Tell Eddie: Mercedes hit 630bhp with 'super' S-Class

MERCEDES will unveil a 630bhp, twin-turbocharged, 6-litre V12, S 65 AMG at the Los Angeles and Tokyo motor shows – before it goes on sale here next year.

Like its less powerful stablemates in the newly-arrived S-Class, the 65 AMG has a huge array technology such as a sports suspension based on the 'Magic Carpet' system. This scans the road ahead for surface imperfections and undulations so that the system can adjust the suspension in advance to keep the drive as smooth as possible.

GETTING LOWDOWN ON THE LEAF

COULD be an interesting couple of hours this evening (6pm) at Windsor Deansgrange, where they are holding a Nissan LEAF stint on why an electric car just might suit you. Among the topics will be: why buy an electric car? grants and incentives, cost of ownership and – significantly – common concerns. There will be a Q&A with a panel of experts.
