Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers confirms AMG GT Black Series is going to happen

There is indeed very good news for fans and enthusiasts of Mercedes-Benz’s AMG GT range: a Black Series is coming to town. This was according to a report by Australian Web site Motoring, citing AMG big boss Tobias Moers. Most likely, it would be an Mercedes-AMG GT R with a Black Series badge.

Mercedes commenced sales of the AMG GT in 2015. Since then, a number of versions appeared like the AMG GT S, AMG GT R, GT Roadster, GT C Roadster. The GT and the GT S were face-lifted this year. While all of these GT models were powered by a four-liter M178 twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, the tuning for each version was different. When the original GT was released around two years ago, the power rating was only pegged at 462 PS (340 kW; 456 bhp) of max output and 600 Nm (440 lb.-ft.) of peal torque.

When the AMG GT R was introduced, it changed the complexion of the GT Series by boasting of whopping power figures -- 585 PS (430 kW; 577 bhp) of max output and 700 Nm (520 lb.-ft. of peak torque. That was more than enough to send the high-performance GT R sprinting from nil to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 318 km/h (198 mph).

Mercedes-AMG C63 Black Series Coupe might make a comeback as early as 2018

The Black Series models by Mercedes-Benz could soon be back. Nothing is final yet, but there is a chance that in the near future, we could be seeing a new Black Series version of the Mercedes-AMG. The last time that the Mercedes-Benz had its Black Series range was during the 2014 model year with the SLS AMG and the 2012 model year with the Mercedes-AMG C63. Some are praying for Mercedes to unleash another Black Series model, and if these prayers would be heard, then we could say hello to a new one in the near future.

This comes as Tobias Moers, the top honcho at Mercedes-AMG, disclosed that he received word that the higher-ups at Mercedes are considering making “Black Series” out of an uncompromising car, and they are bound to provide the green light for this new project. He also revealed that the new Black Series will be derived from the C63. Tobias, however, did not discuss the body for the new Mercedes-AMG C63 Black Series. But considering that the previous C-Class Black Series was a coupe, it would not be a surprise if the next AMG C63 Black Series would be based on this body type.

While waiting for Mercedes to approve the new AMG C63 Black Series, let us take a quick look at the previous version. Unveiled in 2011, the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Coupe was regarded as the most powerful C-Class so far. This was primarily thanks to a stunning AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine that could develop 510 hp of max output and 457 lb.-ft. of peak torque. This powerplant allows the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Coupe to sprint from nil to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds. Power is sent to the rear wheels through the innovative AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports gearbox that boasts of four transmission modes.

According to AMG boss Tobias Moers, sooner or later there will be a Black Series version of the Mercedes-AMG GT, which means we shouldn’t expect the vehicle until 2018.

The 208mph Black Series version of Mercedes-Benz’s SLS AMG supercar was spied being tested at the Nurburgring. This Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series is more powerful but its weight is reduced. It is slated to go on sale in 2013 and is priced at 50% higher than the ‘standard’ gullwinged-coupe. Autocar believes that the automaker first thought about building a Black Series version of the SLS in 2006, which is when the standard AMG supercar started its development.

The SLS GT3 racer seen at the 2010 New York Motor Show displays the Black Series’ dramatic bodywork such as a large fixed rear wing, front splitter, rear diffuser and extra cooling on the bonnet, as well as a wider track.

In 2009, AMG engine boss Friedrich Eichler said that we could expect much more from the SLS’s 6.2-litre V8 engine, which boasts an output of 563bhp and 479lb ft when fitted in the standard car. According to sources, the Black Series may deliver around 600bhp and 500lb ft. Among the modifications that it’s expected to receive are a bigger air manifold, a higher compression ratio and reprofiled camshafts.

We now have a clearer idea of how a sedan version of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will appear after it was spied testing at the Nurburgring and as a rendering has been released by Piston Heads user Tuvra of the convertible Black Series. The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe was recently introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The rendering shows a new high-performance vehicle that has features that are similar to those of the SLS AMG GT3 customer sports car. It still has the titanium gray 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels while its body was given an anthracite tone to get that ominous look.

It’s believed that if Mercedes proceeds to build this radical convertible, it will be equipped with a 6.3-litre V8 AMG engine that has an output of 517 hp and 620 Nm (457 lb.ft.) of torque. It’s expected to be mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.

Auto Express reported that the AMG performance division of Mercedes-Benz is developing a high-performance, top-of-the-line SLS Black Series model. When AMG performance director Christoph Jung attended the launch of the new SLS Roadster last week, he told reporters that the company is “certainly thinking” about creating a model that is positioned between the SLS GT3 and the road car.

He said that the GT3 racing car features a 600bhp version of the standard SLS’s 6.3-litre V8 engine, which goes together with an aerodynamically enhanced exterior and stripped-out cabin.

This means that a roadgoing version would deserve the Black Series badge, which is typically used only for the quickest and most powerful AMG models. This badge has been seen on the 612bhp SL65 AMG in the past.

Mercedes-Benz will produce a SLS AMG Black Series. This move was confirmed by Tobias Moers, the Director of Vehicle Development at Mercedes-AMG. According a report, this vehicle is a sure thing. No official details have been give but it’s speculated that its 6.2-liter V8 engine would be modified to offer about 610 hp and 499 lb-ft (677 Nm) of torque.

In addition, Mercedes is working on another version of the SLS, the road-going version of its GT3 racing model, says MotorTrend. But unfortunately, a source said that this vehicle won’t be offered in the U.S. The car will be released in Europe for homologation, but since it doesn’t race in the U.S., there’s virtually no reason for it to be brought to the U.S.

Mercedes believes that only a very small volume would be sold and so it has decided not to bring it there. In addition, Moers said that the SLS E-Cell, the electric version of the car, will arrive in Europe in 2012 or 2013. It’s also likely not to be available in the U.S.

After few leaked photos, Mercedes-Benz unveiled today the 2012 C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series Coupe a.k.a. the most powerful C-Class of all time. We’ll get straight to the point and tell you guys that the new car comes with the impressive AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine delivering 380 kW (517 hp) and a maximum torque of 620 newton metres.

The engine is mated to the innovative AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission that transfers the power to the rear wheels. Four transmission modes, the double-declutching function and RACE START promise maximum motoring pleasure and a high degree of variability. In the “Sport plus” and “Manual” transmission modes the gear changes take a mere 100 milliseconds.

The engine can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds ( preliminary data). The power of the engine reaches the ground thanks to the 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels (255/35 R 19 on the front and 285/30 R 19 on the rear) painted in titanium grey and produced using particularly light forging technology – as is the case on the SLS AMG.
