The new S65 AMG sets new standards as the most powerful vehicle in the
segment of luxury sedans with its twin-turbo twelve-cylinder engine with 630 hp
of output and 738 lb-ft (1000 Nm) of torque.
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 2014 S65 AMG offers supreme exclusivity in design and equipment specification. Two innovations, the head-up display and the touchpad, represent further enhancements in terms of comfort and safety.
The S65 AMG's top two competitors are the Bentley Flying Spur, which also packs a 6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, and the Rolls-Royce Ghost, whose V12 is larger, but produces less horsepower. Neither of these is as tuned for performance as the S65 AMG.
S65 AMG's Sensual and Exclusive Exterior Design
The 2014 S65 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 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is a true eye-catcher with a self-assured presence.
The large, upright and distinctly three-dimensional V12 radiator grille with its six twin louvers in high-gloss chrome underlines the car's special status. An exciting contrast to this is provided by the front apron with its three large cooling air intakes. The front section sports the AMG-typical, stylized "A" to emphasize the powerful exclusivity of the Speedshift AMG.
High-gloss chrome - this design element is used to exclusive effect in the Speedshift AMG. An eye-catching appearance, especially in combination with dark paint colors, is guaranteed by the grilles and flics (air deflectors) on the side air intakes. The three-dimensional front splitter in high-gloss chrome reduces lift on the front axle, while the gap above the front splitter ensures an effective flow of air to the separate engine oil cooler behind it. Also in high-gloss chrome are the inserts in the side sill panels and the trim of the high-gloss black rear diffuser insert. Customers who attach greater value to an understated look have the option of ordering the grilles and flics in high-gloss black.
