S 65 AMG and SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION in Tokyo and Los Angeles

Double world premiere for Mercedes-AMG


Affalterbach/Tokyo/Los Angeles - Two motor shows, two new AMG high- performance vehicles: Mercedes-AMG is presenting the S 65 AMG and the SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION simultaneously at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the Tokyo Motor Show (both from 20 November to 1 December 2013).

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH says "The two new AMG high-performance vehicles represent the spectacular next level for our exciting model array. The S 65 AMG stands for maximum exclusiveness and the unparalleled dynamism of a V12. With the SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION we are showing an ultimate, particularly attractive variant of our super sports car."

Twelve cylinders, biturbocharging, an output of 463 kW (630 hp) and torque of 1000 Nm - the new Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG sets new standards. These figures enable the S 65 AMG to outperform all other models in its segment. This superiority is highlighted by the car's performance: the S 65 AMG accel- erates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).

Compared with the predecessor, fuel consumption has been reduced by 2.4 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC, combined). With fuel consumption of 11.9 litres per
100 kilometres (NEDC combined), the new S 65 AMG is the world's most fuel- efficient V12 high-performance saloon in terms of power and torque. The range- topping 12-cylinder model already meets the requirements of the EU6 emissions standard, which is not due to come into force until 2015.
