Mercedes-AMG is offering its S65 Cabriolet with a V12 biturbo engine. The impressive 6.0-liter engine allows passengers to enjoy open-top driving in the newest flagship model from the S-Class family. Mercedes AMG pleases all petrolheads, presenting a bunch of new features with the S 65 Cabriolet. These features include maximum torque of 1000 newton metres, AIRMATIC-based sport suspension, and an output of 463 kW.
The manufacturer gave a lot of attention to the comfort of drivers, providing them with a new dimension of open-air monitoring. The AIRCAP wind protection system, AIRSCARF heating system, and heated armrests allow passengers to feel comfortable during the ride. There are 4 colors available for the three-layered acoustic fabric soft tops. In spite of what color is selected, the soft tops will be made of nappa leather and DINAMICA microfibre of a very high quality.
Do you know any other car manufacturer that offers a wider range of 12-cylinder high-performance models than Mercedes-Benz? There isn’t one. And now, the Mercedes-AMG has added S 65 Cabriolet to the list of its most powerful cars: S 65 Saloon, S 65 Coupé, G 65 off-roader, and SL 65 Roadster.
There can’t be no denying that the outstanding design of the cabriolet’s ceramic high-sheen forged wheels gets a lot of attention. This exceptional interpretation of classic sport car rims gives its wheel a total of 16 spokes twists.
Its contours capture the light, which then radiates to the center of the wheel hub. The effect is that the wheel looks a lot bigger than its actual dimensions of 8.5 J x 20 at the front and 9.5 J x 20 at the rear. It’s hard not to like the forged aluminium wheel bolt cover that’s screwed on and is fully integrated. The bolt cover takes on the appearance of the center locks that are used in motorsport. AMG lettering is incorporated into the rim, adding that extra styling touch.
There are three variants of forged wheels that are available as options. One of them is matt black and features a high-sheen rim flange. Another option that potential owners would want to consider is the composite brake system that comes with large brake discs and brake callipers with a grey finish.
If you like red, you’re in luck as the callipers also come in this color. It’s also optional to get the ceramic composite braking system with 420 x 40 mm discs at the front and 360 x 32 mm discs at the rear. This ceramic brake system is 40 percent lighter than the previous one. Its lower unsprung masses improve agility and raise ride comfort as well as boost driving dynamics.
The standard equipment offered with the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Cabriolet is already quite extensive, including the head-up display and the touchpad. All the important information including the vehicle speed, speed limits, traffic signs, and navigation directions are projected from DISTRONIC PLUS onto the windscreen.
AMG is the only company that visualizes the engine speed and the current gear this way. The same happens during the manual transmission mode. A colored upshift bar and all possible elements for the manual gear change are projected onto the windscreen.
There is a display measuring 21 X 7 cm that floats at about 2 m from the driver. Because of its sophisticated touchpad, it has become easier to operate the radio, telephone, and navigation system. All infotainment functions can be controlled with the touchpad. The input space measures 6.5 x 4.5 and is now a part of the handrest. The keypad comes with a convenient cover.
