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