[Music] [Applause] the Mercedes s-class has always been the benchmark for refined German luxury it's elegant classy and incredibly comfortable but this is no normal s550 this is the s65 AMG when you step into a Mercedes s550 it's hard to imagine it could get any better than that but you'd be wrong
00:48
extremely wrong now the s550 starts at 96 thousand dollars which is of course a lot of money you want a better engine to put your car better steering feel you can upgrade to the s63 it's base price is 144 thousand dollars before any options but for those who want the ultimate the pinnacle of luxury that is where the s65 comes into play and this star starts in an absolutely ridiculous 227 thousand dollars how is it possible
01:21
that the s65 which is based on the s550 cost more than twice as much well that's what we're here to find out the good news is for those of you who don't want to spend much more than two hundred and twenty seven thousand dollars there's not that many options to be had as a matter of fact as a base model the S 65 is pretty much exactly what you want on the exterior the S 65 is almost exactly like the rest of the s-class range beautiful sweeping lines gorgeous LED headlights as well as lots of chrome but
01:54
there are distinct aspects that make it stand out from the more plebeian models for instance the front grille has dual slats instead of singular ones the air intakes in the front are more aggressive and for those who don't notice those small styling cues there is a massive v12 Biturbo badge on the side as well as of course the rear that says s65 AMG we've also got watt exhaust to let you know that this is a performance variant of the s-class under the hood is something incredibly special a handcrafted six liter Biturbo
02:25
v12 that produces a monstrous 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque that is almost twice the torque than a Ferrari four or five eight produces and that is a supercar and this is a luxury sedan and that power is put to the wheels and despite weighing as much as a small house the s65 AMG is capable of doing a 0 to 60 run in just 4.2 seconds you've got paddles mounted on the steering wheel although I imagine no
03:00
owners are ever going to be using them but when you go full throttle in the s65 Wow it lets you back into your seat shockingly hard but it does so in an incredibly smooth manner that's why they have the VY turbo v12 v12 have such a smooth characteristic it sounds really nice although it's pretty quiet in here but as you step on the gas its moseys along with ease there's no transmission jerking there's no weird engine response
03:31
everything is as smooth as riding on a cloud now the s550 feels like it couldn't ride any better than that but these seats the suspension the engine all work together in such harmony that it feels as smooth as it could possibly get in the front the s65 looks quite similar to a well equipped s550 of course we've got the beautiful rotating tweeters on the standard Burmaster high-end sound system if you haven't heard one of these in person I can't
04:02
explain how beautiful and how clear the sound system sounds it is absolutely the best on the market and in this car it's standard on the lower-end s-class models it will cost you nearly $7,000 we've got quilted leather the most comfortable seats in the world there's even lever on the headliner none of that crappy material that you're used to on normal cars and my favorite part is the idle you see analog clock in the middle of the dash for those of you who are unfamiliar
04:34
with IWC they are a luxury watchmaker who has been designing timepieces since 1868 perfect complement to the classy and luxurious X 65 in case you forgot that you just dropped two hundred and twenty-seven thousand dollars now that's the base model you can spend more than that although not by much it reminds you on the dash we've got a completely unique instrument cluster to the AMG models on this one says AMG on the left where the speedo goes up to 220 miles an hour in a luxury sedan now in
05:06
the tachometer it says v12 Biturbo none of that v8 biturbo peasant stuff of course we've got access to the rear sunshade by clicking the button to the left of the dual 12.3 inch screens you can control the fun shades of the rear occupants which you can also do from the rear as well the s65 is a car that is actually quite nice to drive but you truly want to experience it from the back of course being an S Class the S 65 has a multitude of technological
05:37
features we've got a heads-up display in front of me showing in very simple font the miles per hour and what gear I am in we of course have Distronic plus with Lane keep assist the car can drive itself within the lane it can slow itself down to avoid crashing into traffic and it can even accelerate itself from a standstill if you're in stop-and-go traffic we also have night vision which of course helps you see at night but it looks really cool in the centre twelve point three inch screen when you activate it via a button that's
06:09
quite hard to reach while you're driving you're able to see objects in the pitch-black that you wouldn't normally be able to see that combined with Distronic plus make sure that you don't hit any pedestrians when you're driving your car because you can't hear anything outside of the s65 we've got two different suspension settings sport and comfort but really it's more like cloud and slightly firmer cloud you do get quite a bit of body roll although in sport mode the air ride suspension actually mitigates body roll very well
06:39
for such a big vehicle we've also got multiple different driving for the transmission we've got Comfort Sport and manual let's put it into manual because this is probably the first time anyone has ever put in s65 AMG into manual mode the transmission shifts fairly quickly let's try downshift Wow actually very responsive and when you mash the gas whoa this thing is really really really quick in the cabin
07:11
you're completely isolated from the outside world a car just passed me I legitimately didn't hear anything at all but they did a great job of letting the engine just slightly penetrate into the cabin so you can hear that beautiful silky smooth sounding v12 do I wish it was a little louder sure but the majority of customers buying in at 65 would probably disagree with me even the headrests are like pillows at a ritz-carlton hotel this is the most comfortable driving experience short of
07:42
a rolls-royce ghost or phantom that you can get and may I remind you this is half the price of a rolls-royce phantom and looks almost as cool this would not be a proper review without experiencing the backseat so I'm going to pull over hop back there and check out what it's like to be a royal passenger in the s65 the rear of the s65 is absolutely the place to be I just rested my head against these pillows for the first time and this is the softest material I've ever felt in any car they of course are
08:13
heated and cooled they recline if you're in the passenger side seat you can move the front passenger out of the way so that you can almost completely lie down they also massage you for $2,000 you can get rid of the center seat to give you a throne-like experience you can fold out center tray tables to eat expensive food count your money catch your tears as you cry about the taxes you just paid but that's okay because you can also get a refrigerator back here for Dom pair and yon so you can drink your sorrows away
08:45
as well we've also got entertainment screens for the left and right rear passenger you can also control the climate as well and you can operate the rear sunshade that is ridiculous well there you go ladies and gentlemen if you want the pinnacle of luxury and don't want to shell out $400,000 for a rolls-royce look no further than the s65 AMG thank you so much to a mirror from EAG link in the description below to their dealership make sure to check it out give them some love for providing this car hope you enjoyed this video
