With over 700 lb-ft of torque on tap, the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG could very well be capable of bending time, which could explain why the German automaker has waited a couple of months to reveal the full details on its pair of flagship performance luxury sedans. Unveiled in April at the Shanghai motor show, the pair of AMG-tuned luxury vehicles offer either a 525hp V8 in the S63 or a 612hp twin-turbo V12 in the top-of-the-top-of-the-line S65. Mercedes has also packed the pair with all manner of electronic systems to keep all that power in check, plus the latest luxury and performance touches to distinguish this pair from the rest of the line. Although American pricing has yet to be announced, sales begin in the U.S. this coming September, while European prices indicate that these aren't for the everyman: €115,700 will get you behind the wheel of a short-wheelbase S63, another €6k will score you the long-wheelbase version while the S65 fetches a suitably monstrous €185,900.
