Mercedes-Benz SL65 ‘means business’

AMG Performance Event - Mercedes Benz of Orlando

review of the Mercedes-Benz SL Black Series in the Daily Telegraph by Andrew English states that the vehicle offers motorists some "magnificent" engineering.

The vehicle includes a 670bhp, twin-turbocharged V12 engine, capable of hitting a top speed of 199mph.

A racing style splitter at the front of the two-seater helps the vehicle's engine gain some air, while "gigantic vents" help extract the heat developed through the large steel brakes.

The rear seats have been removed, when compared with other AMG vehicles, to help lower weight, stated to be around 250kg.

Also, the hydraulic folding roof, present in the standard model, has been removed and replaced with a roll bar and a carbon-fibre panel.

More carbon fibre also exists in the underlining of the bonnet and boot lid, with Mr English stating that from one glimpse of the car, a motorist can tell that the vehicle "means business".
