Mercedes-AMG is proud to introduce the V12-powered S65 Cabriolet, representing the latest member to join the ever growing S-Class family.
Despite the ongoing downsizing trend, Daimler isn’t willing to let the massive V12 go and the company will actually boost production of the 6.0-liter unit. Now, the bi-turbo motor has found a new home as Mercedes-AMG is launching the S65 Cabriolet that will offer a mighty 621 hp (463 kW) and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque.
It’s enough punch to grant the large open-top model with a sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds and an electronically-governed top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). There’s an optional AMG Driver’s Package that will bump maximum velocity to a restricted 186 mph (300 km/h).
As you would expect from a V12-powered Mercedes, the S65 Cabriolet comes exclusively with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC gearbox. It sends power to a set of elegant multi-spoke 20-inch forged wheels featuring a ceramic high-sheen finish and wrapped in 255/40 ZR 20 front and 285/35 ZR 20 rear tires.
Being a cabriolet from Mercedes, the model has the usual AIRCAP wind protection system and the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system. It also boasts heated armrests, an intelligent climate control system and a three-layered acoustic fabric roof available in four colors.
Mercedes-AMG will start taking orders from April 4 next year before the car will begin hitting dealerships in May, so deliveries should kick off in time for the summer.
