When you first approach the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG luxury sedan the first thing you cannot help but notice is the V-12 BITURBO Badge on the rear of the S65's fender and the twin quad-oval tailpipes just underneath. This just gives you a hint of what is to come. Visually Mercedes haven't changed that much for the 2012 S65 AMG and in typical Mercedes style you have to look hard to find them. On the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG luxury sedan they have added some new exterior LED lighting features with bright white daytime running lights now standard. The S65 AMG is very sleek and with not a single sharp edge in sight, this vehicle just oozes luxury even before you get in. A nice touch is the side mirrors - when they are folded they are so snug and close to the side of the car that they don't stick out at all.

Once you open the smooth sliding doors and get in you are transformed into your own little luxurious world. For a luxury sedan even though it is the sporty version, the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG really doesn't give the impression from the inside that you could comfortably go to a speed of 186 mph whilst sitting in a leather seat that gives you four different styles of massage while simultaneously adjusting to suit the contours of your body. On the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG luxury sedan, every switch is conveniently within reach and despite the high level of automation you can override all the controls at the flick of a switch. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG luxury sedan is surprisingly spacious and during the review it was interesting to find that on the S65 AMG, the central video portion of the dashboard even includes a special measure for lap times.

On the road is really where the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG luxury sedan comes into its own - the enormous power of the 6 liter twin turbo V12 will even wheel-spin at 70mph if you remove the traction control and does 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG's acceleration has to be felt to be believed giving proof to why the Mercedes engineers decided to put a self adjusting headrest to cushion your head for intense acceleration. One tip, when driving at speed is to keep the anti-skid feature turned on to keep perfect control. When you are treating it more like a sedan than a rocket on wheels the ride is smooth and effortless. Overall in review the Mercedes S65 AMG luxury sedan is a fabulous hell on wheels.
