And 1,000 Nm of torque

It was only two weeks ago when Mercedes-Benz introduced the 2014 S63 AMG and now rumors about a more powerful S65 AMG version have surfaced.

Mercedes-Benz Passion blog is reporting the S65 AMG will be available on order as early as January 2014. It won't come with the S63 AMG's V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine as Mercedes-Benz plans to stick the mighty V12 (probably a 6.0-liter) inside its most powerful S-Class ever. How powerful? The same source reports a 630 HP (463 kW) output with no less than 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine will allegedly be linked to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed gearbox and enable the high-performance luxury sedan to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in four seconds. Not like it matters a lot in such a car, but fuel consumption is estimated at 11.6 liters / 100 km (20 mpg US or 24.3 mpg UK).

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is rumored to get the Magic Body Control once deliveries commence in March. As a reminder, the system has a stereo camera mounted within the windscreen which scans the road ahead and automatically modifies suspension damping to multiple or individual wheels within a fraction of a seconds.

24mpg? Not bad for a car that has a angry volcano AMG V12 under the bonnet. I just love AMG merc's, i worship every skid marks on the road, I do believe mercedes makes the best V12 fitted to any car

Mercedes' V12 is a dinosaur. Its sohc and doesnt even have vvt. They just boost the absolute s*** out of it, nothing difficult there... BMW makes the best "normal" 12 in the segment. Its found in the 760, Ghost and Wraith.

I think you are both wrong... I think the best V12 out there is the ferrari F12 V12... in NA form, the 6.3 liter engine produces way more hp than either the merc or bmw... 740hp form a NA engine is crazy... do not make me start to talk about the sound it makes

Except, Ferrari's V12 literally wont go 50K miles without needing a rebuild...which will run you the price of a new GTI.
