Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series Revealed


Mercedes-Benz’s in house tuning outfit AMG took the sheet off of its latest creation today, the SLS AMG Black Series.

Under the hood lives the same 6.3-liter V8 that powers the regular SLS, which in this case makes 622 hp and 468 lb-ft or torque. That’s a jump of about 40 hp and a loss of about 10 lb-ft of torque, though it is still the most powerful combustion engine car in AMG’s lineup. The power is delivered through a DCT seven-speed automatic transmission.

The Black Series treatment also means the car loses about 150 lbs., thanks in part to the extensive use of carbon fiber in some chassis parts, and even in the interior. A titanium exhaust system as well as a new lithium-ion starter battery also contribute to the SLS’s diet. When it all comes together, the SLS AMG Black Series will make the sprint to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

Yellow is looking awesome, never imaged an SLS in this color but it works!
