Pseudo German video host “Otto” had the opportunity to drive this brand new Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG to a customer in Iowa recently. Based on the voice over in the video Otto is pretty annoyed with the fact that you can have such an incredibly powerful 12 cylinder, Bi Turbo car with over 600 horsepower, but have nowhere to really use it on the highways in the United States.

This car begs to be pushed, begs to be driven fast, in fact, while driving it you find yourself constantly pulling your foot off the gas in order to stay within the limits of the law. Driving an S65 AMG is a bit like pheasant hunting with an RPG… more than you’ll ever need to accomplish the job, overkill to the max, but if you can do it… why not?
This particular S65 AMG was, of course, built to order. MSRP was just over $216,000. Color was black with black interior. If you have the opportunity to drive, ride or get in an S65… Otto suggests taking advantage of the opportunity, even if you can’t explore the limits of its performance.
