    Re: Africa's first 65 black series has arrived

    reginos:

    This car is for die hard M-B fans (and there plenty all over the world) who want to own the most powerful and wild SL. Another prerequisite IMO is for the potential buyer to like tuners' cars because this version is the closest a factory car can get to a tuners' offering.

    There will be plenty of buyers although personally I wouldn't buy such a car even if I could afford it. It's like Porsche producing a version that looks like a Gemballa.

    Re: Africa's first 65 black series has arrived

    It's an auto, correct?

    That right there kills it off in most reviewers minds and some here. It's not for wanna be GP drivers. 

    If you watch the video, I see a car that has 0 body lean on very fast corners and transitions well.

    As for the looks I like it in pics, it is close to 80's/tuner but not quite. I think they molded everyting just right and avoided a stuck on look.

    I think it will be a collectable.


    Re: Africa's first 65 black series has arrived

    That is precisely why I did not even bother at looking at one. Price is too ludacris for a "SL" irregardless of what ever was changed or done to it. The same for me when they brought along the CLK DTM. It's just not worth the money for a "CLK/SL".

    Too many other nicer vehicles could bought instead for the same or less price.

    Great comment! And I still can understand it as for almost the same priuce you can find "almost new" SLRs. They perform the same bad but at least have something special.

    Isn't the SLR already cheaper to get than this Black Series thing? Smiley

    Maybe a used SLR, and regardless the Black is supposed to perform better. The SLR is just to lumpy and too GT, this car is more focused on performance. nevertheless its still just a SL and still overpriced.
