Platinum Motorsports SL65 AMG at Continental's SEMA booth – Click above for hiigh-res image gallery

The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series isn't short in the tooth, but gussied up correctly it can still make a worthy meal for the autophile – even when it's dressed in everybody's-doin'-it matte gray. Continental tire's SEMA booth, showcasing its ExtremeContact DW and ExtremeContact DWS rubber, had this light-eating creature from Platinum Motorsports glaring from the corner. 'Roided-up skirts and splitters with carbon fiber trimmings abound, and every transparent plane has been remedied by the liberal application of tints. We'd buy that for it for a dollar, no doubt.

There was something else under covers that we'll be bringing you later. For now, the SL65 AMG was left to preside over a back-up band consisting of a Bentley Continental GT, a Maybach as black as the intergalactic void itself, and a BMW racer with a set of slick slicks. Enjoy the view in the galleries below.

      Now this is a right proper automobile. Paint could use some more blue in it, but right proper anyways.

      Really? Only four photos of the Continental GT...from the rear 3/4? Could have skipped the ugly ass Maybach if camera space was an issue.

      The SL65 and Bentley are just awesome. As much as i like the wheels on the Bentley, I think they should have just blacked those out as well. The car is a black hole, more so than the maybach.

      So ludicrous, yet so lustworthy

        Thanks, I wondered what it was. I could tell the rear bumper was wrong, but the fenders etc looked about the same as the black edition. Nice looking kit though IMO.
