2016 M Hardcore LTD ???? Anybody know what this model is ??

I was looking at online parts fiche... and came across the listing for this model ... 2016 M8000 HARDCORE LTD in both a 153 and a 162. Never heard of it. Can't find much on it except for a video that isn't in English. Was it an over-seas model ??

SOOO... as I'm watching the video (not understanding a word being said), I come across a couple interesting things ...

1) at 0:23-0:25 ... they pan up the front left corner of the sled. You can see a Ctec2 sticker and just as they get to the hood section, you can see the start of the engine size... looks like it could be a 6... maybe an 8. Hard to tell. But since I don't see any other motor in this model except for an 800..... HHMM....

2) THEN at 0:38, they show the whole front of the sled.... showing it clearly says 8000 .... and you can still see the Ctec2 sticker tucked up by the A-arms..... HHHMMM .... what am I seeing .....

3) A 1:19 they jump to the console and gauge area and clearly show the "new" digital gauge like the 6000 series sleds..... again, I can only find this HARDCORE LTD listed as an 800.... even on Cat's parts fiche..... even MORE HHHHMMMMM ....

Now to burst your bubble on this being proof of the 800 Ctec2...... at 2:44 they show another front view.... and this time it clearly shows a 6000 on the hood .... DAMN !!!! I was thinking I found something .....

I guess with the extremely slow release of the parts fiches this season, they just don't have all the models out yet. SO.... Cat made a 2016 M HARDCORE LTD that I'm betting most didn't even know about.........

Options suck.....at least having to choose which ones to waste money on..........
