Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG Overview

The S65 AMG is a performance-tuned variant of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which ranks high in the class of super luxury sports cars for its dual focus on extreme luxury and power. It's also the more powerful of two high-performance S Class AMG trims, the other being the S63. While reviewers find the S63's 518-horsepower V8 engine awesome, most agree that the S65's 604-horsepower twin-turbo V12 is plain obscene. The S65 AMG features a 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine that generates 604 horsepower at 4,800 - 5,100 rpm and 738 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 - 4,000 rpm. An AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS five-speed automatic transmission is standard among all mercedes s-class accessories. According to Mercedes-Benz, the S65 AMG has a top speed of 155 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. The EPA reports that it nets a city/highway fuel economy of 11/17 mpg.
