Mercedes-Benz announced the official pricing of the SLS AMG Black Series in the U.S. market, and if cut straight to the chase, it is $275,000. You have to pay another $1,800 for destination and handling charge, and the bill can grow bigger and bigger if you hit the AMG Performance Studio and start customizing you car.

The basic 275 grand SLS Black is fitted with all you need though, and then some. A large part of the money you pay is for the AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine that generates a power output of 622 hp at 7,400 rpm and accelerates the most dynamic SLS of all time to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. But you do get the same engine in a normal SLS, albeit with 30 less horsepower. So what sets the Black apart and justifies the price premium?

First of all, it’s the Black Series badge. The Black department in AMG is like the SAS in the British Army, or Delta Force in the U.S. Army. They are the elites. The Black Series Mercs are also very rare, and that makes them exclusive. Then we have the unique styling of these models, which may look a bit infantile, but is fun. And then there is the way they drive.

The SLS Black is lighter than the normal car and has different chassis ans suspension settings. The software that controls the car’s behavior is also weakened in this version to make it naughtier. All that result in an unforgettable driving experience on both road and track.
