MKB Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series image

German tuner MKB presents the 1.015 PS Mercedes SL 65 Black Series. The engine’s torque is limited to 1.300 Nm.

The engine conversion for one of the most powerful AMG engine demanded the long term experience of the whole engineering team at MKB.

“Our main goal with the new engine MKB P 1000 isn’t a new one. We simply want to give back the top speed performance to this SL with its high downforce-aerosetting. It should be v-max capable just like our other top speed efficient cars. And for this we need more than 800 engine horsepower,” points out MKB CEO Panagiotis Avramidis.


But, even 900 hp are not enough when you are holding the technological key for over 1.000 hp.
The package includes new air intakes, larger turbochargers, improved cooling systems, a revised ECU, and high performance camshafts. The company also modifies the automatic transmission and offers a variety of limited slip differentials.
The total cost for the engine tuning is € 116,800 in Germany including 19% VAT. The conversion takes up to three months.
