6. 2004-2010 Mercedes-Benz S65/ CL65/ SL65 AMG
6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12; 604 hp @ 4800 rpm, 738 lb-ft @ 2000-4000 rpm
If you wanted the ultimate in Mercedes motive power, the 65-series S, CL, and SL-Class models were your ideal vehicles. The M275 was a twin-turbocharged, 6.0-liter V-12 capable of generating the sorts of power that could upstage Zeus himself. Peak horsepower – 604 ponies – came on at 4800 rpm, while a whopping 738 lb-ft of torque was delivered between 2000 and 4000 rpm. Benz’s 0-60 estimates for the S63 were conservatively placed in the low-four-second range – incredible, considering the size and heft of the car itself.
