Possessing a 6.0 litre bi-turbo V12 engine and driving dynamics to challenge the most outlandish supercars, as well as unparalleled refinement and interior luxury, the S65 AMG L is the most exclusive version of the model already considered by many to be “the best car in the world”.
Contact the Lancaster Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Chelmsford, Colchester, Ipswich, Lakeside (Thurrock) or Southend to make further enquiries about the S65 AMG L, or to book a test drive.
The face of the S65 AMG is instantly recognisable as a Mercedes S-Class, but rendered more attractive still by a front-apron with high-gloss chrome detailing. 20” multi-spoke forged alloy wheels are standard, and come with the option of high-performance ceramic brakes from the AMG engineers at Affalterbach. Chrome also features in the detailing of the side sills and the car’s rear apron, accentuating its elite character. At 3165mm, the S63 AMG L’s wheelbase results in effectively limitless legroom for passengers in the front or rear, as well as 510 litres of boot capacity. Numerous trim and upholstery options are available, with the softest nappa leather accompanied by chrome, aluminium, and high-gloss lacquer detailing.
An enormous range of active safety features make the S65 AMG L one of the safest vehicles on the road.
In addition to a variety of stability-enhancing features such as Traction Control and four-wheel ABS, the car has the DISTRONIC PLUS system (which keeps it a safe distance from vehicles in front) and Brake Assist (which mitigates the impact of collisions by automatically depressing the brake pedal when one is imminent) among its standard features.
If the S65 AMG L is involved in an accident, the occupants will find themselves well-protected by a minimum of eight bags and the PRE-SAFE® belt tensioning system, which reduces pressure on the chest during a collision.
If your mobile phone is connected to the car’s interface it will send GPS positional data to the manufacturer’s emergency call centre in the moments following an accident.
The mighty 6.0 litre V12 petrol engine delivers 630hp and maximum torque of 1000Nm between 2300-4300rpm.
The effect, even on a vehicle weighing an ample 2250kg, is predictable; the S65 AMG L reaches 62mph from a standing start in just 4.3 seconds, and can achieve an electronically limited top speed of 155mph.
The extraordinarily adaptable Magic Body Control air suspension tackles the worst surfaces with ease, whilst three driving modes – Controlled Efficiency (C), Sport (S), and Manual (M) – allow you to adjust the response of the Speedshift seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Inside, as you would expect, the S65 AMG L provides a vast selection of technology, resulting in matchless usability and comfort.
From DVD players to a 12-speaker Burmester® surround system, the car’s cabin can truly be made a home away from home.
The COMAND Online system gives occupants access to a wide range of online and offline communications, information and entertainment functions, and is easily operated through a user-friendly touchpad and high-definition 12.3” screen.
