Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series tested

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
Autoweek’s senior west coast editor Mark Vaughn recently headed to Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France to stretch the legs of the new Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series.

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.

Propelled by a revised version of the regular car’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.
