If you think the 604-bhp twin-turbo V-12 engine in the already-potent Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG is not quite powerful enough, you might consider checking your pulse. Better yet, check out the new 661-bhp V-12 in the 2009 SL65 AMG Black Series shown at the L.A. Auto Show. It’s a great engine. Using the standard SL65 AMG’s 6.0-liter turbocharged powerplant as a starting point, AMG engineers have been able to achieve an increase in power by installing larger turbos and modifying the ducting for the air intake and waste gates. A new exhaust system also helps.

Complementing the power upgrade are the Black Series’ generous use of composite body panels and adjustable suspension that enhances the car’s on-track performance. The carbon-fiber composites (CFRP) — seen on the front clip, hood, roof and rear spoiler — shave about 550 lb. off the curb weight compared with the standard SL65 AMG. To optimize handling on the track, the shocks, ride height, wheel alignment and camber can be tuned to individual driver preference.

In styling, the new Black Series looks like a standard SL65 AMG, though one that has bulked up on steroids. Up front the air scoops are bigger and deeper. Around the side, vents just aft of the front wheels aid engine cooling. In the back a retractable spoiler extends to improve rear grip when the car exceeds 75 mph. Compared to the standard SL65 AMG, the Black Series rides about 0.5 in. lower and is considerably wider, by 3.8 in. in front and 3.3 in back.

175 Cars produced for the US with 350 total for Worldwide Production.

My apologies for the lack of better photos, but the owner is an enthusiast and not a photographer.

I have included “press photos” to give you a better idea of the overall looks of the Black Series Edition.

Thanks for looking!
