Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG to debut simultaneously in Tokyo and L.A.

The new Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG will be launched simultaneously at the Tokyo and Los Angeles auto shows later this month. The car is scheduled to go on sale next spring. Pricing has yet to be determined.

Equipped with a twin-turbocharged AMG V12 engine rated at 630 horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG uses an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-TRONIC transmission to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 249 km/h.

Moreover, the Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG comes standard with the AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL, which recognizes road surface undulations in advance, and a lithium-ion battery that replaces both the starter battery and the backup battery -- resulting in a weight saving of over 20 kilograms.

Inside, the Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG boasts exclusive, diamond-patterned nappa leather, sports seats with AMG logos, a high-resolution TFT colour display, a Burmeister audio system, and a panoramic sunroof.
