The S65 AMG is the go-faster version of the go-faster version of an already fast car! While the S63 AMG which debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 engine, the S65 gets its power from an AMG tuned 6.0-liter Bi-Turbo V12.

This engine produces 630 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque, enough to accelerate the S65 from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and give it an electronically limited top-speed of 250 km/h.
