Yes the SL65 Black Series is clearly the favorite in the Black Series popularity contest amongst Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. But let’s not forget the CLK63 Black Series that’s just as menacing and and exotic as the SL. Perhaps sportier and a little more mild than the SL equivalent, the CLK63 Black Series still holds racecar-bred technology for the road.
These photos recently surfaced with the photographer claiming it’s the only factory matte silver CLK63 Black Series. Not only is the photography stunning though, but we’re surprised how well the matte silver worked on the car. There’s still a sense of luxury to the finish that offers a little bit of elegance, versus the aggressiveness matte black offers on a car.
And if you’re looking for some info on the CLK63 Black Series, know that it pumps out 507-hp at 7200 rpm and 465 ft-lbs of torque at 5250 rpm out of its 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to AMG’s Speedshift 7G-Tronic transmission. So next time you think there’s only a SL Black Series because that’s all we ever see, remember this elegant yet sporty and enticing CLK63 Black Series.
