Back in Black Series: Mercedes-AMG GT Black Will Be a 700-HP-Plus Track Monster
Some AMGs have a dark side, literally. They’re called Black Series, and they’re usually hardcore zeniths and prepared for the track of a given AMG model line, although “typical” may not be the right word to use. The Black Series are atypical, in the sense that they are quite rare; in recent years, only SLS AMG, SL65 and C63 (and less recently, CLK-based AMG before that) have received Black Series treatment in the United States. Black Series, but the wait for a new one is now over: here is the AMG GT Black, king of the AMG GT range.
Mercedes-AMG has released an official teaser for the GT Black that reveals the whole car. In the video we have a good overview of the AMG Panamerica style vertical slatted grill – which has inflated in massive proportions for this application and is undoubtedly inspired by the cup of the AMG GT3 racing car. There is also a really huge rear wing. Attention, Lamborghini SCV12, the race of supercars with shelves on their decks is heating up.
The Black Series carries additional ventilation, air ducts and other aerodynamic tricks which, while surely smart and functional, seem a bit, well, the aftermarket. Maybe it’s that funky money on top of the shiny black paint. Regardless, the Black Series are supposed to represent the craziest thought out of Affalterbach, so why not have a matching look?
It is rumored that the 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 in the AMG GT Black series will produce more than 700 horsepower, making it the most powerful production AMG ever launched on the streets. We’re just speculating here, but we think AMG will have successfully passed all of the engineering tricks in the book – like lighter, more powerful internal engines, more turbocharging, and a smoother exhaust – to achieve this power. incredible outing.
Hey, if McLaren and Ferrari can make similar-sized turbocharged V8s that produce more than 700 horsepower, Mercedes-AMG certainly can too. We expected nothing less from the all-new AMG Black Series, which should be the most extreme of the relatively small Black Series family it will join soon.
