The MB Market Insights
When nothing but the absolute best will do, the flagship S65 AMG is often the weapon of choice. The car does almost everything perfectly. Whether you're looking for the utmost luxury and comfort or have a desire for brute power and speed, the S65 will do both and often times at the same time. We're huge fans of this particular AMG and not only because it's more rare than a Murcielago. To start, the Cubanite paint is one of the best shades to ever be offered by Mercedes-Benz. It requires a refined taste to appreciate and knowing there's a V12 just begging to be let loose under the hood completes the facade. As a 2006 model, this S65 is a final year example of the W220 making it the ultimate spec. We've seen various cars age well over time but the W220 AMG in particular has really matured well as a proper flagship sedan. The factory two-piece wheels alone would set you back a few grand and the plethora options on this example are surely worthy of an S-Class Mercedes-Benz. If you're looking for the best of the best, look no further.
