The Art Collection - Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series

There are four parts to this series each featuring a very rare and unique piece of automotive art. You may find it weird that on a performance oriented website we're calling cars such as these "Art" - Beauty resides in the eye of the beholder, and for the man who these cars belonged to, that's exactly what they were. While you may be astonished at the specs these cars boast, consider for a moment the unique qualities that each possess.

They were not used to thrash about on the track and cause all kinds of mayhem in the quiet residential streets by their home, instead they were appreciated for their design, and loved and cared for with the utmost respect and attention to detail.
