So much more than a car

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Mercedes-Benz has in­tro­duced the new S65 AMG Coupé. Sell­ing for over R3 mil­lion, this bench­mark in mo­tor­ing has a V12 that ac­cel­er­ates the big car from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,1 seconds, thanks to peak power of 463 kW and max­i­mum torque of 1 000 New­ton me­tres be­tween 4 800-5 400 rpm. Another in­no­va­tion is the 78 Ah lithium-Ion bat­tery that re­places both the starter bat­tery and the backup bat­tery to save over 20 kg in weight. At this price, the car parks it­self, stops au­to­mat­i­cally for pedes­tri­ans, steers it­self to stay in the mid­dle of the lane, has 3D sur­round sound, and ev­ery­thing that can be, is wrapped in nappa leather.
