The V12 has long been the pinnacle of their powertrain lineup, but the company has decided to begin phasing out those highly-coveted engines to focus on developing their line of V8s and electric powertrains. You can still get your hands on a new V12 if you're willing to pony up the cash for one of their Final Edition S 65 sedans. Limited to 130 vehicles worldwide, the Final Edition models will feature a high-gloss obsidian black metallic paint finish, 20-inch forged multi-spoke copper wheels, air-inlet grilles in matte bronze, and a black Nappa leather interior with copper trim elements.
