AMG S65 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The S 65 AMG comes with a 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine, which delivers maximum power of 450 kW/612 hp. Its quick and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds.

Brakes & Wheels

Brakes: don’t worry, you’ll be able to stop given the S 65 AMG comes with the ADAPTIVE BRAKE system, which is a high-performance braking system that provides optimum creep strength, deceleration and sensitivity. The front axle features a double floating brake caliper. This exclusive technology combines the advantages of a sliding-caliper disc brake – reduced heat transfer to the brake fluid and clear advantages in terms of comfort thanks to the brake lining guide mechanism – with the efficiency of an extra large fixed caliper brake.

Wheels: the S 65 AMG comes with 20-inch forged wheels painted in titanium grey with a mirror finish and fitted with 255/35 (front) and 275/35 (rear) tires.

Suspension

The AMG sports suspension based on Active Body Control (ABC) provides crosswind stabilization as standard equipment for the first time. ABC compensates against the effect of crosswinds by adjusting the wheel load distribution within milliseconds, using the yaw-rate and lateral acceleration sensors of the ESPElectronic Stability Program. The Torque Vectoring Brake, now part of the standard equipment package, is an additional feature of the ESP Electronic Stability Program and not only improves responsiveness but also active handling safety, which is particularly noticeable in critical conditions. When cornering, brief direct application of the Torque Vectoring Brakes effect the vehicle’s inner rear wheel so that the saloon corners precisely and under control at all times.

Also, note the more pronounced arrow-shaped radiator grille; twin chrome-plated louvers in the case of the S 65 AMG as shown in the AMG photo gallery below. Available in June 2009.
