For those who want more than just a standard SLS AMG, Mercedes is about to unveil an even hotter version: the SLS AMG Black Series. After being caught testing around the Nurburgring, the car was recently taken out once again, this time for some tests during cold weather conditions.

Compared to a standard SLS, the Black Series will be lighter, deliver more power - rumored to be somewhere in the 650 HP area - and, of course, get an aggressive body kit. The spy shots reveal wider fenders and massive wheels, while the front bumper looks to have received bigger air intakes to push loads of fresh air into the rumored, revised 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine.

Tobias Moers, Member of the Board of Directors and Head of Vehicle Development for AMG, already confirmed that the company is hard at work on this model, so we should see it out sometime next year.

I just wish that there are more variants for its color.

The bumper must be one of the changes. Could it be lowered or they added extra air intake for better wind flow?

We can’t simply criticize this vehicle of the year. Mercedes can maintain the good reputation and positive responses on their cars. I can’t wait on their future developments.

Even covered in camouflage, we know it’s powerful. Guys don’t mess with this car.

As I took a glimpse at it, I presumed that it isn’t dynamic. I’ve been proven wrong by this.

What I like about this is its seemingly competitive built. As you can see, it tests during a cold weather.

I think the engine gives off more power than what it’s supposed to, and that’s what astounds me.

With that figure, I won’t expect it to be that powerful. However, Mercedes proved me wrong as it released its performance capability.

The curve of this SLS AMG is sexy and attractive. It is better if they release a hot red color of this model.

I’d like to see the outcome of this SLS AMG. The figure of this one is very compact and sporty, which is why I am fond of it.

For a V8 engine, that’s kind of beyond the limits! Some V12 engines can’t even give off that much.
