Buying an SL65 AMG Black Series for My Collection?

The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is a beast that's eluded me until now! Thanks to Mechatronik, I'm taking this menacing machine for a drive to find out what it's like and whether it could become a future member of the Shmeemobiles alongisde my SLS BLack Series, and if I'm lucky, the new GT Black Series as well.
The SL65 AMG Black Series is unbelievably cool in terms of its appearances; massive arches, an aggressive stance, and a thumping 6l Biturbo V12 making 670hp and a whopping 1,000Nm. Versus the regular SL65 it took out 250kg, thanks mostly to removing the folding hard top roof mechanism and making it a fixed coupe, along with the use of carbon fibre re-inforced plastic for the body panels - only sharing the door and mirrors with the regular car. It was the third model to wear the illustrious AMG Black Series badge and only 350 units were built in total.
Following on from the SLK55 and CLK63 Black Series models, it arrived before a pause of a number of years until the arrival in quick succession of the SLS and C63 models. Both of the latter two have always been absolute highlights to me, the SLS AMG Black Series being one of my favourite cars ever made hence making a purchase of one earlier this year, and the C63 BS standing out on each occasion I've driven one. However, ever since it launched in 2008, I have always felt the SL65 BS is one of the meanest looking cars on the market and been intrigued to find out what it's actually like.
With every finger and toe crossed that I'll be lucky enough to secure an allocation for the brand new AMG GT Black Series, I'm certainly considering expanding my collection and possibly with the addition of an SL65 Black Series, hence the desire to visit Mechatronik and have a go to see what it's like.
A huge thanks to the team at Mechatronik for this amazing opportunity, and pulling out such a stunning display including the CLK DTM, C63 Black Series with an engine swap to that from the SLS AMG GT3 racecar, 190 EVO 2, and also the surprise appearance of the SLS Electric Drive as well. For more content from their collection, projects being worked on and plenty more, be sure to follow at: mechatronik_official
Thanks for watching, Tim

To date I've never had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the SL65 AMG Black Series, but with my obsession with the SLS BS Shmeemobile, and desire for the new GT BS, it's time to find out what the earlier SL65 is actually like and whether it should be a future addition to the garage?! Thanks to Mechatronik

Personally I think you should buy the SL65 AMG Black Series. A car like that & a super cool guy like you would be the perfect combination.

H M Jahid Hassan, CFA what? You can’t just say that. You said I was wrong on what I said, which I clearly wasn’t. Now you just say “whatever”. Maybe you should think before you comment next time.

The m275 is so silent because of the turbos, and all of the resonators. Put a titanium exhaust and it will sound like an huayra. But just remember the original s600 v12 man... the high pitch sound.

People complained about it in the F50 video and here it is again, stop filming shmee all the time! Seriously, watch 9:59 he is at the same volume to hear than before so what is the drama? Why do so many youtuber-camaramen make this annoying move? It doesnt make sense most time, either you get a feeling when to point on the driver or you die trying.

Seems the SL’s discomforts would prevent you from driving it often or far. A collector would enjoy its styling; however, you’re a young, active driver moreso than a collector. Lots of other great choices out there. Thanks for providing such ifeo variety - museum visits, mountain drives in classic machines, car show and dealership visits, taking us along on trips around Europe, exotic car fianancing chats, car spotting in London and best of all, your drives around the ring. Perhaps you can visit some other tracks? Spa, Silverstone, Goodwood and LeMans come to mind! Best wishes, Tim. Thanks.

Jeremy Clarkson had one, that’s enough to not want it. Also it looks like a hairdressers car, Male hairdresser, the one who had more cash than those who bought the Audio TT. My parents we’re lazy arseholes, so it’s not an issue, even so, had they developed Amazon, it still wouldn’t be enough cash to make me want to buy one of these...........

So beautiful and classic!! You need to buy it and get the Brabus package for it which they reviewed on Top Gear back in the day and apparently it made over 1000lbs of torque, they had to limit it to 900 or something like that to make it drivable 😩🙏🏼

The thing about these Black Series that annoys me is that they're specifically built for the track but then they limit the number of units so ridiculously that they become garage queens. That SL65 you drove is a prime example, it's over a decade old and isn't even broken in yet. It's annoying af how people get these awesome cars just to hoard them in a garage. Go enjoy driving the thing or sell to someone who will ffs

In my opinion The 190E EVO at the back is way better Reason: The car itself is a legendary 154MPH in a 2.5(2.3)Liter l4 engine from 1990's One of the best looking car ever Big square spoiler (wing?) A small old Mercedes badge pop out. Importantly, it's special than other Mercedes. (Expect: C63 BS, Hammer, R63, Benz"First actual production car in human history") So if you actually read comments from old. Leave me a reply tell me what you think Or simply make a video for it. Guess I just gave you an idea of a new video
