Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

Extreme super cars from the 2009 SL65 AMG Black Series definitely make a priced catch. With just 350 units expected to be launched in 2009, Mercedes-Benz boasts of the newest installations added to the recent.

The weight is down to approximately 4,300 pounds. 500 pounds lighter than a standard SL65. It has a fixed roof with a roll cage that’s fully integrated. Because of its lighter weight, this unit has 1 horsepower per 6.1 pounds for its power-to-weight ratio.

Other than the doors-aluminum outer skin and the magnesium inner, everything else is fresh. Take the steel bumper and rear fenders for example.

The AMG or Mercedes production broke its own record by coming up with a superb twin turbo V12 with 6.0-liter. So far the most powerful engine dated in the carmaker’s history. It also has a 5-speed auto transition with a torque converter.

Talk about the steering system and the brakes, Mercedes made sure that everything comes in one package. It is similar to the ones they offer in their SL63 AMG Performance Package. Add to it are the two suspension settings.

Very noticeable in these super cars are the rear tires—325/30ZR20. This is massive. Its look is more like that of a proper coupe as the AMG CEO, Thomas Rappel, suggested. The front tires would only be 265/35ZR19s.

The claims of the manufacturer about the 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds may sound superficial but it’s superbly possible with this one. Once the driver goes full throttle, he will be blazing on the asphalts.
