Click above for a high resolution image of the SL65 AMG Black Series

We haven't seen any photos of the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series except for the press photos and a few wallpapers we scrounged up. As far was we know, no one has actually seen the car in person outside of Mercedes-Benz, let alone photographed it. So imagine our surprise when we spotted one headed our direction while trying to crash the Ferrari-owners-invited-only North American debut of the Ferrari California in Monterey. We instantly forgot about trying to catch a glimpse of the Ferrari and turned our lenses towards the Black Series. Fortunately, Mercedes-Benz had no problem with us taking photographs of the car, and we were able to get plenty of detailed pictures. Enjoy the high resolution gallery below and we'll be back later with more from Monterey!

      dumb people they see a wing and they think its rice. they see a body kit and they think is rice too. they see a nice car with a wing and a body kit and they want to call it rice. rice by definition is what the japanese eat at panda express, n some of them drive rice as well. the other definition is over customizing a car with no purpose other then making it awful, horrible and cheap. this does not meet any of the two. nice piece of car, that I would not mind driving.

      What about Clarkson driving it in the Top Gear episode a few weeks back ?

      IDK why but when I saw this car on top gear and now even looking at close up pics, it reminds me of the GTR. its gotta be that body shape.

      What the heck is wrong with you guys? Thats a seriously sexy machine. Go back to the Minivan forums or something. Jeez.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I wouldn't say sexy, more like the good kind of ugly.

      Very nice.

      This car proves that no matter how capable your car is, it can still look like a poseur.

      The rims really sell it as emphasizing being a magnet for attention more than a performer. Even if it is a good performer.
