Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series - Back to Black

Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series - Back to Black Merc describes it as the 'exclusive high-performance coupe for the discerning motorist'. By 'discerning' we can only presume they mean 'ever so slighty nuts'.
July 11, 2008 - PRLog -- The SL Black - the third Black series car after the SLK and sensational CLK - is based on the latest SL 65.

The 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine has been tweaked by AMG to 670bhp and 1000 Nm of torques - that's 737lb/ft in old money or 152lb/ft more than an SLR...The standard SL 65 AMG has a measly 612bhp.

The SL Black also gets a chunky wide-arch bodykit, modified intake system, two trapezoidal tail pipes and a carbon roof. The SL's trick vario roof folding hardtop has been junked in favour of an integral roll cage.

Composite brakes are fitted, as are 20-inch alloys and a retractable boot spoiler. The Black is 250kg lighter than the SL 65 AMG. 0-62mph comes up in 3.9seconds and top speed is limited to 199mph - figures near identical to the SLR and all for £100,000 less than the big McMerc.

So you pays your money you make our choice, nice dilemma!
