Mercedes Shows Off SL65 AMG Black Series

Written by tonks on March 27, 2008

SL65 AMG Black SeriesMercedes has decided to make up for the failure of the SLR McLaren. When they first released the McLaren they had hoped that it would be something that consumers would want to get their hands on right away. While the design of the car is very tempting and unique in its own right it is the power that has everyone so disappointed. The lack of power and the high price tag made it very unappealing.

Luckily Mercedes has learned its lesson and has done the necessary improvements for the new Black Series version of the SL65 AMG. The new Black Series AMG has been designed to handle more power with less weight attached to it. This is a very common formula that many automakers have used and it has worked successfully in the past. The Ferrari 430 Suderia is an excellent example of this.

Mercedes will be replacing most of the body panels – which means that even the roof mechanism will be gone because of its heavy weight. Mercedes is promising us an even faster ride that will be better than the SLR McLaren and even more affordable. Yet, this is not the replacement car for the SLR. Mercedes is preparing an even better car for that called the SLC.
