The new S 65 AMG from Mercedes-AMG GmbH is the most powerful model (along with the CL 65) the brand has produced since it was established 35 years ago. The dynamic luxury saloon is powered by a newly designed 6-litre V12 engine whose biturbo technology gives it a level of performance previously unheard of in this engine size class: the twelve-cylinder AMG power plant has an output of 612 hp and develops its maximum torque of 738 lb-ft between 2000 and 4000 rpm. These impressive figures are responsible for a new dimension of performance: the S 65 can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Much of the credit for this impressive performance is shared by the all-new design of the biturbo system, which features larger turbochargers and a new, more powerful charge-air cooling system, and the increase in the engine displacement (to 5980 cc) as well as many other engine design measures.

AMG SPEEDSHIFT five-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel controls

Power is transmitted by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT five-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel gearshift controls. The engine's high maximum torque level of 885 lb-ft has been limited electronically to 738 lb-ft and a number of measures – including the adoption of newly clutch pack discs with a high-quality metal coating as well as modified shift and torque-converter-lockup logic – have been taken to optimise key transmission components. The modified drive shafts and upgraded hub carriers also reflect the high levels of power and torque available.

Active Body Control with sports suspension, eight-piston composite brake system

The S 65 AMG is equipped as standard with Active Body Control (ABC) and special AMG spring struts with firmer damping. Fully reworked dynamic handling control systems such as ABS, Brake Assist, ASR and ESP® (Electronic Stability Program) complement the enhanced chassis setup. In order to cope with the high power output of the AMG biturbo engine, the front wheels of both the AMG V12 top model is equipped with a newly developed, high-performance eight-piston composite brake system with 390 x 36 mm grey cast-iron discs and aluminium brake-disc bowls. Contact with the road is taken care of by AMG 19-inch twin-spoke wheels equipped with 245/40 ZR 19 tyres at the front and 275/35 ZR 19 tyres at the rear.

AMG Styling and exclusive nappa leather appointments as standard

The S 65 AMG features the distinctive, powerful looks of AMG styling, which comes standard. The front and rear aprons as well as the side skirts blend harmoniously with the timelessly elegant design of the Mercedes model. The chromed "V12 Biturbo" lettering on the front wings indicates the exceptional dynamic qualities of the vehicle, while the two chrome-finished twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system at a sporty touch at the rear.

Inside, a particularly stylish ambience is created by the extensive use of fine wood trim elements and the "Exclusive nappa" leather upholstery, which is available in three colours. The S 65 AMG has dynamic multicontour front seats which are electrically adjustable and feature a memory function and seat heating as well as the characteristic AMG upholstery piping and perforation pattern. The distinctive style of the twelve-cylinder flagship models is rounded off by the AMG instrument cluster calibrated up to 223 mph, the AMG ergonomic steering wheel with gearshift buttons, and the chromed stainless-steel door sills featuring the AMG logo.

The standard equipment of the S 65 AMG also includes the PRE-SAFE anticipatory occupant protection system which can recognise a potential accident situation early enough to take appropriate measures to prepare the occupants and the vehicle.
