camp drop-off. But that doesn't mean AMG doesn't see the writing on the wall.
