Well, I should mention that this wasn't in Calgary...and not on the streets. It was in a random auto show inside the atrium of an office building in the New York Financial District. Were models from MB, Audi, Jag, Bentley, Caddy, Tesla & Range Rover.

Really was not expecting a showing from a Black Series. Wasn't behind any ropes or anything despite the $300,000+ price tag. Pics do not do justice to the VERY agressive stance of this beast.

Bad ass. I love the SL though I dont like how Mercedes redesigned the front of the SL and left the rear alone.

These cars are absolutely unreal. Got passed by a CLK black series in California when I was riding up the 101; also an epic car.

Love them, reminiscent of the old SEC, one of the best looking cars Benz ever made.

It definately looks more concervative in black, kind of hides the exagerate lines a bit. But I think one of the best things about black series cars is you have to be in the know to figure out what its worth. Not for the typical lambo buyer :)

Agreed 100%, The new SL's look amazing.

SEC's were gorgous, for some curious reason I like the 82-85's over the 86+ ones.

Agreed, it's more of a "sleeper" supercar. That's totally why I'd want one. My mother would never know what it was or how fast it went, but all the beyond ballers would respect it.

Unfortunately none of the beyond ballers respect that your mom would prevent you from getting a more flashy supercar.

This is definitely my car of choice if I'm spending this much. The understatedness is all the more reason to get it, regardless of whether ExtraSlow's mom respects it or not. Black is the best color I've seen this car in. I'll take 2. :drool:

Thats so true. While I was there, a few people were walking around the MB displays, gawking at the other six-figure MBs (CL & S) This was till they came to the info sheet on this car. It wasn't a look of "wow", rather a concerned one that someone had mislabeled the price tag. No one was convinced that this 2-seater MB was worth more than the Bentleys displayed downstairs. :D

I know which one you're reffering to but it's a SL55 AMG with a widebody. But extremely sexy nonetheless. :drool:

Mercedes has come a long way since their Daimler days.
AMG has made Mercedes even better.
The Black Series lineup is just plain heresy.

Epic.

Not sure if there's any in Calgary yet. Lone Star had 1 allocation but couldn't find a buyer, and I think Toronto ended up taking it. Not sure about Hyatt.

It'll be a great car to own after someone else takes the 1st and 2nd year depreciation on it.

Top Gear did a review on it says it's not exactly the most comfortable car to drive. But man, does it look amazing! It's about as fast as a Gallardo if I'm not mistaken, and slower than the SLR.

So on that basis, why wouldn't people just go buy an SLR? Or are there any used SLR's on the market? I don't see the appeal of the SL65 Black, though I'm not in their target demographic.

09-19-2009, 02:04 PM
Because a lot of people don't like the SLR. It doesn't look exotic enough, it's comfy like a GT but can run with Carerra GT's, and has an automatic transmission with no LSD. It's like the car is trying to be way too many things at once.

This.

To the people in the showroom comparing this to a Bentley, (from a $$ standpoint): let them move right along, this car is worlds apart.

Fuck I want one. SO badass:clap: :clap:

Amazing looking Car :drool: :drool: , I think I seen a black one here in calgary a few months ago, it was at the airport arrivals level, at first I didn't recognise the model, because it was really low and wide, than I noticed how long it was and try to get pics when I realised what it was, but the lady driving it took off.:banghead: maybe it was another model.:eek:

Saw this car yesterday downtown. Looked great. At first I thought it was a black series as well but the car didn't look quite the same. There were no badges on the back to identify it either. Wish I had my camera with me.

I was told by a dealer in Mtl and a dealer in TO that they had the only two coming to Canada... one in Black and one in Palladium Silver.

Awesome car and will make a great buy at ~$100k in a few years :D

Good luck with that. Cars like this don't depreciate unless they're crashed.

And if my sarcasm meter is broken, and you weren't being serious, then disregard the above:)
