The SL65 Black Series
is possibly the most extreme car ever built by Mercedes-Benz
. Obviously based on the SL-Class roadster
, the Black Series gets a fixed roof instead of the power-folding one on the regular models.
Power comes from a retuned version of the SL65 AMG's twin-turbo, 36-valve, 6.0-litre V12 that develops 661 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, which is connected to a 5-speed automatic transmission with rev matching. The German brand claims a top speed of 318 km/h.
Visually, Black Series SL is instantly recognizable by its bulging front and rear fenders, wider track and redesigned bumpers. Other significant modifications include a revised suspension and redecorated cockpit.
The 10th-anniversary smart is also on display, and will be very exclusive. Only 10 copies will be available in Canada; 1 will be given away in a contest and the rest will be sold through a reservation lottery.
Based on the smart fortwo BRABUS
, the 10-anniversary model offers additional design elements and an overall sportier package.
