If you’re itching to burn cash for a 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series, you’re in luck. At least two Melbourne luxury car dealers are selling each one of the rarest Mercedes-Benz models.

Based on a report from Motor, Australia’s Lorbek Luxury Cars and Dutton Garage each have a 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series in their facilities, and they are willing to let go of these rare cars. Mercedes has already confirmed that these are two of the seven cars delivered to Australia and New Zealand. Yes, imagine that, there are only seven of these in Australia and New Zealand.

According to the dealers, these two cars are in top condition, though the one from Duttons appears to be the one you should pick if you’re a collector. It’s more prestigious because of the fact that this AMG car only traveled 900 kilometers during its eight-year lifespan. From being a new car, it only passed by the hands of two owners.

Since there are only seven of these Black Series in Australia and New Zealand, it’s really a car collector’s dream to have two options for one of the most opulent and rarest cars Mercedes-Benz ever created.

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine that produces 493kW and 100Nm of torque. It can go to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds. In 11 seconds, the Black series should be able to reach 200km/h.

Mercedes claims that the engine could have reached 1,200Nm without the limiter, and that’s plenty enough for a car that weighs 1,870kg. That’s 250kg lighter than the non-Black series, the SL65 AMG.

The cars were originally bought for $400,000 in Australia, but the price tags are way higher now. The one by Lorbek is being sold for $547,980 while the one from Duttons is advertised as “POA” or price on asking.
