More details emerge on the Mercedes SLS Black Series revealing new interesting facts on this super Benz.
The main highlight of the car is its engine, of course, which is a souped up version of the same naturally-aspirated 6.3 liter AMG V8. According to German magazine AutoBild, this power plant will be tuned at 650 hp in the SLS Black. That’s 80 more than the standard.
This car is not designed to monster Ferraris and Lamborhginis on the race track, but to provide the driver with a huge amount of fun. Black Mercs are not among the fastest in their class, but they dish out more fun than any of the rivals. That’s why it is OK for them to have swollen wheelarches and massive spoilers.
The other big news regarding the SLS Black is about the roadster version. Apparently Mercedes will also introduce a Black Series SLS Roadster. That will be the first drop-top Black.
