Profile

For decades, the Mercedes S-Class has held the unofficial title of 'Worlds best car'. But the competition have been catching up, helped by a period of 'un-Mercedes' like poor build quality that tainted the brand back in the early 2000's. However the latest W221 version S65 AMG with it's combination of modern looks, technological goodies and ballistic performance puts this super saloon right back to the top of the tree.

The twin turbo V12 produces a monumental 612bhp that moves the 2-ton S65 to 60mph in just 4 seconds on it's way to a (de-restricted) 200mph max. Occupants are treated to a high quality cabin with just about every gadget you can think of and more! How does night vision assist grab you?
