Big engines are an endangered species in the motor car due to emission laws in Europe and the cost of fuel The noise of a V12 singing or a V10 howling at full chat are songs that are fading. Smaller capacity engines and turbocharging is the way of the future, but Mercedes-Benz has bucked that trend with the S65 AMG.
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been said to be one of the most complete cars in the world. Technologically advanced, handsome, and luxurious it ticks many boxes. Engineers at AMG have been hard at work on the S65 model, a machine that packs a twin-turbo V12 punch! From its 6.0 litre engine 621BHP and 736lb-ft of torque can shoot this palace on wheels from 0-62MPH in just 4.3 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 155MPH. Inside sports seats with body hugging bolsters make their selves at home in the cabin along with the usual AMG trims. Capable of 23.7MPG and CO2 emissions of 279g/km, it is said to be the most efficient V12 in the world.
