Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG by MR Car Design

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

German tuner MR Car Design calls it the 'Shining Star', it's own version of the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG.

The Erftstadt-based tuner does a little updating of the exterior on this 2005 SL with the addition of a new SLR inspired carbon bonnet from fellow tuner Kicherer. Optics also include a new rear bumper, black fender lights at the front and an new mid-mounted rear brake light in black too.

Upgrading takes place under the hood too, with a software tweaking of the ECU that adds 80 PS (79 bhp / 59 kW) and 110 Nm (81 lb-ft) of torque to the SL 65 AMG's standard output of 612 PS (450 kW/604 bhp) and 1,001 Nm (738 lb-ft) from the 6.0 liter twin-turbo V12 engine.

The V-max is also unlocked on the SL 65 AMG, a sport exhaust system is added and a suspension lowering by 30 mm is performed.

The car rides on 20-inch forged rims by Carlsson.

On the inside are custom-made Black Series dial lenses.
