2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Gets AMG Treatment
Meet the New S65 AMG Coupe
Let's skip right to the heart of the matter here: The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe will move from the top of the range to over the top for the new selling season, thanks to the installation of a 6.0-liter, biturbo V12 engine from the performance experts of AMG—MB's long-time engineering partners.
The new powerplant will pour out 621 hp and 738 lb.-ft. of torque in the freshly minted S65 AMG Coupe, enabling drivers to sprint from 0-60 in 4 seconds and then keep running right up to an electronically limited 186 mph. Helping drivers manage that kind of output is an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission, and while that's obviously an automatic, it does offer three shifting modes for "Controlled Efficiency," "Sport" driving and "Manual" operation.
