Who new Mercedes had a “Black Series”?

Designed as a replacement for the aging McLaren SLR and as a range-topper for Mercedes-Benz, the SLS AMG GT was designed and honed by the high-performance gurus at AMG. Using the 300SL Gullwing as inspiration gave the car its characteristic shape, and perhaps its most unique and iconic feature — gull-wing doors. It features a long hood and short rear deck, much like the 300SL.

The SLS AMG GT is an evolution of last year’s SLS AMG, and like that car, the only available engine is the same 6.2L V8 used in the SL63 and other AMG models, although here it’s been tuned slightly with dry-sump oiling, a reworked valvetrain and camshaft design, special tubular headers, a free-flowing intake and an improved exhaust system. The result is 583 hp and 479 ft-lb of torque, which pushes the SLS to 60 mph in an estimated 3.7 seconds and gives a top speed of 199 mph.
