Chris Harris drives the Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
This new episode of DRIVE sees Chris Harris heading to France’s Paul Ricard Circuit to put the new SLS AMG Black Series through its paces. But first, he gives us a great insight into this more extreme version.

Weight-saving measures include a carbon fibre driveshaft, 15 kg lighter seats, a 17 kg titanium exhaust system and a featherweight lithium-ion battery; all contributing to the Black Series’ 70 kg reduction to 1,550 kg.

Powered by a revised version of the regular SLS’s 6.2-litre V8, the Black Series has 464 kW (622 hp) and 635 Nm of torque at its disposal; enough for a 3.6 second sprint to 100 km/h and a 316 km/h top speed.
