A carbon fiber hood, fixed roof, fenders and trunk has reduced it weight by 550 pounds. It holds a larger turbochargers, a more rationalize inter-cooler and modified exhausts to boost power by 57 hp to 670 hp.

Though, Mercedes-Benz claims the SL65 AMG Black Series will accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than "3.9 seconds" and attain a top speed limit of 199 miles per hour. In similarity, the standard SL65 AMG figures are 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 4.2 seconds and a limited 155 miles per hour top speed. On the other hand, due to the lower overall weight, fuel consumption improves from 15.6 mpg to 16.3 mpg in U.S. figures.
The SL65 AMG Black Series, to be priced at around $320,000, slots into the Mercedes-Benz lineup as an indirect substitute for the McLaren-built SLR coupe, which quietly discontinue production late last year upon the debut of the SLR roadster.
