The Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series is an unquestionably beautiful car. Unfortunately, as part of its extensive list of performance enhancements, it loses one of the SL’s family’s most desirable features: the folding roof. Attempting to bring the thrill of open air driving up to the performance (and styling) status of the Black Series, TC-Concepts has introduced a Black Series tuning package for the traditional SL65 AMG.
Outside, new styling cues include significantly wider fender flares, a new grill, modified bumpers and 20-inch ADV1 Deep Concave Series wheels, all of which bring the TC-Concepts’ SL65 AMG Black Series tuning package significantly in line with its factory direct counterpart. As for power, the output of the SL65 AMG’s twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 has been bumped up to 700 PS (515 kW / 690 bhp), or 30 PS (22 kW / 30 bhp) more than the standard SL65 AMG Black Series. The result is a 0-62 mph time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph. Add to that a retractable hard top, and you’ve got yourself an open air SL remarkably close in performance to the standard SL65 Black.
