2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 exists only for customers who want the best in luxury regardless of cost

A lot of people question why there is even a 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65, firstly because it costs a lot more than the S63 sedan ($82,500 more) and yet, it is 0.7 second slower when sprinting from zero to 60 miles per hour. Both cars not only have similar top speeds, but they both offer the same options and features. In other words, we do not clearly see why the S65 should cost a lot more than the S63. We don’t see it both on paper, and when looking at it. Therefore, paying for so much more is quite irrational. But I guess that’s why its customers would want this model.

Nick Martin, AMG Product Manager at Mercedes-Benz, says that there will always be someone who prefers a 12-cylinder, and that they will buy the ultimate in performance because that’s their character.

The S65 is one of the few models out there that are still offered with a V12 engine, hence making it very exclusive. And of all Mercedes models, this is the only one with the S-Class powertrain that has been unchanged for the 2018 model year. Martin continues to say that the S65 has a niche market, and these people buy it not for logical reasons but because it is considered the best model in the dealership, saying that “the S65 exists because there is no S75”.

2018 Mercedes-Benz S560, S63 and S65 AMG Cabriolet get a facelift ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show

Mercedes-Benz is introducing the face-lifted 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet, along with the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. Official unveiling of the 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet is scheduled to happen a week from now at the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The introduction of the updated S-Class Cabriolet was well-expected after Mercedes took the wraps off the face-lifted S-Class Sedan or Saloon earlier this year. Compared to its predecessor, the new S-Class Sedan offers a new appearance, new dynamic feeling and new levels of comfort and convenience. This is thanks to a number of changes like new front and rear fascias and new grille design as well as new engines and a host of innovative technologies.

Just as expected, the updated 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet Facelift features more or less the same changes as that made on the 2018 S-Class Saloon. For instance, the new S-Class Cabriolet comes with new or functionally extended driving assistance systems, the latest infotainment generation, integrated Energizing comfort control as well as a new generation of steering wheels. The S-Class Cabriolet also features a modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit.

2017 Frankfurt Preview: Brabus Rocket 900 Cabrio based on 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet is no doubt a powerful car, with a 621 horsepower engine under its hood. Despite its power, Brabus still decided that they'd push the S65's V12 engine even further. By doing so, they were able to extract an additional 267 horsepower, giving it a total of 888 horsepower (662 kilowatts) available from 5,500 rpm. Naturally, torque is also increased to 1,106 pound-feet (1,500 Nm) at 4,200 rpm from only 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton metres). To preserve reliability, it had to be electronically capped to 885 pound feet (1,200 Nm).

With that much power hike, Brabus didn't just have to do some software revision, but they also had to increase engine displacement from 6.0 to 6.3 liters and enlarge the cylinder bores. Exhaust manifolds and larger turbochargers had to be installed too. The new control system takes care of cooling and stabilizing the car, making it work in the most efficient way while ensuring you get a smooth V12 cabriolet.

Brabus modified a seven-speed automatic transmission that works with the immense power of the V12, giving power to the rear wheels. It has been given a custom limited-slip differential, new intake manifold, bigger down pipes, and a high-performance exhaust that completes the hardware upgrades.

Pics: Tiger Woods’ 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG shows damage on driver side

Celebrated golfer Tiger Woods is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. On Memorial Day, various news reports disclosed that Woods was arrested under suspicion for driving under the influence. Specifically, police found him sleeping on the steering wheel and was arrested for the DUI.

While this may once again dent Woods' reputation, it comes as a relief that nothing worse happened. His 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is altogether a different story. Though rather sketchy, the photos revealed that there were flat tires with the sidewalls torn. There were even some significant tweaks that can be seen on the wheels, which themselves clearly look dirty.

According to a report by the Police Department of Jupiter, Florida, the driver side also showed some damage. Looking at the photos though, the rather obvious damages look to be the loosened fender liner on the model's front wheel well. In addition, it appears that the front fascia has been dislodged. Given the fact that the driver side's front and rear wheels reveal some damage, one explanation could be that Woods may possibly have clipped something.

BRABUS has revealed its latest offering with the BRABUS ROCKET 900 Coupe. This 2+2-seater supercar can reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h (217 mph). The powerful speed is all due to the twin-turbo 6.3-liter increased-displacement V2 engine which can also deliver power of 662 kW / 900 HP (887 bhp) with maximum torque at 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft).

The basis for this particular model was the Mercedes-AMG S65 Coupe. Its performance figures more than enough proof of why supercars from BRABUS continue to be considered as part of the elite for almost forty years now. High performance is not the only thing that one can expect from this ROCKET 900 Coupe.

It also has that elegant yet sporty design with its carbon parts designed to improve aerodynamics. It comes with the high-tech forged 21-inch or 22-inch wheels and the classy interior.

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.

Brabus has unveiled one of its latest creations – the Brabus Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edition – at the Dubai International Motor Show 2015. Derived from the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, the Brabus Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edition pays homage to the desert state of Dubai, where Brabus operates a branch and a Flagship Store.

This Brabus Rocket 900 is laden with Brabus carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components as well as black BRABUS Monoblock F "Platinum Edition" 21-inch forged wheels adorned with gold pin striping. It features high-gloss black bodywork components while all its chrome parts were painted black.

As a high-performance premium sedan, it is only logical to view the Brabus Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edition as a machine that could travel at high speeds. To achieve that, this vehicle was assembled with parts and elements that help its aerodynamics.

We already knew that the all-new 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe will make its debut this summer, so it is not a surprise that the German manufacturer unveiled the new vehicle today. As expected, the new S65 AMG Coupe is powered by the same engine found on the S65 AMG Sedan, which means it uses a 6.0-liter V12 engine that generates 630 hp (463 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.

As a result, the S65 AMG Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. Fuel consumption is 11.9 litres per 100 km as per NEDC combined, while CO2 emissions are 279 g/km.

The engine is mated to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic that delivers the power to the rear wheels and offers three driving modes - Controlled Efficiency (C), Sport (S) and Manual (M) – by pushing a button on the centre console. ECO Start/Stop function is also available and activated in Contolled Efficiency (C) mode.

[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).

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is here and promises to set a new standard in its segment. Powered by a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine developing an impressive 630 hp (463 kW) and a maximum torque of 1000 newton metres, the saloon hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).

Despite these numbers, fuel consumption has been reduced by 2.4 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC, combined), which means the S65 AMG needs only 11.9 litres per 100 km, making it the world's most fuel-efficient V12 high-performance saloon in terms of power and torque. Furthermore, the 12-cylinder model already meets the requirements of the EU6 emissions standard.

The engine obtaines all of these numbers also thanks to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic transmission.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG was spotted undisguised at a commercial shoot in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Minor differences were seen in comparison to the S63 AMG. Significant modifications include more chrome on the front grille, shiny mesh on the front bumper, various multi-spoke alloys together with the bold "V12 Biturbo" lettering.

It will use a 6.0-liter engine that delivers 630 HP (463 kW) and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. The 2014 S65 AMG is mated to a 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT gearbox, enabling it to move from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4 seconds. It’s expected to have a fuel efficiency rating of 20 mpg US (24.3 mpg UK or 11.6 liters / 100 km). Deliveries will start in March after its introduction at the L.A. Auto Show this November.

The brand-new S65 AMG flaunts its superior status not just with regards to its ingenuity, but also its design. The hedonistic purity that is standard of the Mercedes-Benz, with its legendary architecture and flowing silhouette, is integrated with dynamic components typical of AMG.

Earlier this month we presented you the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG but rumors regarding the more powerful S65 AMG are already starting to show up. As expected, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG will not receive the new twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 found on the S63 because it will stick with the 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine.

If the current S65 AMG delivers 621 hp, the 2014MY S65 AMG will receive a slight bump in output, probably around 630 hp and around 1,000 Nm of torque (737 lb-ft) as some sources mentioned. Still, the curb weight of the 2014 S65 AMG will be 200 pounds less than its predecessor.

We expect the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than four seconds. Regarding its debut, Car and Driver says that the S65 AMG will arrive in November at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, while deliveries will begin in March 2014.
