I wish the new Ford Crown Victoria came out. I think it will be a 2015/2016 model. They should have both: a modified Ecoboost V6 (around 405 horsepower) and a Mercedes-Benz V12 engine (producing 621 horsepower), the same as this car.

The facelifted S65 AMG.

The engine remains untouched power / torque numbers. But the "Ultimate of ultimates" got a diet and a newer 7-speed automatic transmission. I'm curious why the 4Matic is not available for the S65? Because RWD does not much fit this car...

I'm not satisfied with the aesthetics though. Looks too ordinary to be the top AMG model... Not enough sport, aggression.

Well, maybe this S65 AMG is the fastest Überklasse saloon, in line with the Flying Spur, but I would still prefer the S8.
