2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 Review
The S-Class is hands down the best car that Mercedes-Benz has ever made. It represents the best of everything that the German automakers are capable of. One might even think that there is no way to improve this masterpiece in any way. Well, there is certainly a way to make it even better, and that way is to get it through AMG treatment.
Mercedes-AMG currently makes two models for the S-Class—S63 and S65. The S63 features a similar V8 engine that can also be found in the S560. The S65, however, features a monstrous V12 engine handcrafted by the engineers at AMG.
The S-Class makes no compromise when it comes to its design. The same strategy is followed when the sedan is up for the AMG treatment. The S-Class receives the best AMG upgrade out of all the other Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
The overall exterior of the S65 looks pretty much identical to the standard S-Class— except for the huge vents in the front bumper. The rear bumper is also changed as it features four massive exhaust tips and aggressive styling. The interior is also custom designed by AMG, which is surprisingly much better and pleasing to the eye than a normal Mercedes-Benz design.
Performance is the only factor which compels people to go for the AMG variant. S65 is a top-of-the-line model. This means it receives the most powerful engine that AMG currently produces. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 features a gigantic 6.0 L V12 bi-turbo engine that produces 621 HP and 738 lb-ft. This ridiculously powerful engine can blast the car from a stand-still to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds.
The current S65 model features the 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission. This transmission offers three different driving modes to choose from. These are comfort, sport, and manual mode. The last mode allows the driver to take control of gear shifts through paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
Comfort and Convenience
S65 features heated and ventilated seats, which are also electronically adjustable. The front seats are also equipped with the best massage system in the automotive market. The car can also be easily connected to the Mercedes-Benz mBrace app. This app allows the user to control the basic functions of the car from the outside.
The 2018 S65 features a 64 color ambient lighting system to enhance the mood while on the go. It also comes with the Air balance fragrance system by Mercedes-Benz. This system infuses the refreshing fragrance inside the whole cabin so that you can ride with unmatched comfort and luxury. There is also a dual zone climate control so that the driver and the passengers can adjust their temperature according to their preference.
Mercedes-AMG S65 is available at a starting price of CAD$ 299,000.
