Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

The new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series has incredible appearance, unique performance data and total exclusivity. Under the hood, the model hides an AMG 6.0-liter V12 bi-turbo engine capable of developing 670 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque. Wide cooling air apertures in the front apron and the bonnet are the clearest indication of the massive power of this AMB 12-cylinder bi-turbocharged engine. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, to 200 km/h in 11.0 seconds and to reach an electronically limited top speed of 320 km/h. To send the power to the wheels, the carmaker offered 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch at the rear. With their black paintwork high-sheen surface and matt finish, they lend a note of extravagance to the side profile. The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series also displays its power pack and suspension at their best. An AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 5-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheels. As for the suspension, the AMG experts have put their trust in a new design. The AMG sports suspension has been designed on adjustable coil spring lines. The large AMG high-performance brake system can be seen through the filigree structure of the AMG twin-spoke light-alloy wheels. The interior of the model provides the perfect ambience to set the pulses of sports car enthusiasts racing. It exudes the functional atmosphere of a genuine racing sports car while the lovingly designed details have the power to captivate. Exhaustive development and testing of the SL 65 AMG Black Series began in 2006. The new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series had to prove its production readiness under all conditions. The first vehicles will be delivered to customers starting November 2008.
