The new Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Driving performance in its perfect form

Affalterbach - Twelve cylinders, twin-turbocharging, 621 hp (463 kW) of output and 738 lb-ft of torque - the new S65 AMG sets new standards as the most powerful vehicle in its segment. Exceptional performance and outstanding dynamics - these are the hallmarks of the AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine. The AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL comes standard with ROAD SURFACE SCAN, the world's first suspension with eyes. It goes without saying that the S65 AMG offers supreme exclusivity in design and equipment specification. Two innovations -- the head-up display and the touchpad -- represent further enhancements in terms of comfort and safety.

The S65 AMG is the only high-performance 12-cylinder automobile from a German premium manufacturer - and it's a car with a pedigree: the first generation of the S65 AMG (V 220) was launched in 2003 (2005 in the U.S.), with the second generation (V 221) being produced from 2006 until 2013.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "Soon after the successful launch of the S63 AMG, we are unveiling the new S65 AMG. Supreme exclusivity and incomparable dynamism provide the guarantee of a high fascination potential. With the third generation of the S65 AMG, we offer our loyal and discerning V12 customers a unique high- performance automobile."
