Back to Black
The most powerful AMG Mercedes ever, the SL65 Black, hits London’s mean streets

The Black is wide. Literally, figuratively. The longer you look at it, the more it seems to swell, to flex its anabolically enhanced flanks. Cast your eyes down from the roof: the top half of the Black's silhouette is stock SL - petite, proportioned, sensible, albeit with a carbon-fibre fixed roof (complete with integral roll cage) replacing the stock folding hard-top - but hit the top of the arches and it all goes steroidal. There's a full handspan of flare on either side, the stance of a gym-obsessed bulldog in Eighties shoulder-pads.
