The twin-turbocharged V-12 powered Mercedes-Benz AMG S65 Final Edition is not quite one-of-a-kind, but with only 130 produced worldwide (and no doubt a handful of doltish owners who will allow a valet to park theirs, thus reducing the number almost immediately) it comes very close. AMG was acquired by Mercedes some years ago to upgrade, enhance and essentially “build a better Benz.” Everything they touch is special, but none so special as this car. The base S65 is the road-going equivalent of a Gulfstream 6, yet AMG manages to propel it far beyond merely sublime. To paraphrase Henry Ford, you can order it any way you want, as long as that involves an Obsidian Black Metallic exterior with a Black Nappa Leather interior accented with bronze stitching, copper-hued interior lighting and floor mats embossed in brass. To prevent your friends from wondering how exclusive the car may be, the dash features a “1 one of 130” badge; MBUSA.com.
