Mercedes' SL65 AMG Black Series takes its first dyno runs

>> Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Buyers of the 2010 Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series coupe will be happy to know they are getting what they paid for, as Automobile has proved with its hands-on dynamometer testing of the car. Generating 573hp and 682lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels, the car's big V12 will still have its work cut out for it when drivers start aiming for the claimed 3.9 second 0-60mph (96km/h) time. By way of comparison, the Corvette ZR-1 weighs about 700lb (320kg) less than the SL65 AMG Black Series yet generates very close to the same amount of crank horsepower: 638hp (476kW) for the 'Vette, versus 651hp (485kW) for the Mercedes.
