Inspired by the SLS AMG GT3 racing version, the fifth Black Series model from Mercedes-AMG boasts a fascinating mix of breathtaking design, outstanding driving dynamics and uncompromising lightweight construction in accordance with the 'AMG Lightweight Performance' strategy.
With a kerb weight of 1550kg, the SLS AMG Black Series achieves a power/weight ratio of 2.45kg/hp.
The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine generates a power output of 631hp at 7400rpm and accelerates the most dynamic gull-wing model of all time from 0 to 100kph 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 seven-speed sports transmission - featuring an uncompromisingly emotional shift and response times - to raise the SLS AMG Black Series to a new level.
The AMG Aerodynamics package is optionally available to further boost the vehicle's driving dynamics.
Black Series is a name that resonates with automobile experts and enthusiasts.
Following on from the SLK 55 AMG Black Series from 2006, the CLK 63 AMG Black Series (2007), the SL 65 AMG Black Series (2008) and the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series (2011), the fifth exponent sees the Black Series entering a new dimension with the gull-wing model.
"The new SLS AMG Coupé Black Series is a perfect study in the one hundred percent transfer of technology and engineering from motorsport to the road," said Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
"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 fantastic driving dynamics, our fifth Black Series model guarantees pure, unadulterated 'Driving Performance'.
"The SLS AMG Coupé Black Series is the ultimate choice for fast laps and highly emotional driving experiences."
