Report: Mercedes-Benz to possibly reveal S65 AMG Coupe this summer

A Mercedes-Benz enthusiast blog reports that the Silver Arrow will be continuing the legacy of its most powerful flagship, which would be none other than the S65 AMG Coupe.

According to said report, the new S65 AMG coupe, much like the CL65 AMG of last, will receive the same insanely potent 6.0L V12 as the S65 AMG sedan. This mill churns out 630hp and 737 lb-ft of twist. There was no specification as to whether or not the new S65 AMG coupe will receive 4MATIC all-wheel drive to improve grip, like the lesser V8-powered S63 AMG of both types more recently.

Either way, a 0-62 mph time of roughly 4.3 seconds is expected for a top sprint electronically limited to 155 mph. Channeling that power to the rear wheels is AMG’s traditional 7G-TRONIC Speedshift Plus transmission. AMG carbon ceramic brakes will also be made optional.
