SLS AMG Black Series Roadster by Binz's Inden Design Spotted

When AMG started offering Black Series variants of their already bonkers cars they unofficially set some unwritten rules about them.

The first rule is that a Black Series model equals unadulterated performance and exclusivity, with comfort always coming in second place.

The second rule has been a little bit harder to spot as Black Series models are so rare – they are always based on a Mercedes-Benz AMG coupe, so you will never see a Black Series Roadster or Cabriolet.

We're sure that a lot of you are aware of Binz's work, with their coach-built extra-long hearses and ambulances based on Mercedes-Benz cars having a history of over three quarters of a century.

Another company that spun off Binz in recent years is Inden Design, who are known for creating bodykits for Mercedes-Benz vehicles under the Binz umbrella, with most of their products not being exactly inline with the Binz philosophy.

Last Summer, Inden Design decided they will no longer tolerate the lack of an open top Black Series model and made one themselves, based on a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster.

In short, they just fitted a Black Series bodykit on the Roadster, since it would have probably been quite a bit more counter-productive to chop the roof of a real SLS AMG Black Series, fit it with the Roadster doors and reinforce the aluminium space frame.

Called Borrasca, the bodykit includes the rear exhaust tips as well, so the uninformed eye could easily think this is actually a Black Series version of the SLS AMG Roadster. In the following video you may see and hear the model, probably getting ready to be sent to the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
