Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the 2015 S65 AMG, which is powered by a massive 6.0L twin-turbocharged V12 engine with 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft. of torque. The 2015 S65 AMG is going to officially debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 20, with sales kicking off in March of 2014.
The S65 AMG is powered by the same V12 as the SL65 AMG and the former S65 AMG, although it now has more power. It only takes 4.3 seconds to reach 0-62 mph and it has an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph. What’s interesting is the fact that the less-powerful S63 is actually a few ticks faster at 3.9 seconds. The slower time could be due to the S65’s extra weight or the fact that it only sends its power to the rear wheels, compared to the S63, which has more traction with its 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.
The S65 rides on shiny 20-inch wheels with 16 spokes that are twisted, which causes the light-catching contours to radiate to the center of the wheel hub. Inside the S65 gets nappa leather and AMG sports seats. It also gets AMG-specific gauges and a new head-up display and touchpad.
The 2015 S65 will start at € 232,050 in Germany, but US pricing hasn’t been announced.
