That's pretty cool looking, although kind of sad output for such a big engine. I have a 5.7L engine in my truck, but it puts out a lot more than 85hp.. and it's a V8.

but, as it proves, its not all about power/torque etc, as chris_knows stated, its capable of pulling more weight than a Ford F150, with lots more power!

That's true.. and is quite surprising when you really think about it. It's just the thought of such a big engine size yet a rather small number for the performance stats.

i agree with you, mercedes could have planted at least 200+bhp in that thing, after all, it is a large engine
