Upping the ante for the S-Class range is the new 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe, the latest range-topping model unveiled in a press release issued from the automaker today.
At the epicenter of the S65 AMG Coupe is a 6.0-liter V12 engine that receives added power from a twin-turbo setup. This rather large engine is set to have an output of 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque, which will equate to an estimated 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds and a limited top speed of 186 mph.
Sending all of this power and aiding the car’s acceleration is the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission, which sends all power to the rear wheels. This transmission also has the ability to control the power in more ways than one with three individual driving modes: Controlled Efficiency (C), Sport (S) and Manual (M). The Controlled Efficiency mode utilizes the car’s ECO start/stop function, while the Sport and Manual modes emphasize the car’s driving ability and power.

A unique technology featured in the new S65 AMG Coupe is the Magic Body Control, which allows the car’s suspension to adjust to corners in order to provide a more dynamic ride. This is done through the Road Surface Scan, which utilizes a stereo camera that detects surface undulations in advance, and the curve tilting function, which gathers information from the aforementioned scan and adjusts the suspension in advance to suit the situation.
Inside, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe sports a luxurious yet sporty interior. Sport seats greet the car’s occupants, along with designo AMG Exclusive Nappa leather upholstery, with the seats sporting a diamond-pattern design. Creature comforts found in the car’s cabin include seat heating, electric adjustment, memory function, climate control, more contoured seat cushions and headrests, a heads-up display, touchpad and much more.
