The new S 65 AMG.
Twelve cylinders, twin-turbocharging, 463 kW (630 hp) of output and 1,000 newton metres of torque – the new S 65 AMG sets new standards as the most powerful vehicle in its segment of the market. Exceptional performance and outstanding dynamism – these are the hallmarks of the AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine. With its reduced fuel consumption and compliance with the EU 6 exhaust emissions standard, the new V12 saloon is fit for the future. The AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL comes as standard with ROAD SURFACE SCAN, the world’s first suspension with eyes. It goes without saying that the S 65 AMG offers supreme exclusivity in design and equipment specification. The head-up display and the touchpad represent further enhancements in terms of comfort and safety. The S 65 AMG is the only high-performance 12-cylinder automobile from a German premium manufacturer.
Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “Soon after the successful launch of the S 63 AMG, we are unveiling the new S 65 AMG. Supreme exclusivity and incomparable dynamism provide the guarantee of a high fascination potential. With the third generation of the S 65 AMG, we offer our loyal and discerning V12 customers a unique high-performance automobile.” This superiority is highlighted by the car’s performance: the S 65 AMG accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, with a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
The strengths of the 12-cylinder biturbo engine from Mercedes-AMG include its effortless acceleration in all speed ranges as well as its refined operation with the distinctive V12 sound typical of AMG. In short: the S 65 AMG impresses with its superior and stylish performance. Compared with the previous model, fuel consumption has been reduced by 2.4 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC, combined).
“One man, one engine.”
Opening the bonnet reveals the exclusive carbon-fibre/aluminium engine cover, which is a further sign of the exceptional status of the AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine. The 12-cylinder engine is assembled by hand at AMG’s engine production facility in compliance with the most rigorous quality standards according to the philosophy “one man, one engine”.
Apart from serving as an AMG hallmark confirming superlative precision and production quality, the AMG engine badge bearing the engine technician’s signature underneath the Mercedes star offers unmistakable proof of the peerless DNA of Mercedes-Benz’s high-performance brand.
The S 65 AMG shows off its exceptional status not just with regard to its technology, but also in terms of design. The sensual clarity typical of Mercedes-Benz, with its classic architecture and flowing profile, is combined with expressive elements typical of AMG.
Luxurious and stately, powerful and exclusive, dynamic and prestigious – the S 65 AMG is a true eye-catcher with a self-assured presence. Like the previous model, the new S 65 AMG is available exclusively with a long wheelbase.
Exclusivity and luxury, combined with emphatically sporty design elements – the interior of the S 65 AMG fascinates through its exceptional feel, highest-grade materials and exquisite quality. The S 65 AMG comes equipped with head-up display and touchpad as standard. The head-up display projects important information such as vehicle speed, speed limits, navigation information, traffic signs and information from DISTRONIC PLUS onto the windscreen. The new, innovative Mercedes-Benz touchpad makes it significantly easier to operate radio, telephone and navigation system. Unlike in conventional systems, the touchpad makes it possible to operate all infotainment functions.
The AMG V12 saloon will celebrate its double world premiere this year simultaneously at the Los Angeles International Auto Show and at the Tokyo Motor Show. The market launch will start in March 2014.
