While to a radio program about Sign Language (ASL) behind the wheel of a 2013 S65 AMG in rush-hour traffic, I learned facial expressions are an integral of ASL.

I wondered how a hearing-impaired would’ve interpreted my face in the day, when I first the 5097-pound S65 AMG run from 0-60 mph in a tad over 4 seconds. Or when I the S65′s $230,265 window to the $178,185 one on its slightly tamer sibling, the S600. Both me with a facial expression could be described as dramatic and insane. And those two adjectives much sum up our thoughts on the S65 AMG and S600 their weeks-long stays at our

In the past, we sampled the 429-hp V-8 in the volume-leading S550 and the torquey V-6 in the S350 and found both to be more than adequate. the S-Class need a 12-cylinder? Not at But after driving these beasts, it’s hard to the S-Class being powered any way.

Performance wise, the weren’t too far apart in a straight despite the S65′s power The S600′s 5.5-liter twin-turbo rated at 510-hp and 612 lb-ft, the 5029-pound sedan from mph in just 4.6 seconds, and it completed the mile in 13.1 seconds at mph. The S65 AMG and its 6.0-liter, hand-built, V-12, which produces 621 hp and 738 of torque, posted a 0-60 mph run of 4.3 and a quarter-mile time of 12.6 at 116.1 mph. Incidentally, the figure tied the S63 AMG we tested summer. Both cars are to a five-speed automatic — the only Mercedes has that’s stout to handle all the power — with the tweaked by AMG to shift a tad faster.

Surprisingly, the S600 and S65 AMG were on the skidpad (0.87 g) and the figure with both cars a time of 26.1 seconds at g.

Performance similarities aside, two S-Classes have very personalities. The S600 is the understated with nothing more a few “V-12″ badges on its front and unique exhaust pipes and to set it apart from more S-Classes. It’s extremely too, whether it’s or at wide open throttle. At I caught myself moving my jaw to make sure my ears clogged. To make things fancier, our S600 tester’s Designo interior package, its taupe leather, polished walnut trim, and chrome appears to have been from an opulent Art Deco in Beverly Hills.

The S65 AMG, on the other hand, has the you expect for a car from Affalterbach, its outspoken exhaust note either loudly or very A few staffers argued that the S65 is a bit too but AMG aficionados should find the note just right. I think it could be louder. We preferred the S65′s steering over that of the S600, was slightly overboosted.

Out in public, the S65 AMG was an head-turner. In addition to its signature AMG exhaust tips, body and five-spoke rims, this S65 was with a special shade Designo Magno Platinum — aka gray metallic — with a finish, a combination that $3950 to the sticker price. flashier, especially for a S-Class, was the interior, which featured and door panels wrapped in brown diamond-stitched leather, everything else from the to the dashboard was covered in either leather or Alcantara.

As expected, both cars are with technology and interior Passengers are protected by safety including Active Blind assist, Lane Keeping and Benz’s Distronic adaptive control system. Both also have a premium #038; Olufsen sound rear DVD entertainment system, and seats for every passenger the person sitting in the middle seat.

While we usually all things sporting an AMG badge, hard to overlook at what the brings to the table. With a tag that’s at least $50,000 than the S65, the S600 its rowdy AMG’s performance, list, and V-12 exclusivity. you really want to hear growl or feel the need to it’s the 12-pot S-Class to
