A 700+ HP, 200 MPH super sedan.
The big luxury behemoth that is the Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W222) is at the forefront of the executive full-size sedan marketplace, and for good reason. In S65 AMG form, the big ‘Benz becomes quite the super sedan. However, the S65 Project by Voltage-Design is on another level completely thanks to its tune, chassis, and aerodynamics.
The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG already sports a more dynamic factory package compared to the standard models, but Voltage-Design took it a step further with their full carbon fiber aerodynamics kit. The package includes a new front spoiler and fenders that melt into the side skirts and new mirror caps. For good measure, carbon fiber roof and trunk spoilers are added and work along with the diffuser to generate just enough downforce. To shed even more weight, the hood is made entirely of carbon fiber.
Under that woven carbon fiber sits the mighty 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12 engine pushing out all sorts of power thanks to two flavors of engine tunes. The first gives the V-12 680 horsepower and 811 lb-ft. with a 190 mph top speed for 3,899 Euros. The second pushes the engine to 720 horsepower and 848 lb-ft. of torque with a 200 mph top speed for 7,899 Euros. Both upgrades include a set of new downpipes, racing air filters, and full ECU tune to achieve their incredible outputs.
To finish it all off, the Voltage-Design S65 Project was outfitted with a more capable set of brakes and wheels to handle the added power and speed. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG was equipped with a set of staggered, five double-spoke wheels measuring 9.0 x 21 up front and 10.5 x 21 at the rear with corresponding performance tires for a larger footprint and commanding stance. Behind those wheels sit new lightweight carbon ceramic brakes that shed 66 lbs. of weight for better overall performance. The front axle sports four-piston calipers with 420/40 mm discs while the rear utilizes 370/32 mm discs to make the sedan come to a halt.
The new Voltage-Design S6 5Project is available as an entire package or individual accessories. The full carbon fiber aerodynamic kit is priced at 24,900 Euros with the carbon fiber hood is an extra 3,000 Euros. The carbon ceramic braking system also comes in at 14,850 Euros.
