2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series


Weighing 210 lbs less than a standard Mercedes SL65, with a four-inch wider track and 57 more horsepower, not only does this powerhouse live up to what the world has come to expect from AMG's Black Series line, but, quite frankly, it rivals the archetypal Mercedes supercar, the SLR. And it does so for a fraction of the price.

With 661 hp and 738 ft-lbs of torque, the SL65 Black Series is the most powerful Mercedes ever and will rocket to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 199 mph! Creating the extra power was achieved with just a few modifications to the standard SL65's biturbo V-12 engine, including a redesigned exhaust system, intercoolers that are 30 percent more efficient and turbochargers that flow 12 percent more air.

Cruising along the winding roads and blasting down the highways around Monterey, CA, it became more than obvious that a car like this is being wasted on the street. Sure it’s fun, but you just can’t begin to test the limits of a bi-turbo V-12-powered carbon body coupe with speed limits, stoplights and pedestrians ruining all the fun. So it’s a good thing our route was taking us to Laguna Seca raceway.

I have my doubts as to whether those huge scoops and wide flares will withstand the test of time from a design point of view , or whether in just 10 years we will look back on the design and think "what were they thinking". Clearly some mercedes cars age more graceful with time, this I don't think will be one of them.... But we'll see in 10 years.

You know? Since my childhood I was asking myself on every Mercedes design (or look) whether it will be nice in the future or it will be forgotten with time and I was always realizing that every model is shining with years and every coupe price is increasing with time like the legendary 300SL Gullwing...

I am proud to own 5 Mercedes Benz cars knowing that they are not too much expensive but at the end they are Mercedes....

Thanks,
Elie

Yea may be a tad exaggerated to last out over the years, but it looks stunning today.
