The M156 is the first automobile V8 engine designed autonomously by Mercedes-Benz subsidiary Mercedes-AMG, as previous AMG engines have always been based on original Mercedes engines. The engine was designed to be a naturally aspirated racing unit, and is also used in a number of high-performance AMG-badged Mercedes-Benz models.

The M156 displaces 6,208 cc (6.2 L; 378.8 cu in) and shares very little with other Mercedes-Benz engine families like the M155. The bore spacing, block design, and other features are unique to the AMG engine.

Although this engine displaces 6.2 litres, it is marketed as the “6.3” to commemorate Mercedes’ famed 6.3 L M100 engine, its first production V8.

The engine uses a bore and stroke of 102.2 mm × 94.6 mm (4.02 in × 3.72 in). When introduced in the 2007 CLK63 AMG, output was 475 hp (482 PS; 354 kW) at 6,800 rpm with 630 N⋅m (465 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,200 rpm. For the 2007 CLS63 and E63, output was 507 hp (514 PS; 378 kW) at 6,800 rpm with 630 N⋅m (465 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,200 rpm. The 2007 ML63 had 503 hp (510 PS; 375 kW), and the 2008 C63 had 451 hp (457 PS; 336 kW). The final 2015 C63 had 500 hp (507 PS; 373 kW).

The engine, however, has been uprated to produce 518 hp (525 PS; 386 kW) and 465 lb⋅ft (630 N⋅m) of torque in the late S 63, E 63, SL 63, CLS 63 & CL 63 models
