2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet
The Mercedes-AMG S65 cabriolet meet the bill nicely, a four-place convertible with a v-12 and a quarter-million-dollar value label. The S65 dreadnought-class convertible is 198.6 inches long, about eight inches longer than a Bentley Continental GT convertible. While the S65 coupe is an axenic shot of highly civilized androgen, the convertible roof adds a gender-bending grade. If Ziggy romanticism flew in present, they’d move one of these for him.
It’s got 621 horsepower, churns out 738 lb-ft of torque, lightnings to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and clears the quarter-mile in 12.3 at 120 mph. Moving the solace and bowels to use, I proceeded to a beautiful increase municipality. I were just long enough to fill the tank (which the V-12 sucks adust to the sound of 16 mpg).
The S65 cabriolet handles like a S-class. Which is to say that the AMG care does not imbue it with the convulsive, rip-roaring and tetchy attribute of the Mercdes-AMG C63. Removing the roof from the coupe does, however, cause a bit more malleability than one might expect from Stuttgart’s most popular enterprises of slope vaults. We moved 0.91 g on the skidpad, acceptable than the 0.88 g we saw with a Mercedes-Benz S550 cabriolet, although it doesn’t equal the 0.94 g we got from the Dodge Charger Hellcat.
The creaseless action of the 12-hole block under the S65’s hood force us ever forward, the star immersing debased off the port side. Even with the wind beating through the compartment, Mercedes’ Aircap anti-striking system doesn’t work as well here as it did on the E-class droptop, the strong Burmester sound system reliably revolved the sound up, around and through me.
