Chicago Gets Benz S65
The latest AMG product hitting American shores will make it as far as the Chicago show before slowing down momentarily for its North American debut. The Mercedes-Benz S65 is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 with 604 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. During the show's media days, Benz engineers from AMG will actually build two engines on the show stand, taking about 7 hours for each assembly. Benz says this is the only time engines have or will be assembled outside of Affalterbach , Germany , home of AMG.
