Looks like Mercedes is not threatening Ferrari on the F1 circuits only :cool:


Mercedes has finally revealed the new 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series. Based on the recently revised Benz SL65 AMG, the newly blackened version will now be Mercedes most powerful production car ever. With the finely tuned and double-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 under the hood, power is up to an astonishing 661 HP with torque remaining at the already staggering 738 lb-ft. Expected to be priced in the range of $320,000, the SL65 AMG Black Series hits the Benz lineup as an indirect replacement for the McLaren-built SLR coupe.

:rolleyes2 Cool, doubles up as a subtle spoiler when its kept :cool: but possibly reducing the boot space...

:cheerful: For someone to be rich/crazy enough to afford this, boot space might not be of much concern, as he probably have other cars like a BMW X5 in the garage for his golf bag, shopping and other purposes :rolleyes2

I think AMG is trying too hard with this. The wheel fenders look obnoxious from the back view.

Imagine placing a red Ferrari beside this one, I'll take the red instead of this black anytime. :cool:

Looks like that is inevitable as the wheelbase and tires are so wide. From the back it looks funny, but when viewed from the side, the protuding fenders make it look very sporty.. :thumbsup:

Why is it called the black series when it's silver in colour? :confused: :sly:
