Video: Renntech takes Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series to 805 HP and 1,000 lb-ft | Rpmgo.com



The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is one extremely powerful ride. Still, we were already treated to an upgraded take, courtesy of tuning company Brabus, who tuned the massive 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 to 800 HP in its Vanish package.

The guys at Renntech, though, believed there’s still a bit of potential left in the MB hard-top roadster, and went to work on the car. The result? An 805 HP Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series, capable of a whopping 1,000 lb-ft of torque at the crank.

How did the tuning company achieve such an astonishing increase? Through an optimized ECU, new intercooler pumps and sports mufflers. Also, the price for the package is a pretty reasonable $16,390. The company does recommend you install other upgrades like a new transmission and a limited-slip differential, so you might write a bigger check, just to be sure.
