Posted Date: 1/26/05
Staring at another 11 months or so of selling the current, outgoing S-Class, Mercedes-Benz will draw on some of our favorite selling tools—major horsepower and maximum performance in the S65 AMG—to keep S-Class sales perking until the next-generation 2006 model arrives next January.
The S65 makes its North American debut at the Chicago auto show in February, and goes on sale in March starting at $170,000. The S65 is powered by a hand-assembled 6.0-liter, 604-hp, 738-lb-ft twin-turbo V12 good for 0-to-60-mph times of 4.2 seconds.
