A 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG was put through its paces in a 0-160 mph (0-257 km/h) sprint.

Introduced in November last year, the S65 AMG hasn’t received the media exposure it deserves but now the V12-powered super sedan was tested by Ausfahrt.tv in a sprint from standstill until the electronic limiter kicked it. Its twin-turbo 6.0-liter generates 630 PS (463 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4.3 seconds. The digital speedometer showed 160 mph (257 km/h) but in reality the car was doing 155 mph (250 km/h).

The same twelve cylinder engine is expected to power the S65 AMG Coupe which will reportedly be unveiled next month. In addition, AMG will also provide the V12 motor for the longer wheelbase S65 AMG Maybach planned for later this year. The even longer Pullman will likely be offered with the same motor and a 2+2+2 seating arrangement once it will come out probably in 2015.
