We’;re still a couple of weeks away from the public debut of the new Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe at the rapidly-approaching New York Car Demonstrate, but currently we’;re obtaining word of an even far more powerful version in the performs. That, of course, would be the S65 AMG Coupe – the twelve-cylinder model of the newest S-Class Coupe, 2-door counterpart to the S65 AMG sedan and substitute for the outgoing CL65 AMG.
Like the 4-door edition rolled out back in November, the S65 AMG Coupe would be distinguished from significantly less powerful automobiles (which, lets encounter it, is just about everything) principally by its engine: a enormous, 6.-liter twin-turbo V12 that produces 621 horsepower, 738 pound-feet of torque and cares as significantly about international warming as an oil-shipping mega-tanker.
Since Merc’;s 4Matic all-wheel drive program cannot take care of that a lot torque, the ne plus ultra coupe would (like the S65 sedan but unlike the S63 coupe) be provided only in rear-drive form. That means it will have that significantly more difficulties acquiring the energy down to the street, but given that the Magic Body Handle suspension is similarly incompatible with 4Matic, the flagship coupe will get that trick suspension.
According to firm insider site Mercedes-Benz Passion, when the S65 AMG Coupe will be rolled out in July, Mercedes will also start providing the ‘lesser’; S63 coupe (with its relatively paltry 577 hp and 664 lb-ft) in rear-drive/active suspension form as nicely, giving customers in search of the greatest performance luxury coupe an additional selection to ponder as they velocity down the Autobahn.
