All that comes to mind, when someone says Mercedes Benz S Class, is limitless luxuries, generous amount of comfort and of course the ultimate styling which apparently comes natural to the brand as well as to the vehicles that share their names with it. What does not seems so obvious, while talking about the S Class lineup is a great deal of power. That is exactly when the Mercedes Benz S65 AMG steps in to leave all in awe. The SUV combines with the limitless luxury, style and comfort an equal sum of power. As huge as it can get, the Mercedes Benz S65 AMG, in practice, delivers a whopping 621 horsepower. As it was not enough in itself, the SUV is powered by a 12 cylinder twin turbocharged engine. With the class and styling of a true Mercedes S class and the power of God, what more can anybody ask for from the 2015 Mercedes Benz S65 AMG.
Hidden under the hood of this grand vehicle, is a 6.0 liter twin turbocharged V-12 grunt. It is basically like Mercedes S550 taken to a darker, more powerful level of mightiness. There are no significant changes in the 12 cylinder engine from the previous generation of the Mercedes Benz S65. The huge numbers see no stopping for the 2015 Mercedes Benz S65 AMG, as, along with the V-12 engine that produces a mighty 621 horsepower, it also produces a massive amount of torque that sums up at 738 pound feet. The transmission that backs up the amazingly powerful engine is AMG’s seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission which s anticipated to dramatically enhance the shift responses. The earlier generation of the S65 sported a seven speed torque converter automatic transmission.
The tremendously engine is capable of cruising up the s65 AMG to 60 mph from rest in a sprint time of merely 4.2 seconds. However, this is the claimed value by the brand. The calculated value of the top speed the vehicle can reach comes out to be about 155 mph. The brand, however, claims that a few extra additions and changes the 2015 Mercedes Benz AMG can attain a top speed of an impressive 200 mph.
The 2015 Mercedes Benz S65 AMG is a proud sportier of the brand’s Magic Body Control feature. Because of being real wheel driven, the S65’s architecture allows the Active Body Control Suspension. The feature is essentially needed for the vehicle to have magic Body Control.
The interiors of the 2015 S65 hold on to the previous generation. As sumptuous and comforting it can get, the 2015 Mercedes Benz S65 AMG doesn’t fail on being the absolutely luxurious vehicle, truly Mercedes.
The 2015 S65 faces a fair amount of competition from similar SUVs like the BMW’s 760 or Audi’s S8 or as for that matter, even the Bentley’s Flying Spur. All the vehicles sport comparably powerful engines. But the 2015 Mercedes Benz S65 AMG takes precedence over the other because of being absolutely stylish and absolutely Mercedes.
What else can a SUV intended for off road purposes have, besides an insanely powerful engine and an impeccable strong body? Six wheels, maybe? Ask Mercedes the same question, and you will get a ‘yes’ as your answer! Mercedes has introduced a 6 x 6 SUV, which has been welcomed to the SUV world very warmly by SUV lovers as well as critics. Any SUV lover would love the unique 6-wheeled beast once he or she acknowledges the advantages that the vehicle possesses. Accompanied by a crazier than ever engine, this beast can deliver flawless performance in almost every terrain that you can think of!
They named it Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6. We think that this is a pretty cool name for such a monstrous vehicle. Anyway, needless to say, the G63 AMG is perhaps the best off road SUV that has ever been produced. It might even end, and of course, conquer the battle of the best off road SUV once and for all. However, being an off road vehicle doesn’t make it a bad on road choice. Take your monster out of your garage and go on a cruise on a highway. You might turn quite a number of eyes towards yourself. Maybe more than that you will possibly be able to pull off with a Lamborghini!
We mentioned an insanely powerful engine above. What other adjective would you use for a twin-turbocharged 5500cc V8 engine? Yes, you read it right. Capable of providing the six wheels with a power of around 536 horsepower, the engine thrusts the machine from rest to a speed of 62 miles an hour (100 kilometres per hour) with a flabbergasting acceleration in barely six seconds! Speaking of the highest attainable speed, the G63 AMG can touch the mark of 100 miles per hour (160 kilometres per hour). It might seem less if you go on comparing statistics with Lamborghinis or Porsches, but don’t skip on the fact that these supercars don’t have to carry a 3.8 tonne machine on six wheels. Also, put your Porsche off road and its half dead. The G63 AMG wouldn’t lose traction on any possible surface!
Another monstrosity that the G63 AMG boasts of is the size of the wheels. The beast comes with mammoth sized 37 inch wheels. Stuck in traffic? Consider crushing the tiny vehicles in front of you! The clearance from the ground is also quite large, and you will be able to confront any obstacles while driving off road!
Amazing things lose their charm if present in large numbers, and Mercedes knows it. Henceforth, only 30 or so models of the G63 AMG will be made. If you are lucky, and yes, rich enough to ever lay your hands upon the beast, you might be one of the lucky people who will ever get the chance to feel the monstrosity that Mercedes has offered. It will be quite interesting to see how other SUV makers respond! What if the idea of an 8 x 8 SUV comes up next? Only time will tell.
