The latest pictures of the Black Series, caught here testing at the Nürburgring, reveal its more aggressive front end with new air intakes and angled lower front bumper, and a new, fixed rear wing.
Power from the SLS AMG’s 6.2-litre V8 is understood to have been raised to around 650bhp. It sends power to the rear wheels through a beefed-up seven-speed transaxle.
Chassis changes include wider tracks, a lowered ride height and a reworked suspension system. Larger brakes are also fitted.
Mercedes is also celebrating the 45th anniversary of AMG with a special edition of its SLS AMG GT3 race car. Features include the same matt paint finish as the SL65 AMG 45th Anniversary model, and a 6.2-litre V8 that’s signed and even, in part, installed by Mercedes’ multiple DTM champion, Bernd Schneider. Just five examples of the SLS GT3 will be produced.
