Spy Shots: Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series goes testing in white

Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series

Our spy photographers have managed to wrestle their way into the inner pits of the testing world once again to capture the next Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series . But, unlike previous versions, the sports car has dropped its usual black garbs and opted for a very cool summer white skin.

The SLS AMG Black Series is still wearing camouflage, but when compared to a standard SLS AMG model, it still looks much more aggressive. The prototype caught testing is also wearing high-performance brakes and larger rear wheels, both of which are set to be used for the production version.

As for the engine powering this bad boy, rumors say that the current 6.3-liter V8 will be boosted up to an impressive 600-620 HP with a peak torque of 516 lbs-ft to boot.

The Black Series treatment will be applied for both the coupe and roadster versions, with both cars expected to be launched during 2013. Prices for the new version will start from about € 260,000, or about $318,000 at the current exchange rates.


I don’t like the combination of the color is not much better if you improve this kind of car added some parts.

Great! I love how it looks from the outside! I hope we get to see a closer look on its interior too. Additionally, I’d like to know how much it can perform although I already speculate that this would be dynamic!

Did they really mean it for confusion purposes? I’m surprised with that detail.

Ha ha. It’s funny to catch this Black series on a white exterior paint.

It’s prolonged bonnet will house the powerful engine that will give best performance of this Mercedes SLS AMG.

Fog lamps is not that frequent on Mercedes’s models I don’t know why.

There are modifications in intakes, spoilers, bumpers and a possible fog lamps.

So expect already changes from the front fascia like, air intakes, spoilers and its bumper.

@aaron lexus: Just wait and you’ll see how magnificent it is when it unleashed its cover.

I don’t like the color of the car. It is awkward on its design.

It has more embossed fenders that make it fatter than the standard SLS.

With the supercharged V8 engine, it is expected to have 205MPH of top speed and 3.6 seconds of sprinting time.

Though the long bonnet is still promising of a powerful engine, its performance will be its best shot.
