The Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG Coupé is the new twelve-cylinder top-of-the-range model in the S-Class Coupé series. The AMG V12 delivers a peak output of 463 kW (630 hp) and a maximum torque of 1000 newton metres – resulting in effortlessly superior performance: the S 65 AMG Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
V12-specific features include the countless design elements in high-sheen chrome at the front, sides and rear which are particularly effective in conjunction with dark paintwork: the large central Mercedes star on the front apron, the “twin blade” radiator grille, all of the air intake grilles, the trim strip on the “A-wing”, the side flics (air deflector elements) and the front splitter are chromed-trimmed.
At the side, the eye is drawn to the “V12 BITURBO” lettering on the wings and the high-sheen chrome inserts in the side skirts – which harmonise perfectly with the high-sheen polished forged wheels. The rear view is also memorable: the AMG sports exhaust system’s two chromed twin tailpipes in V12 design are integrated into the rear apron.
The extraordinary character is also evident on the inside: the S 65 AMG Coupé welcomes its occupants with an incomparably exquisite ambience. The interior of this two-door car is dominated by the AMG sports seats. Additional details include a seven-speed AMG Speedshift, and a Magic Body Control suspension system that allows the car to lean into bends, similar to a motorcyclist or skier.
