Personally, I think the point is starting to show the what is possible with the new engine platform. The 400R was (is??) the peak of the Inline 6 "VERADO" 4-stroke platform.
The first largest Verado was 275 HP, I believe, and over the years they bumped it up to where they now have a "non-racing" 400 HP.
The I-6 has done really well for Mercury, but they are moving the the new V-6 and V-8 platform and showing us the potential.

There is no way that 450 HP is the peak of this new platform and I am excited for what is coming next.

You answered your own question....for more Acceleration and Top end.

A lot of the CC's are performance hulls who also enjoy those benefits as well.

The new Tiranna picked up 10 mph with the swap in a Giant ass heavy boat (be with 6 motors) but that is pretty badass IMO.
