2009 MERCEDES-BENZ SL65 AMG Black Series
Obsidian Black with Black/Anthracite Exclusive Nappa Leather
Offered direct from Mercedes-Benz F1 CEO and Team Principal Toto Wolff who purchased the car from HWA AG.
Toto himself was one of the development drivers for the SL 65 AMG Black Series in 2008 carried out at the infamous Nürburgring, Nordschleif. For Toto to then acquire one of these examples, the one we are offering here for sale, and for it to have remained in his collection ever since is a testament to how very special these limited production examples actually are.
First unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, it’s without doubt the ultimate ‘SL’. With a 6.0 litre V12 with larger turbo chargers, a bigger intercooler, a new exhaust system and a more suitable remapped ECU than the standard SL 65 the results are an increase in power to 670bhp, a 0-60mph (0-100kph) in just 3.8 seconds and a whopping top speed of 199mph (320kph), albeit electronically limited to tame the V12 engine.
The upgraded performance was matched with equally impressive enhancements to the body and interior over the standard SL 65 AMG. The ‘Black Series’ offers a weight-saving carbon fibre-reinforced bonded roof and spoiler, a widened body, 19″ AMG Spoke alloys to the front and 20″ AMG Spoke alloys to the rear, along with carbon fibre interior upgrades complimented with Nappa leather and Alcantara.
Only 350 ‘Black Series’ were ever produced and this is a very rare opportunity to own what was once the most powerful production Mercedes-Benz ever produced.
Located and taxes paid in Switzerland, this particular example must boast a better provenance than any other of its type and it comes complete with its owners handbooks, pouch, spare key and history file including the original sale agreement to Toto.
