The part with the Mercedes-AMG SLC (or SLR) disappoints regarding it looks to have a lesser power-plant from the 620 or so hp in the outgoing model. I hope it's not going down-market. But, you also had mentioned that you have heard that Mercedes-AMG are working on another engine that will be in the AMG line-up by the time the SLC/SLR reaches production, there may be some hope here. I just saw in Road & Track that the SLR successor will have a naturally aspirated engine, and a twin-turbo upgrade good for some 700hp!

What is Project 1221 MF1? I haven't heard of this one, and it sounds outrageous, with a possible gas-turbine! Could you provide more information on this, and possibly a rendering?
