As the world patiently waits for the roll-out of Mercedes-AMG’s SL, it seems that motoring enthusiasts are finding comfort in old Merc’s more than ever before, such as this pristine 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series that’s landed on PCARMARKET.

The SL 65 AMG Black Series takes the already hardcore 6.3-liter V8 SL 63 AMG, let alone the beefier SL 65 AMG, and completely reworks these to become the monster that it stands as today. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged six-liter V12 producing 661 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque, which is good for a 0-60 MPH sprint of just 3.6 seconds, despite all that power being sent to the rear wheels alone.

For Mercedes-Benz, the Black Series marked the most hardcore of any of its cars, and today the badge can only be found on its flagship Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, which retails for over $400,000 USD — if you can get your hands on one. With that being said, the SL 65 AMG Black Series above would make a rather convincing alternative, as it has just 11,000 miles on the clock which has resulted in the car being immaculate inside and out.

Take a closer look at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series above, and check out the listing on PCARMARKET before it ends in just over two days. Currently, the bid sits at $350,000 USD.

In other news, the Alfa Romeo 8C is on its way to also becoming a future classic.
