Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled the extremely powerful and luxurious S65 AMG Coupe. The big coupe offers unique drive comfort, benchmark performance and exquisite appointments.

"There are AMG fans for whom our V12 biturbo engine is the measure of all things. For this clientele we have developed a unique car in the form of the new S65 AMG Coupe. From driving dynamics to comfort and equipment – our new twelve-cylinder coupe surpasses even the highest of expectations", comments Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Pretty much, the new S65 AMG Coupe looks like the V8-powered S63 AMG model. Still, there are few different details like a different mesh for the front grille as well as the vents, yellow brake calipers instead of red ones, a set of unique alloy wheels 8.5J x 20" and 9.5J x 20" fitted with high-performance tires measuring 255/40 R20 and 285/35 R20. Last, but not least is the new rear diffuser and "V12 BITURBO" badges.

The engine is the well-known 6.0 liter V12 bi-turbo – 630HP (463 kW) and 1,000Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is connected to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC sending all that torque to the rear wheels. 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Other special features include Magic Body Control with Curve Tilting Function as well as Road Surface Scan. The S65 AMG Coupe comes with a ceramic compound brake system, which is 20 % lighter.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe is already available on the EU market with pricing starting from €244,009 (VAT included). It is expected to hit the US market in the end of September.
