Additional Info


The CLK63 AMG Black Series is one of my favourite cars. It’s got a mad hooligan-friendly handling and sounds a whole grid of DTM racers. not the fastest or the best handling car you can but it’s definitely one of the most

So I was expecting more of the same the SL65 AMG Black Series, but I get it. For all its killer, stealth fighter it’s completely different car from the CLK. Rather being a race track it’s more a super-sonically road jet.

It starts life as a standard AMG, and there’s not much of it when the boys in the white have finished with it. they rip out the roof mechanism, pull off pretty much all the before replacing them Batmobile-esque carbon fibre/plastic

Next they throw the heavy air suspension and active control system, replacing it a tunable coil and strut And finally they slap on a of 12 per cent bigger turbos to the great six-litre V12. are loads of other detail they do too, but those are the changes.

The result of which is a 250kg car with 58 more horsepower bringing the total to 670 — the brakes and suspension to keep it all in With a top speed of 200mph and only an astronaut has experienced it all sounds good so far, it?

And it is in a straight line — travel more slowly this car. The problems when you try to get the thing to go through a of corners. It might have a sixth of its bodyweight, but it’s no skinny sprinter. The SLBS squashes the scales to the tune of and weight doesn’t like direction. So, to make it go where you it to, AMG has remapped the ESP stability and traction

And this is the issue. For all the time tuning it at the Nurburgring, after (with it on) or wildly over-steering it off) into a corner, the weight and enormous power overwhelm the onboard brain. it wonders what to do, you are left there in your £250,000 foot on the floor, wondering it’s all going to end.

You can make it easier for the car by summoning inner Stig and being smooth and precise, but arrive at a you haven’t seen before and chances of getting around it are severely limited. It’s not as at normal road speeds, but still there. It only completely on long sweeping like you might find on the which is where the car belongs.

Not that any of this is really a that needs any more The total production run of the car is just 350 and only eight of those are destined for the UK. With the SLR finishing its run the 75-unit Speedster next this black ops SL will the fastest production Mercedes

Can’t argue with but I would if anyone said it was the most fun. That’s one the CLK Black still holds, and too.
