Any collector or fan of Mercedes-Benz is going to want to check out this rare opportunity.
Throughout Mercedes-Benz’s successful history as an automotive manufacturer and motorsports champion, there have been vehicles that continue to hold significance among passionate car collectors and enthusiasts. Some of those collector-grade cars share a similarity in being a part of Mercedes-Benz’s ultra-exclusive AMG Black Series, incorporating design characteristics and performance engineering from the winning Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team. Showcasing one of the most desirable models from the limited-production series, the professionals at Sotheby’s Motorsport are pleased to offer this pristine 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series as part of its current online auction lineup.
With worldwide production of 350 units and only 175 of those delivered to the U.S., this specific SL65 AMG Black Series features a gloss black finish from Mercedes-Benz. In addition to an aggressive body style and lower ride height, model-specific carbon fiber bodywork comes complete with an active rear wing and diffuser for optimal aerodynamics at high speeds. A set of factory 19/20-inch sports wheels acts as the traction-grabbing source for the subcompact supercar, with AMG carbon ceramic brakes supplying the stopping power.
Inside, the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series reveals a subtly stealthy Black AMG Exclusive leather interior. The driver-centric cabin presents a sport-focused look and feel thanks to gloss carbon fiber trim accents, 12-way power heated & ventilated AMG sport seats, power 4-way steering wheel, and luxuries including Airscarf neck-level heating. An AMG instrument cluster with racetimer and gear position displays raises the Black Series’ urgency over standard SL cockpits.
The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series comes fit with a monstrous 6.0L bi-turbocharged V12 AMG engine, paired with a 5-speed driver-adaptive electronic AMG automatic transmission. Fitted during current ownership with a RENNtech R3 Performance Package, the output is further pushed to a claimed 810 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft of torque according to the aftermarket manufacturer.
With an odometer reading of 8,984 miles at the time of listing, this 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is sold with a clean Montana Title registered to the seller’s Montana LLC. This 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series auction from Sotheby’s Motorsport is currently live for bidding and ends on September 28th.
