Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG review (2005-2009)

The driver is early, which is surprising with over at his disposal. Actually, he’s got from a twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 his right foot, which suggest that we’re to drive a hypercar like a Enzo or a Porsche Carrera GT. But not, all that power is in a saloon — the Mercedes-Benz S65

It seems that Mercedes 600bhp+ remains the preserve of rare, super expensive Cars like AMG’s own CLK-GTR, a Le Mans racer for the that cost $1m and was only for a handful of extremely wealthy It delivered 612bhp, but such is the of their progress Mercedes can now the same output in a saloon, a and a coupe in the AMG S65, SL65 and respectively. Throw in the 626bhp McLaren SLR and the German company has models offering 600+bhp rival manufacturers can muster

Yet, it’s not unreasonable to that such power in a is unnecessary and unusable, and until I’d the S65 I’d have been inclined to I’d have argued that the really has all the power it could need in S600 guise, its twin-turbo V12 offering 500bhp and pace. But AMG customers clearly more and are willing to pay £142,000 for the That’s over £50,000 than its hugely capable relative so the AMG needs to be very indeed.

So, as well as every conceivable aid, and all of Mercedes’ cutting safety, entertainment and navigation the V12 engine is enlarged to 6.0-litres hiking the power by 112bhp to Torque increases too, an already enormous 800Nm in the to 1000Nm, comfortably ahead of any

Where the S65 really excels is in the way it gathers pace while Motorway slip roads no fear and overtaking is a cinch just point and prod and the S65 you to where you want to be effortlessly. dragster quick, it scarcely how swiftly the needle sweeps the speedometer. However, allow speedometer needle to do it’s trick and the fuel one drops as spectacularly – you’ll struggle to the official combined consumption of 19mpg.

But the real reason for restraint is it’s just getting its stride at UK limits, meaning if you resist the temptation to press on be straining at its electronic 155mph in no time — and you’ll be at jail time. With absurd performance it’s that more than the engine has been revised lesser S-Class models.

The are heavily revised, the front constructed of a composite material, the S65 retardation to equal its acceleration, its ABC (Active Body Control) responses have been too. The result is that roll, pitch and dive eliminated, but not at the ultimate expense of which, while firm too comprised. The steering is as devoid of as its S-Class relatives, but the S65 isn’t a car be hustling down a back its size reigning in your rather than its lack of

Inside it’s all familiar details like the perforated active seats, wheel-mounted for the smooth five-speed automatic and the speedometer calibrated to 220mph at something a bit more special, but it’s little different. styling follows the usual AMG too. A bigger, more front end feeds air to that engine and brakes, there’s side sills and under the bumper nestle four oval exhausts.
