The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is one of the wildest rides on the market, but for those who want a little extra, Renntech has just the ticket. With an upgraded ECU, intercooler and muffler system, power jumps from a stock output of 670 horsepower to 801 horsepower. Even more impressive is the 1000 ft-lbs of torque put out by the Renntech car, elevating the SL65 from “mere” supercar status, to the highest echelons of the automotive world.
Only the Bugatti Veyron makes similar torque numbers, and its pricetag is more than double that of the SL65 Black Series. Renntech’s modifications add a $16,390 premium on top of the $246,299 retail price of the SL65 Black Series, but next to the $1,000,000 sticker of the Veyron, it looks like a bargain.
