  4. ~570hp I would guess. Renntech's 7414cc stroker never put out quite as much power as Brabus' 7255cc version (582hp), and AMG's 'official' 7291cc motor only produced 555hp. The AMG motor was later used in the Pagani Zonda, Pagani now squeezing over 600hp out of it naturally aspirated. The CLK-GTR SS also used the 7291 to produce 720hp, but as a stroked version of the existing 6898cc GT1-spec V12 rather than the 'street' M120 V12.

    Basically, it likely has between 555hp and 582hp (unless Renntech managed to get their hands on one of the two 720hp motors, and stroke it, before they were even created), so 570hp is probably around the mark.

    Also, it's unlikely that it was actually offered with a six-speed manual, as the most powerful engine Mercedes use it behind puts out around 270hp, while the five-speed 5G-tronic auto can handle the full torque of the AMG M285 V12 (612hp and 738ft-lbs). I'd guess that even the 3.0 V6 diesel could break the six-speed.
