The Mercedes AMG 65 has opened up a new breed of cars in which the staggering power and torque is overawing. Looks like the Germans put a stop to enhancing power in small notches to one big leap that silenced all car manufacturers. Even going by the spectacular AMG series, the S 65 is a stand alone performer. A spectacular twin turbo charged V 12 6L engine and a staggering 1000Nm limited torque which is double that of a BMW M5 makes this monster the ultimate in driving experience. The complete car, starting from the grill nose to the tail exhaust system is beefed up to handle this enormous power and torque. The chassis, wheels, brakes, suspension and the five speed automatic transmission have all undergone transformation to generate this lovable creature on wheels. This is the ultimate sedan whose MSRP of $210,900 is staggering, but worth every dollar.
