The style change at Mercedes-Benz is in full speed, and also the S-class cabriolet could be its best symptom. Currently, Daimler has crowned exactly what is possibly the most lovely convertible on the marketplace with a brand-new top-of-the-line variation powered by the twin-turbocharged AMG 6.0-liter V-12.
The AMG S65 cabriolet‘s twin-turbo V-12 (code M279), said to be at 621 horsepower and also 738 lb-ft of torque, holds a slight advantage over the AMG S63 cabriolet, which is powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 that produces 577 horsepower and also is slightly much less torquey at 664 lb-ft. However, the S65 will not be the fastest vehicle among its relatives. The S63 is lighter and also, unlike the S65, has all-wheel drive, permitting it to transform even more power right into propulsion instead of smoke as well as tire marks. The S65 convertible could reach 60 miles per hour in an asserted 4.0 seconds, while leading rate is controlled at 186 mph. Real-life gas economic climate should hover around 15 mpg– okay, considering its efficiency.
To obtain the full result, Daimler suggests you order your S65 in one of the darker color tones. You would not desire any individual mistaking your S65 for a plain S63? (Nevertheless, if the cabriolet adheres to the convention of the $230,900 S65 coupe, it will certainly be a complete $70,000 dearer compared to its S63 sibling.)
