S 65 AMG and SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION in Tokyo and Los Angeles
Affalterbach/Tokyo/Los Angeles – Two motor shows, two new AMG high-performance vehicles: Mercedes-AMG is presenting the S 65 AMG and the SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION simultaneously at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the Tokyo Motor Show (both from 20 November to 1 December 2013).
Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH says “The two new AMG high-performance vehicles represent the spectacular next level for our exciting model array. The S 65 AMG stands for maximum exclusiveness and the unparalleled dynamism of a V12. With the SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION we are showing an ultimate, particularly attractive variant of our super sports car.”
Twelve cylinders, biturbocharging, an output of 463 kW (630 hp) and torque of 1000 Nm – the new Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG sets new standards. These figures enable the S 65 AMG to outperform all other models in its segment. This superiority is highlighted by the car’s performance: the S 65 AMG accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h/155 mph (electronically limited).
Compared with the predecessor, fuel consumption has been reduced by 2.4 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC, combined). With fuel consumption of 11.9 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined), the new S 65 AMG is the world’s most fuel-efficient V12 high-performance saloon in terms of power and torque. The range-topping 12-cylinder model already meets the requirements of the EU6 emissions standard, which is not due to come into force until 2015.
Saving the best for last: SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION
The SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION brings an impressive era to an end. The FINAL EDITION model, built in a limited run of just 350 units, represents the last opportunity for customers to order a SLS AMG – while at the same time reflecting the unrivalled success story and unique scope offered by the first vehicle to be completely built by Mercedes-AMG. The super sports car, with its 435 kW (591 hp) AMG 6.3-litre V8 front-mid engine, offers an exciting combination of truly exceptional design and equipment features. Ever since it was presented in 2009 the SLS AMG has been an icon of the Mercedes-Benz brand and is highly sought-after around the world. Thanks to the wide variety of models – from a gullwing model to the roadster, GT, the Page 4 Black Series, an electric drive and its success in motorsport as the GT3 variant – the SLS AMG has become ever more attractive and is now one of the legendary dream cars from the brand with the star.
