The AMG 65-series are in many ways the ultimate expression of what a car can be in terms of performance and luxury. But nobody seems to pay them any attention these days because there is no getting away from the fact that a massive twin-turbo V12 makes little sense in this day and age. Still, you can’t argue with the appeal of something like this Mercedes SL65 AMG which is everything you’d ever want from a car.

The 2015 Mercedes SL65 AMG is an open-top sports car, a luxury cruiser, an Autobahn stormer, a cosseting coupe, a drag racer, and we are fairly sure it is more intelligent than some human beings! Check out the car in intimate details in this great video tour by SaabKyle:
