While not currently listed on the configurator, Autoblog editor Jeremy Korzeniewski is on hand at the model's official launch, and tells us that the S65 AMG Coupe with its 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12, good for 621 hp and 738 lb-ft, starts at $230,900 for customers who think that other two are a bit underwhelming.
As with many Mercedes, the options list for these coupes is huge, including pricey add-ons like carbon ceramic brakes for the S63 AMG for $8,950. The S550 goes get a few bundles, as well: the Sport Package for $5,900 adds a body kit and different wheels; the $3,500 Premium Package includes a HUD and massaging seats, and there's the Warmth and Comfort Package for $1,990 that adds heaters to the rear seats, armrests, door panels and steering wheel.
