Lightbulb VIDEO: Top Gear takes on the Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series

Filed under: Coupes, Videos, Supercars, Mercedes-Benz, UK, Celebrities


Click above to watch video after the jump

When Jeremy Clarkson has the keys to a 660 hp supercar, you know you're in for a heck of a ride. The affable BBC host took the reigns of twin-turbo V12-powered Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series, and we're pretty sure the Top Gear team needed to change its rather expensive tires at some time during the shoot.

The SL 65 AMG Black Series tore up the tarmac and even took on the company's own (much more expensive) McLaren SLR, but did Clarkson like it? Lets just say that he compared seat time in this super Benz to sitting on a pile of stones. It seems having 740 lb-ft of torque at your beckoning call isn't always a good thing, either. Oh, the horror. Hit the jump to watch for yourself.

Crap, the link is gone.

I saw an S65 AMG parked outside my office a few days ago and someone told me it was a Black series S class. Is that correct?

Don't think so...the only Black Series that i've seen produced are the SLK, CLK and SL.
