Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG BiTurbo by INDEN Design
The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG V12 BiTurbo has been a rockstar of a roadster since its debut in 2004. In its natural state, the car has few equals, which is why it has been such an attractive platform for tuners to celebrate. German tuning haus INDEN Design has decided to take another pass at making this Merc even better, this time going with their ‘black sapphire’ look.
Joachim Inden adds a new front apron with ventilation holes, a revised hood, flared fender arches, side skirts as well as a new rear spoiler and apron with integrated rear diffuser. With the fatter inner wheeler arches in place, the company shoehorns in a set of 3-piece INDEN Champion wheels measuring 20×11 in front and 20 x 13 in rear wrapped with rubber rated at 265/30R20 and 325/25R20 respectively. The Inden-Design SL 65 AMG features an electronic control module that can drop the ride up to 45mm.
Performance tuning efforts manage to coax 671 hp out of the 6.0L V12 engine and the removal of the speed limiter allows this Merc to fully stretch its legs. This is an impressive jump from the 604 hp rating in stock form. All we know is that Black Sapphire exhaust pipes were installed. And inside, an Alcantara sports steering wheel makes an appearance. We’ll having to wait until the INDEN Design Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG make its debit and Tuning World Bodensee to get the full details. Also, there is no word yet on cost. That said, the base price of the 2011 model in the US is $198,750.
