There was a time when Mercedes produced some of the most obscene cars in the world, in extremely low numbers, for no other reason than they could. The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series carves its own path, a path that is unapologetically bold and unreservedly opulent. Putting out a staggering 670 horsepower from it's V12, the black series here is a true beast. One of just 350 ever produced.

The exterior was heavily modified too: with its wide wheel arches and aggressively sculpted lines, it speaks a language of performance that is unmistakably Mercedes-Benz. The carbon-fibre fixed roof, replacing the standard SL’s retractable hardtop, doesn’t just reduce weight; it transforms the vehicle into a more rigid, track-focused monster, especially if you happen to have a support crew who can replace your tyres every three laps...

Inside, the cabin is a masterclass in carbon fibre. The bucket seats, swathed in the finest leather, offer a supportive embrace, holding you firmly in place as you navigate through every twist and turn.

In the world of supercars, the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series stands as a testament to what is possible when engineering and artistry collide.
