Veilside Black Fortune is one impressive Mercedes-Benz SL

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 19, 2012

If you already own a Mercedes-Benz SL and you’re not too impressed by the 2013 SL-Class, which was unveiled last week at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, we have a solution for you that will make your neighbors envy you. Veilside, a well-known Japanese tuning company, revealed last weekend at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon its vision of the Mercedes-Benz SL.

Honestly, we are surprised by the results as the vehicle looks like a SL65 AMG Black Series, featuring a new custom body kit consisting of a new front bumper, a new hood, enlarged front and rear fenders, side skirts, a rear trunk spoiler but also a new rear bumper with new air inlets and a custom carbon fiber air diffuser and exhaust system.

The new tuning programme for the Mercedes-Benz SL is called Black Fortune, don’t know why, because we’d say that Yellow Fortune was a better name.

The good news is that this custom SL retains its folding roof mechanism, which means you can transform it into a convertible at the push of a button. This is an advantage comparing it with the SL65 AMG Black Series, as that model was offered only as a coupe. Regarding the price of the Veilside Black Fortune, you will find a $30,000 sticker but also a limited edition of just 300 units.
