Scooped: Mercedes SLS Black Out and AboutMonday, January 28, 2013 12:06 by Arman Barari
The Black Series version of Mercedes SLS AMG is one of the rarest sports cars the German manufacturer makes. This is the first time we get to see the car out and about in the real world, and we have to say it looks much better up close than in the press pictures.
Scooped in Barcelona, this SLS Black is finished in a special shade of yellow AMG calls Solar Beam. Most of the aero parts though, including the rear spoiler and diffuser and the front splitter, are finished in clear carbon. Can’t help but think it would look much cooler in full black.
In the SLS Black the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine generates a power output of 464 kW (631 hp) at 7400 rpm and accelerates the most dynamic gull-wing model of all time to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. The coil-over AMG RIDE CONTROL performance suspension, the AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system and the weight-optimised forged AMG light-alloy wheels with newly developed sports tyres combine with the electronically controlled AMG rear-axle differential lock and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission.
