2014 Mercedes S 65 AMG official Images (14)

Mercedes-Benz have revealed the official details and images of the S 65 AMG super saloon. Powered by a twelve cylinder, twin-turbocharged, 630 hp monster of a bi-turbo engine, with 1000 Newton-metres of torque – the new S 65 AMG accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, with a top speed of 250 kmph (electronically limited).

Design wise, the S 65 AMG distinguishes itself with the large, upright and distinctly three-dimensional V12 radiator grille with its six twin louvres in high-gloss chrome acting as the main differentiators. The front apron also has three large cooling air intakes. The front section sports the AMG-typical, stylised “A” to emphasise the exclusivity of the S 65 AMG.

Further exclusive design features include the “V12 BITURBO” lettering on the wings and the “S 65 AMG” model badge on the boot lid – both in new, modern typography. The AMG sports exhaust system with its two chrome-plated, separate twin tailpipes is a source of fascination both visually and acoustically.

The S 65 AMG features the unbelievable AMG sports suspension with MAGIC BODY CONTROL

The S 65 AMG features as standard the AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The new S-Class is the first car in the world able to recognise road surface undulations in advance. If ROAD SURFACE SCAN detects such undulations with the help of the stereo camera, MAGIC BODY CONTROL adjusts the suspension in advance to suit the situation. The “Comfort” and “Sport” modes are available for a driver-defined suspension setup. While AMG-specific elastokinematics on the 4-link front axle and multi-link independent rear suspension make for greater directness when a dynamic driving style is adopted, the AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL ensures the proverbial Mercedes long-distance comfort.

The S 65 AMG is equipped as standard with ESP® Dynamic Cornering Assist. Targeted braking intervention at the inside rear wheel results in defined cornering of the vehicle and ensures greater agility when taking corners at high speed. There is no irritating understeer when turning into corners.

•    Exclusive carbon-fibre engine cover with AMG engine badge
•    The AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONICtranmission
•    Lithium-ion battery reduces weight by over 20 kilograms
