Mercedes-AMG today unveiled the new twelve-cylinder top-of-the-range model in
the S-Class Coupe series. As expected, it comes with unique drive comfort,
benchmark performance and exquisite appointments.
The contours of the V12 Coupe are accentuated by a host of expressive design elements in high-sheen chrome. The AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine, with an output of 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque, is unique in its segment, as is the AMG sports suspension, based on Magic Body Control with curve tilting function and Road Surface Scan.
Orders can be placed for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe in the coming weeks, and the United States market launch at Mercedes-Benz sales outlets and authorized dealerships is planned for the end of 2014.
S65 AMG Coupe's Exterior Design: Irresistible Contours
The contours of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe are a captivating sight. 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. The three-dimensional front splitter increases downforce at the front axle, while the gap above the front splitter ensures an effective flow of air to the separate engine oil cooler behind it.
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 harmonize perfectly with the high-sheen polished forged wheels. The rear view is also unmistakable. The AMG sports exhaust system's two chromed twin tailpipes in V12 design are integrated into the rear apron. Above the distinctive diffuser insert, painted in high-gloss black, the trim element forms an effective contrast. It echoes the design of the "A-wings" on the front apron and is finished in high-sheen chrome.
The extraordinary character is also evident on the inside. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe welcomes its occupants with an incomparably exquisite ambience. This two-door features the finest materials, the highest manufacturing quality and an extensive range of standard equipment. In visual terms, the interior is dominated by the sports seats. The upholstery in designo AMG Exclusive Nappa leather with seat upholstery layout in a diamond-pattern design boasts delineated perforations which ensure beautiful harmony between perforations and stylistic stitching. The result is exceptionally neat seams and an unrivalled impression of quality.
Exclusively developed AMG sports seats ensure optimal long-distance comfort. Electric adjustment, memory function, seat heating and climate control are standard features. More contoured seat cushions and backrests improve lateral support when cornering at speed. High-quality AMG badges are prominently displayed on all four backrests, and the AMG crest is embossed on the front center console.
Other features of the exclusive package include the Nappa leather roof liner, a leather-lined dashboard, door center panels in a diamond-pattern design, leather-clad roof grab handles, chromed door pins and AMG stainless steel door sill panels illuminated in white. Customers ordering designo AMG Exclusive Nappa leather upholstery are able to choose between black, porcelain/espresso brown, saddle brown/black and crystal grey/black.
Another typical AMG specialty is the AMG instrument cluster. Information on the engine speed, vehicle speed and much more appears on two animated round dials on the 12.2 inch, high-resolution color TFT display. The typography, the needles in red/silver, the speedometer with its 220 mph scale and the "V12 BITURBO" lettering in the rev counter all have a distinctive AMG look. When the driver's door is opened, an AMG start-up screen appears on the right-hand display, while an animated S65 AMG Coupe appears in the instrument cluster.
