The AMG tuning arm of Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with prestige performance, the Black Series label however is just downright scary.
The new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series is potent mix of lightweight design, insane performance and total exclusivity.
The high-performance two-seater coupe is powered by an AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine, with a maximum output of 493kW at 5400rpm and an electronically limited 1000Nm between 2200 and 4200 rpm.
Without any electronic handicaps, the hand-built AMG engine would achieve maximum torque of 1200Nm thanks to the newly designed pair of turbochargers developed specifically for the SL 65 AMG Black Series engine.
These figures make the SL 65 AMG Black Series the most powerful AMG model ever to come out of Affalterbach.
From a standing start, it takes just 3.9 seconds to reach 100km/h and then onto an electronically limited top speed of 320km/h.
Its broad hips, retractable rear spoiler and aerodynamic front and rear aprons all find their origins in motorsport.
Pricing has not yet been announced; however it is most certainly a case of if you have to ask.
