German premium car maker Mercedes has showcased the 2014 S65 AMG at the ongoing 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. The S65 AMG is also headed to the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The new 2014 Mercedes S65 AMG is basically the performance variant of the company’s flagship sedan and would become a direct rival to the Audi A8 W12. The new Mercedes S65 AMG is powered by a 6.0 litre Bi-turbo V12 engine that has a max power of supecar-rivaling 630hp and gut wrenching torque of 1000Nm.
The S65 AMG, which is based on the long wheelbase variant, can accelerate from zero to 100 kmph in just 4.3 seconds and hit a top whack of 250 kmph. The car has CO2 emissions of 279 g/km and the car’s motor is being claimed to the most-fuel efficient V12 on Earth. The S65 AMG’s engine is already compliant to EU6 emission standards, which come into effect next in 2015.
The S65 AMG’s motor comes attached to AMG’s pro-performance 7G-TRONIC gearbox. The car also comes equipped to Road Surface Scan for the suspension, speed-sensitive steering with variable steering ratio, AMG carbon-ceramic braking system (optional), light-weight Lithium-ion battery, carbon-fibre engine cover and light-alloy wheels (forged with AMG badging).
The S65 AMG is slated to go on sale in Germany in March next year and prices will start at 232,050 Euros (INR 1.95 crores).
