Mercedes-Benz had a lot to show at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and among them was this, the Mercedes-AMG S65 Final Edition, the luxury performance that wrote the final page of the V12 S-Class. As you know, we don’t feature every damn thing and we most certainly don’t feature every damn car. We only do those that are special, stylish and you know, that catches eyes. The Mercedes-AMG S65 Final Edition is one of the special ride we have to talk about.
The high-gloss obsidian black metallic paint finish, coupled with the S class sleek lines and massive 20-inch forged multi-spoke wheels, alone make this a seriously drool-worthy ride. The exterior further features air inlet grilles in unique matter bronze finish, an AMG crest on the C-pillar as mark of the sedan’s special status and rounding up with high-gloss black tailpipe.
On the inside, it has an exclusive black Nappa leather upholstery with copper-colored contrasting stitching, carbon fiber trim elements with fine copper-colored threads, floor mats with copper-colored contrasts, an AMG Edition insert on the steering wheel, pre-configured ambient light in copper color, and in the center console, the editor badge “1 of 130”, reaffirming its limited edition status.
The unique one-off treatment extends to the engine compartment with the engine fitter’s badge presented in a special design and finished in exclusive black instead of the usual silver. Speaking of the engine compartment, it is where you will find a 6.0L V12 Biturbo engine that develops 621 horses and a peak torque 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm!) at 2,300-4,300 rpm.
In the area of equipment, it has the whole works, including the MAGIC SKY CONTROL panoramic, First Class rear suite with individual seats, extended-length luxury console comprising of temperature-controlled cup holders(!), up to 12 electric motors on each seat for precise seat position, and an Executive seat on the rear passenger side that boasts a leg rest and backrest adjustment of up to 43.5 degrees for an ideal resting position – that’s if you can restraint the exhilaration as your chauffeur guns this baby towards its top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).
Limited to just 130 examples world-wide, each Mercedes-AMG S65 Final Edition will come with a tailor-made AMG Indoor Car Cover emblazoned with the lettering “AMG S 65 FINAL EDITION” in a color to match the edition. Sweet. The Mercedes-AMG S65 Final Edition is not the most powerful luxury sedan, nor is the fastest or quickest, but damn, you can’t deny the it does have a good mix of luxury and performance, and the obsidian black, paired to the copper accents, really had us at hello.
Neither the price and availability are known, but if we may, may we suggest you get in touch with your favorite Mercedes-Benz agent and start digging for more details because, you know, 130 units aren’t exactly a lot to go round in the world packed with richie rich.
