The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series

Mercedes-Benz unleashes their SL 65 Black Series that turns out an eye-popping 670 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque from a 6 liter V12 twin turbocharged motor. Only 200 units are designated for U.S. shores, so get in line now. Don’t forget to bring your checkbook. The price tag for the SL 65 Black Series is $320,000.

Equally impressive is the SL 65′s power-to-weight ratio of 6.17 lb/hp. Similar in performance, but can be had for less than $300k, is the Ferrari 599 GTB Fioranio with a power-to-weight ration of 6.00 lb/hp. If you like numbers, the 599 GTB Fiorano cranks out 620 hp and 448 lb-ft of torque from a normally aspirated 6 liter V12. The Ferrari 599 seems like a bargain at $270,000. Does it become a question of which one to choose or do the two marquees attract their own loyal fellowship?

  1. Hit me over the head with a brick says:

    Can someone explain to me why you wouldn’t just buy- I don’t know a SL63 or SL65 version and just put a aftermaket (aero kit) similiar to the pictures above… Take off the badges from that back… Who would know? Unless you that “Anal Guy” that just has to know!!!

    Hmmm pay 150k (SL63) that looks like 320k (BS’SL65) and save the difference…
    We all know that both will depreciate in time anyway… So what are we really talking about??
