Mercedes-AMG has officially revealed the high-end super sports car version of the gull-wing model, the new SLS AMG Coupé Black Series. Just like other Black Series models, the 2014 model brings more power, the uprated AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine generates a power output of 464 kW (631 hp) at 8,000 rpm and accelerates to 60 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds, and onward to a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h).
“The new SLS AMG Black Series is a perfect study in the one hundred percent transfer of technology and engineering from motorsport to road. We have drawn inspiration from the worldwide success of the SLS AMG GT3 customer sport racing car on both a conceptual and a technological level. Boasting numerous lightweight components and fascinating dynamics, our fifth Black Series model guarantees pure, unadulterated ‘Driving Performance.’ The SLS AMG Black Series is the ultimate choice for fast laps and a highly emotional driving experience,” says Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
Debuting at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2014 SLS AMG Black Series goes on sale next summer, but Mercedes has yet to announce pricing or production numbers.
