Mercedes-Benz will be showcasing their newest model of the S65 AMG, hoping to reduce weight while increasing horsepower. As of the current model, the curb weight comes in around 5,000 pounds, which is quite beefy for a car with 651 horsepower. Hopefully reducing some of the weight with the increase in power will help push it above the competition, such as the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series, and Jaguar XJ.

Don’t expect the refreshed model to come cheap; the 2013 model starts at $212,000. That is certainly a price increase from its competition to say the least. Find out more about this beauty after it is released at the 2013 LA Auto Show.
