S65 AMG in Time for Christmas

S65 AMG in Time for Christmas

Later in the week, Mercedes-Benz will open the order books for their S65 AMG model which will cost from £183,065 with first deliveries anticipated for the end of the year. The S65 AMG will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine which produces 738lb of torque and 621bhp. This enables the model to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds with a top speed limited to 155mph. The S65 AMG uses a seven-speed automatic transmission with three modes available to drivers; Controlled Efficiency, Sport and Manual. Along with this, there is also a start-stop function available.

A new lithium-ion battery has been incorporated, which reduces the weight by 20kg. Another technology which has been included is the Mercedes Magic Body Control Suspension system, which enables better handling by allowing the car to lean into corners better.

20-inch AMG alloy wheels have been fitted, along with a new sports exhaust and some minor bodywork improvements. On the inside, there are new AMG sport style seats and a steering wheel with a head-up display and Mercedes-Benz touchpad infotainment system included as a standard.
