11. 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 L – Heavily Dynamic
The new Mercedes S-Class was unveiled in 2014. This car is well-known for its stunning interior, with a gorgeous design and sleek finish.
The car is fitted with a biturbo, 6.0L V12 engine, which produces a huge torque peak of 738lb-ft. For the record, it’s actually the engine Pagani uses in their Huayra. This is a very unique engine, with 3 valves per cylinder. The car also features a ”magic control” which ”reads” the road and erases any of the asphalt’s imperfections. It produce a whopping 630hp, which allow the heavy (2,250kg) vehicle to reach 62mph in only 4.3 seconds, which is 0.1 faster than the 585hp S63, even if this one has all-wheel drive and a short wheel base.
Yes, the S65 L is only rear-wheel drive. The AMG is only available with a 7-speed automatic transmission. And, in a very unique fact for a German sedan, the car isn’t electronically limited to 155mph, which results in a top speed of 190 mph – in a great luxury car on your heated seat. The car is also fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, in order to make the 62-0 as quick as the 0-62.
Even if the car’s capabilities are limited by permanent electronics aids, this car remains one of the best performance limos on the market.
