#ThrowbackThursday Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series


Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black SeriesWithin the rather levelheaded world of Mercedes-Benz there is a slightly mad performance devision named AMG. They spend most of their time making existing Mercedes harder and faster in order to complete with BMW’s M devision. These vehicles are at times rather bonkers, but what happens when an AMG engineer becomes feral? What happens when they evolve into something a bit too mad? They are shipped off to the Black Series department where cars such as this Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series are conceived.

Based upon the already brutish SLS AMG, the Black Series turns everything up to 11 in a way that is unique to this nameplate. Forget about this being a car, it is more a mobile cathedral of evil. Powered by a 6.2 litre naturally aspirated V8 engine, it first saw the light of day back in 2013. Imposing GT3 inspired bodywork joins the gullwing doors to form a biblical 622BHP monster. 0-62MPH in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series takes just 3.6 seconds and it will go onto 195MPH. New it would set you back £244,525.

Menacing, devilish, analogue, thirsty, carnivorous. The SLS AMG Black Series is all of these things and it doesn’t give a damn what you have to say about it…
