Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

Filed under: Hybrids/Alternative, Sports/GTs, Etc., Green, I.C.E., Tech, Mercedes-Benz

That's the way it goes with fashion: it's on the runway in Paris in March and in a bucket at Big Lots by September. Mercedes-Benz' in-house tuning arm, AMG, has decided to turn with the popular tide and call time on horsepower brinkmanship, with the division boss saying, "We are going to use other ways to extract better performance, including weight saving, engine optimization and alternative technologies."

What's the new fashion? Getting the most out of the least. AMG is going to do that by losing weight, installing tech like the SL63 AMG's wet clutch gearbox on the coming E63 AMG, and possibly re-engineering Mercedes' diesel, hybrid, and four-cylinder engines for AMG duty.

Not too long ago, imagining an A-Class AMG would have been beyond comprehension, but this is the future. We just hope everyone has thought through the consequences: with the reins being pulled on increasingly powerful motors, this is going to put a lot of horses out of work. And that makes the possibility of an equine industry bailout something we can't rule out...

There is a local guy close to me that has a SL65 and I wanted to run him in my Evo. He wouldnt do it.

Sissy... lol

When my buddy saw the car he was like "That thing is so baller!" I was like yeah..." imagine how baller it would look getting spanked by a 4cylinder 4 door." The guys wife is SMOKIN hot though. I give him props on that but not all too impressed with the car. Then again... he has like 60 other cars to pick from. lol He's loaded to say the least!

That was way cool, looked like the CRX was lining up beside a Porsche toward the end.

In the vid I think the Porsche was pulling away but I had read the Porsche was a highly modified race/track car... still pretty cool and funny to see that CRX spank that lambo. also why in the heck are you up at this hour?!?! it's like 4am for you man..
