An exciting news from Mercedes, S65 AMG Coupe (Used to be CL65 AMG) is revealed. Why important? There is one reason, S65 AMG Coupe is the only S-Coupe that features the Road Surface Scan with Magic Body Control technology. This technology scans the road and adjusts the suspensions before you hit any pothole or speeding bumps.
Unfortunately, Road Surface Scan with Magic Body Control cannot be ordered with 4MATIC (all-wheel drive) system due to its settlement at the front axle. Magic Body Control is an extension of ABC (Active Body Control) system that adjusts the pressure of hydraulic fluid inside the suspension to improve the ride. However, the 4MATIC does not provide enough room accommodate this technology for ages.
If you are excited with S65 AMG Coupe, Road Surface Scan is the only nice thing. The rest is the same, heavy V12 engine with a heavy transmission, lack of traction to deliver the power and unbalanced weight distribution.
Despite these problems, Road Surface Scan is a ground-breaking technology. And still rear-end of the S-Coupe still looks like a Renault Laguna Coupe!
Specs of S65 AMG Coupe: V12 6-lt twin turbo petrol engine with 630 HP and 1000 Nm of torque. Engine is coupled with AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox. The top speed is limited to 300 km/h for US and 250 km/h for EU. 4.1 seconds is necessary to reach 100 km/h.
