[UPDATE: The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe made its official debut, read all about it here! ] - Back in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 2015 S63 AMG Coupe based on the recently introduced S-Class Coupe. Now, the German manufacturer is preparing something new, the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe. According to several reports from the German media, it appears that the flagship coupe will make its debut this summer, in July.
Just like the S65 AMG Sedan, we expect the new S65 AMG Coupe to use the same 6.0-liter V12 engine that generates 630 hp (463 kW) and a maximum torque of 1,000 Nm. For those who don’t know, the S65 AMG hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).
We expect the coupe to be a little quicker than the sedan and hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, while top speed will be the same. An S65 AMG Coupe 4MATIC will also be offered and this model will zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds, with a top speed limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).
In both versions, the V12 engine will be mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT Plus 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic transmission. Standard feature of the S65 AMG Coupe will include the AMG sports suspension based on Magic Body Control, as well as 20-inch AMG forged light-alloy wheels, ceramic, high-gloss polished.
The new coupe will be easily distinguished thanks to the V12 radiator grille with six twin louvres in high-gloss chrome, the ‘V12 Biturbo’ lettering on the wings and thanks to the AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome-plated, separate twin tailpipes.
