Among the throngs of supercars, classic cars and extreme racecars the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series managed to make an impression. Not only is this one of the best looking gullwings to boast the SLS AMG badge, it demolishes the 0-60 mile per hour sprint in a cool 3.6 seconds without appearing winded whatsoever. She also does not mind being leered at by passing men.
This is the most recent model to wear the coveted SLS AMG badge and it retains the same 6.2-liter powerhouse V8 with a few tweaks. Derived from the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT’s naturally aspirated 6.2 V8, the Black Series SLS AMG effortlessly produces around 196 horses, sending them to the rear. All of that power is then transferred to the road via Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Edition is not new to the scene, but her appearance at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed was certainly noteworthy to those in attendance and those eagerly awaiting live updates online. She is the 5th version, with the lineage as follows: European only SLK55 AMG Black Series in 2006, CLK63, SL65 and the C63. The base price is guestimated at around $250k and no more than 200 units are expected to make their way to U.S. shores, making this a very exclusive lady.
