Wow, they are bringing back the 560!

Of course under the "Mercedes-Maybach" line, but hey, it looks to be one hell of luxury cruiser! More or less the 560 of today, owing everything to pure luxury.. 

Way out of my league but man it sure is easy on the eyes! Check out that engine too!

Just noticed the displacement of the engine is only 4.0 liters! Wonder why they didn't do it up in 5.6 liter trim? Kind of seems pointless to call it a 560 without the 5.6 liter engine.

They did strap some turbos on there at least... but the smaller 4.0 engine is a deal breaker for me! LOL, never mind that the $170,000 price tag excluded me right off the bat.

+1 here on not understanding why MB badged this car as a 560...(It did get our attention though LOL )!

I'd still rather a real 5.6ltr naturally aspirated engine than a 4.0ltr twin turbo...But as you've always maintained, modern technology is always improving, & we can't say that 460-hp ( claimed ) from around 250-cubes is an underachievement LOL !
