The recently facelifted SL is just the tip of the iceberg, after presenting the SL 63 AMG there’s now some official news on the über-SL, the SL65 Black Series! The hardcore SL65 Black Series will transform the standard SL into a 670 bhp coupé aiming at Lamborghini and Ferrari. This exclusive version of the SL-Class will be launched in autumn 2008, probably on the IAA in Frankfurt in september.
There will be only 400 units available, so if you want one you’ll need to be fast and willing to pay £193,000 (€260 000 – $ 381 500) to bag one.
The design makes it easy to spot the über SL, thanks to additional air intakes and a massive adjustable rear wing. Much of the giant price tag is spent on carbonfibre body panels, helping the Black shed a substantial 260kg over the SL65. Fireworks under the bonnet are provided by the SLR’s supercharged V8 developing a breathtaking 670 bhp and a maximum torque of 737 Nm. We can’t wait to see this one driving our streets or standing in our garages…
