It's how car makers meet new emission standards and MPG requirements. The turbos kick in on acceleration, then shut off during steady cruising speed.
Those big thirsty 5L V8s are a dying breed. For that reason 550 owners should take good care of their cars and hang on to them. In 5 years they will be a rarity and possibly sought after.
