Life doesn’t get any sweeter than driving around in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, unless you driving it’s muscular older the brother…. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG. The behemoth has a 621 horsepower Mercedes V12 engine under the hood. The handcrafted engine is able to propel the car from zero to sixty in just 4 seconds, but where it really shines is sixty to one hundred and fifty. It takes off like a rocket ship!
In addition to mind blowing acceleration for a car of this size and weight, it has superb stoping power thanks to massive 6-piston 15.4 inch disc brakes. The Active Body Control system on the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG actively makes use of the vehicles hydraulic suspension system, and is able to reduce body roll by up to 30%.
If you read my article on the 2015 Mercedes S550 Coupe, you will know that the S65 AMG is the pinnacle of Germany engineering and luxury. The interior perfectly blends old world luxury with a modern high-tech design. Every inch of the cabin is wrapped in leather, carbon fiber (or wood), aluminum and glass. With the S65 AMG, you feel powerful, but refined.
At a price tag of over $250,000 (as tested), the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe costs almost a much as a the new Ferrari 488 GTB and the Lamborghini Hurcan. While the Ferrari and Lamborghini may be faster, the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe takes luxury to a whole new level. Do you want a car to take to the race track? Or do you want a car that will leave you refreshed after a cross-country road trip… Plus walk away from almost anything else on the road.
