The SL65 Black Series is the most underrated Mercedes sports car ever
It's the most powerful Mercedes car ever!!!
Released for the 2008 model year this version of the regular SL model that spanned decades was Mercedes' way of getting so insane with creating something that was totally out of this world. This is by far the most insane Mercedes built car ever "Yes even more so than the new AMG GT Black Series". Something you have to understand is is that by the late 2000's and early 2010's Mercedes were creating even more insane versions of their already crazy AMG models which is where Black Series came into the picture to spice things up to the next level.
Although AMG were known for creating NA powerful V8 engines they decided to go even more insane for their Black Series models especially for the SL65. Instead of using another V8 engine AMG decided to put a twin turbo V12 engine that produces 661 HP and 1000 N.M of torque which made it the most powerful Mercedes car ever until the AMG GT Black Series upped the power to 730 HP but dropped the torque to 800 N.M. This thing was so incredibly insane for the time even to this very day, although this massively incredible engine was strapped to this car it had such a disadvantage for getting off line mainly due to the fact that it was rear wheel drive.
Even though this was crazy as hell, on the inside it was still based on the regular SL model that had many of the functions that it did but some things were tweaked here and there to distinguish it from it's lower counterpart.
The glory days of Merc's days of crazy insane cars are gone but we certainly won't forget them, because it was the time where things actually made sense in the world and no one was worried for when the next Tik Tok would come out . This beast is so underrated by many people because it's so misunderstood which is why I consider this the most craziest German machine ever built, hate it or love it it's cool as hell.
