Mercedes-Benz to launch the new S65 AMG in 2014 image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is planning to launch the new S65 AMG sometimes next year, which should hit the market with a massive V12 engine.

The brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been already unveiled, just a few months ago, and the carmaker has also pulled the wraps off the S63 AMG, not too long ago. But besides the new S-Class Coupe, the S-Class Cabrio or the S-Class Pullman, the company is also planning to develop a high performance version of the luxury car. This will hit the market as the S65 AMG and it should be just what the doctor ordered for the brand.

While the current S63 AMG has a 5.5 liter V8 bi turbo engine under its hood, the upcoming S65 AMG should get the massive V12 engine. The total output should stand at approximately 630 HP and the peak torque will be at least 1,000 Nm. The unit will be mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT seven-speed automatic transmission, which will send power to the all-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint should take less than 4 seconds. The new S65 AMG might be unveiled during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
