Powered by a revised version of the regular car’s AMG 6.2-litre engine, the forged pistons, connecting rods and lightweight crankshaft have been borrowed from the SLS 63 AMG, resulting in an improved output of 373 kW (507 hp) and 610 Nm of torque – an increase of 37 kW (50 hp) and 10 Nm.
On the road, the Coupe and Saloon versions crack 100 km/h in a Black Series-matching 4.2 seconds (Estate 4.3s), with all three variants limited to a 280 km/h (174 mph) top speed thanks to the inclusion of the AMG Driver’s package.
Other standard features include the high-performance composite braking system with 360 x 36 mm front discs and six and four-piston calipers in red, an aluminium Black Series ventilated hood, darkened headlamps, lightweight 19-inch AMG alloys, gloss black radiator grille and mirror casings, matt graphite grey side stripes and a boot lid spoiler for the Coupe and Saloon. Moving inside, the cabin features designo leather/DINAMICA upholstery, an Alcantara-trimmed AMG performance steering wheel and “Edition 507” badging.
Orders begin this April, with deliveries starting in June. Notable optional extras include a designo magno platinum paint finish, a locking differential, AMG Performance suspension and carbon-fibre/high gloss black piano lacquer-look trim.
