Dont know if this qualifies as a new car but here it is <br><IMG SRC="http://fp.images.autos.msn.com/merismus/gallery/c452920a.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://fp.images.autos.msn.com/merismus/gallery/c452918a.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><I>The latest creation from AMG, the world-renowned high-performance division of Mercedes-Benz, is the S65 AMG. Power comes from a hand-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, which produces an astonishing 604 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. <p>Mercedes-Benz states that zero to sixty mph acceleration on a test track will take just 4.2 seconds. The S65 AMG is equipped with ABC active suspension with special AMG spring struts, reworked ESP stability control, and ASR traction control system. <p>The AMG twin-spoke 19-inch wheels carry 245/40 ZR 19 high-performance tires on the front and 275/35 ZR 19 tires on the rear. The S65 AMG is equipped with eight piston calipers and compound brake rotors for the front brakes. <p>To provide a better view of the impressive AMG powerplant in the S65, Mercedes brought an AMG technician to Chicago. This technician was actually assembling an AMG twin-turbo V12 on the Mercedes-Benz display. Mercedes officials say it takes about eight worker hours to assemble the engine. <br></I><p>source-msn

As far as price range goes, sure it will probably be up there with the bentlesy and maybachs, but as far as quality and interior goes, this is just the same ole s class interior with some beefed up performance attributes...

It doesn't come even close to the price of the cheapest Maybach, nor is it the same type of vehicle. As for Bentley's go, this might have a little bit of overlap (price-wise) with Bentley's new Flying Spur, though in all likelyhood the Bentley will offer much greater degrees of customization than the MB and will ultimately also be more expensive.

Either way, AMG has yet again taken an otherwise semi-dull and average luxury sedan, and made it rediculously more disireable. I don't know wether to love them or loathe them for it though.

i was talking about he said that he just bought a s-class and people that can afford 2 s-classes may be very rich but from my own experiance people who make that much money usually dont spend a lot of time posting on forums and i was not talking about upper or lower class, i know a lot of people and i guess im one of them from the upper class but being around 30 years old and having that much money to buy pretty much the same car that you own and having time to spend on forums amazes me

hmmm, a benz i would consider, very rare indeed - this car should be fabulous - 1000nm would just have to be experienced, but arent these engine numbers getting a little scary???

I think the price tag touches £145,000, I believe.
