2009 MERCEDES-BENZ SL65 AMG Black Series
Obsidian Black Metallic with Black & Grey Sports Seats
Offered direct from the four-time Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel.
An SL65 AMG Black Series is a very special car, 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 SL65 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 SL65 AMG. The ‘Black Series’ offers a weight-saving carbon fibre-reinforced bonded roof and spoiler, a widened body, 19″ forged alloys to the front and 20″ to the rear, along with carbon fibre interior upgrades complimented with Nappa leather and Alcantara.
Only 350 ‘Black Series’ were ever produced and this particular example must be one of the most special of all of them. Gifted to Sebastian for his victory at the first ever Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix and has remained within his collection ever since.
Serviced in September 2020 at less than 30km ago and comes complete with its owners handbooks, pouch, spare key and history file.
A very rare opportunity to own what was once the most powerful production Mercedes-Benz ever produced and the example that must boast a better provenance than any other.
