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.
