Article by Christian Andrei, on November 12, 2012

Mercedes-AMG is introducing the new SLS AMG Coupé Black Series, the high-end super sports car version of the gull-wing model that takes inspiration from the SLS AMG GT3 racing version. The fifth Black Series model from Mercedes-AMG was designed in line with the "AMG Lightweight Performance" strategy and boasts “breath-taking design, outstanding driving dynamics and uncompromising lightweight construction.”

The SLS AMG Black Series offers a power/weight ratio of 2.45 kg/hp and has a DIN kerb weight of 1550 kilograms. It is powered by the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine that delivers 631 hp at 7400 rpm, enabling the most dynamic gull-wing model of all time to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds.

The SLS AMG Black Series is brought to a new level with highly emotional shift and response times from combining 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 tires with the electronically controlled AMG rear-axle differential lock and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission.

The AMG Aerodynamics package is available as an option to those who want to boost the vehicle's driving dynamics. Everyone knows what the Black Series is as it’s a name that automobile experts and enthusiasts recognize.

The fifth Black Series model offers a new dimension with the gull-wing model. Its preceding models were the SLK 55 AMG Black Series from 2006, the CLK 63 AMG Black Series from 2007, the SL 65 AMG Black Series from 2008 and the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series from 2011. The price of this breath-taking car hasn't been announced yet!
