The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is one of those German
hyper-cars which is so immense in its performance capabilities
you'd think it would be left well alone by the tuning companies.
And for the most part that's true. However specialist Merc tuners
Brabus are always up for a challenge, and the SL65 AMG Black
Series is just their sort of car.
The Brabus T65 RS Vanish is the result. An 800 horsepower monster
with a top speed in excess of 200 mph, and a 0-62 mph time well
under 4 seconds. In fact the T65 RS Vanish is so quick off the
line it can hit 124 mph - about the top speed of a normal family
car - in just under 10 seconds.
The increase in power of nearly 140 hp over the standard SL65
AMG Black Series comes courtesy of the BRABUS high-tech twin
turbo system that includes two special exhaust manifolds with
integrated turbine housings and high-performance turbochargers.
Larger intercoolers are also added, as is a high-performance
sports exhaust with free-flow metal catalysts. The engine management

The T65 RS engine delivers 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW at 5,500

lb-ft), available already at a low 2,100 rpm. Peak torque is
limited electronically to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
The Brabus T65 RS Vanish package also includes changes to the
exterior, like the carbon-fiber hood scoop, and optional matt-black
paintwork. The interior can be custom tailored to suit the buyers
