The Mercedes S65 AMG (W222) is already eye-catching in its straight-from-the-factory form. However, coupled with an amazing finish, its appeal can be further elevated. That’s what happened to the amazing S65 in the picture above.
According to BenzTuning, the source of the awesome photos, the type of the paint used for the car was iridium silver metallic. That’s quite a mouthful, but it all sums up to “stunning”.
A silver metallic finish in a Mercedes definitely brings its coolness. This is comparable to the chrome Mercedes S63 AMG of Alfredo Simon. That’s minus the glare, of course.
The source didn’t mention any changes in the engine of the 2015 Mercedes S65 AMG. It still carries the same 6.0-liter SOHC biturbo V12 engine. Therefore, its output should be the same at 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Those figures are already whopping as they are. However, for those with unquenchable thirst for more power, this beautiful and classy finish can be combined with the Rocket 900 hp tuning package of Brabus.
The power from the stock AMG V12 unit are focused to the rear wheels, and distributed via a seven-speed automatic gearbox with manual shifting mode. It enables the performance version of the luxury auto to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in only a span of 3.7 seconds. On the other hand, its top speed is electronically limited at 187 mph.
