2011 INDEN DESIGN MERCEDES BENZ SL65 AMG BLACK SERIES
Since 2008, Mercedes-Benz has been producing a special edition version of the SL65 AMG referred to as the Black Series that comes with a fixed carbon fiber roof, a wide body kit, an upgraded V12 and several other performance and styling enhancements. In case you take place to like the look of the Black Series but prefer to maintain the retractable hardtop of the standard SL65 AMG, you might need to take a look at Inden Design’s latest tuning package.
The transformation begins on the outside with a new wide body kit that emulates the look of the SL65 AMG Black series with heavily beefed up wheel arches, new front and rear bumpers, boot lid spoiler, side skirts, as well as a new hood with twin air vents. The blacked out grille and 20-inch alloys shod in tires size 265/30 up front and 325/25 at the rear round off the adjustments.
Interior appointments are restricted to the flat-bottom steering wheel in Alcantara with the identical material partially covering the top portion of the instrument panel.
In European guise, the SL65 AMG’s 6.0-liter bi-turbocharged V12 churns out 612-horses and 1,000 Nm of peak torque, but immediately after Inden Design’s new ECU tune, output is lifted to 680HP, whilst the German firm also removes the electronic speed limiter.
A new exhaust system producing a much more sonorous sound and an electronic module that lowers the ride height by around 45 mm are the final touches of Inden Design’s tune.
