SL65 AMG Black Series details revealed

 The online editors of Motor Trend decided to give up and give us the confirmed specs for the SL65 black series. AMG has cranked an extra 66 hp out of the twin-turbo six-liter V12, now boosted up to 670 hp. The Benz has some weight reduction due to the new carbon fiber roof top. The total curb weight is now down to a still manageable but still high for a sports car  4,080 lbs, which is still in SUV territory for a two-seat sportscar or near what a BMW 7 series would be around. Carbon fiber is also features on the flared front fenders, hood, rear underbody diffuser and racing buckets. That reduced weight is sprung on fully adjustable coils with an electro-hydraulic Active Body Control suspension and one-piece forged alloys wearing Dunlop Maxx GT tires in 265/35ZR-19 dimensions up front and 325/30ZR-20 out back.

A deployable rear spoiler, flat-bottomed steering wheel and Alcantara-clad interior also factor into the package, which Mercedes says would be capable of hitting 220 mph if it didn't electronically limit it to 186 (300 km/h), but 0-60 will come in the three-second range. Only 350 examples will be made in either silver, white, black or red.[Source:Auto Blog Via Motor Trend]
