Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition displayed in Geneva to bid adieu to the legendary AMG V12
At the ongoing 2019 Geneva Motor Show Mercedes-AMG has introduced the S 65 Final Edition. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition is a tribute to the company’s legendary flagship 6.0 litre twin-turbocharged V12 motor, which Mercedes is about to retire soon.
The Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition which as its name suggests is the last model to be equipped by the iconic power monster 6.0L V12 engine. The 2019 S 65 Final Edition is a highly exclusive limited edition model, as only 130 units of the car will be offered across all the global markets.
The S 65 Final Edition model offers all the premium features that the flagship S-Class saloon has to offer, as part of its standard package. The extensive features list of the car includes innovative and luxurious equipments such as the Magic Sky Control panoramic roof, temperature controlled cup-holders and the First Class rear suite that offers individual rear seats and an extended business console.
When the exterior visual appeal is concerned, the Stuttgart based luxury auto giant has also endowed some subtle updates on the 2019 Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition. The exterior cosmetic updates consists of only special paint and finish, which includes a special obsidian black exterior colour, which will be the only paint option for this special, limited edition model. The car also flaunts matt bronze accents on the air inlets, on the side-skirts and also on the sporty 20 inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. For the tail pipes, the company has chosen a classy gloss black finish.
The classy and sporty colour scheme continues on the cabin of the 65 Final Edition as well. The engine is now finished in black. The interiors flaunt all-black premium nappa leather upholstery along with contrast stitching in copper. The copper colour can also be found in the ambient lighting system of the car along with other subtle unique elements including the numbered plaque.;
However, the real charm of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition of course lies under its skin. At its heart the S 65 Final Edition comes packed with the celebrated 6 liter V12 mill that has the capability to churn out a massive 630 PS of peak power and a humongous 1,000 Nm of top torque. The mammoth generated power gets handled by the previous generation 7 speed Mercedes torque convertor transmission system. The S 65 has the ability to reach the speed level of 100 kmph from a standstill position in just 4.2s, and offers a top speed of 250 km per hour. The top speed of the luxury sedan can be further increased to 300 km per hour with the help of the AMG driver's package, which the company is offering as a standard feature on the Final Edition.
The 6L V12 engine has been part of Mercedes-Benz’s powerful range for over 18 years and will be taking its leave soon. While the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition will mark the end of the S 65, the engine will continue to be offered for some more time on the bespoke Maybach S650, before it finally bids adieu.
