iForged Building 1,000 Horsepower SL65 Black Series Roadster for SEMA


The 2009 SEMA Show is still over half a year away but contrary to popular belief, not every vehicle is assembled in a mad rush at the last minute. Wheel manufacturer iForged has already released details of what its big SEMA project will be and after last year’s 996 to 997 Porsche Turbo conversion, complete with GT3 RS green paint and TechArt goodies, we would expect nothing less than a serious performer.

Company owner Vincent Wong posted on his personal blog that the 2009 SEMA iForged project is a convertible (or roadster) version of the SL65 AMG Black Series. To be more accurate though, the vehicle will actually be an SL65, but will be converted with all the necessary bodywork to resemble the Black Series. But that’s not all.

IForged will also work with JE and Crower to build up the bottom end of the 6.0-liter V12 engine and Artisan Performance will assist with some larger turbos. The final engine output numbers are expected to be in the 1,000hp range.

Fox Marketing is also getting involved in the project, likely taking care of the body modifications. We just hope they can resist the temptation to paint the SL bright orange.
