A new video with the impressive Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is showing the luxury cruiser accelerate from 0 to 257 km/h (160 mph).
The hottest version of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class generation, the S65 AMG, is the subject to a new video which is quite different than what we are used to. The powerful luxury cruiser has been taken from 0 to 257 km/h (160 mph) and this has been caught on camera. The speedometer was showing 160 mph, or 257 km/h, but the car is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) so this was its real speed.
The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG has been officially unveiled just a few months ago and the model is powered by a 6.0 liter V12 twin turbo engine. The unit is producing a total output of 630 HP (463 kW) between 4,800 and 5,400 rpm and it has a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft), between 2,300 and 4,300 rpm. Power is sent to the wheels through a 7-speed 7G TRONIC transmission which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.3 seconds and to reach the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
