The new Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet

Open-top driving with prestige and performance

With the new S65 Cabriolet, Mercedes-AMG is offering a performance car that combines the impressive power of the 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine with the pleasure of open-top driving for four occupants for the first time. An output of 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, the sport suspension based on AIRMATIC and the exquisite appointments emphasize the exceptional status of the new flagship model in the S-Class family from Mercedes-AMG. A new dimension in open-air motoring is guaranteed by the automatic wind protection system AIRCAP, the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, heated armrests and intelligent climate control. The three-layered acoustic fabric soft top is available in four colors, and has a very high-quality interior lining in nappa leather and DINAMICA microfiber.

No other car manufacturer in the world offers such a wide portfolio of twelve-cylinder models as Mercedes-AMG: The S65 Sedan, SL65 Roadster, G65 off-roader and S65 Coupe are now joined by the new S65 Cabriolet as a further high-performance alternative for discerning automobile enthusiasts.

"The customer base for our V12 biturbo engine expects the ultimate in every respect. That is why we are offering a four-seater high-performance convertible with this legendary power unit for the first time. The new S65 Cabriolet sets benchmarks for all relevant criteria: top performance, a breathtaking driving experience and exquisite appointments," says Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The peak output of 621 horsepower and maximum torque of 738 lb-ft make for effortlessly superior performance. The Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds. The AMG Driver's package, standard in the U.S. market, includes an increase in top speed to 186 mph (also electronically limited). Overall, it is the unrivalled 12-cylinder driving experience that thrills much more than facts and figures: stylish driving comfort and effortless power delivery combine with great refinement and the unmistakable AMG V12 engine sound.
