I response to:
:The dealer revealed to me that AMG is making a new "C34" that might be supercharged but (in his exact words)"will put put even more HP than the previous C43. Itll be designed to beat the M3." Whether or not he was talking about the e36 M3 or the upcoming e46 M3; Im not sure. But I highly doubt it will be the e46 since the CLK55 will be its most feared competitor.

From what I have read this is true. They are making a C32 AMG with a 3.2 liter supercharged engine. MB's main goal seems to be to make is compete with a E46 M3, because tentative HP figures are "at least 350" according to Motor Trend. So whether it will be beat a E46 M3 nobody knows, but i think MB is looking at the C32 to be the main M3 competitor, not the CLK55. Also mentioned in this article is that "BMW's yet-to-be-released naturally aspirated 3.2liter/343 HP inline six" yada-yada-yada. I really dont go on the E46 M3 board, so i wouldnt know, are these the definite HP numbers for the E46?? I hadn't heard they had been released for the U.S.
