I don't think its that great, I mean 525HP from 7.3 L is nothing to call home about. I'm sure the SL500 from the same era is almost as fast.

I think the 500's from that time had like 380 hp, still good

couldnt possibly be related to the zonda engine?

Mercedes could have done something to that engine to make it more powerfull, on paper a 7.3-litre engine sounds amazing, but there are alot smaller engines with as much power!

yes, same engine, probably updated but the same.
i agree with cliffy, they could have put in an extra 100bhp or something!
