We saw the new Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show and we have also seen it in action. Now it’s time to learn how the SLS AMG Black Series brochure is put together. Not exactly the same as seeing the car in action on the race track, but it is still an important piece to the supercar’s puzzle.

Watch the above video to get a good look at the editing that went into taking technical drawings and turning them into brochure-worthy images. It’s a pretty sweet video, despite the fact that we don’t get to see the SLS AMG Black Series scream around at all.

In case you forgot just how bad-ass the car is, it’s powered by an improved version of the 6.3-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 622 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 468 pound-feet of torque at 5,500 rpm. The supercar uses this monstrous power to hit a top speed of 195 mph.

Enjoy the video!

they sure worked hard enough to offer a great brochure for an even greater car. and they made it!

they are one of the biggest car companies. they cannot afford to make any mistake.

gary is right. and after seeing how much work they have put into it, they sure treat all matters seriously.

this kind of insight shows us how much importance they pay to all aspects of promoting a car.

does it really matter how they did it, as long as i came out great?

another think we miss here: the background. not easy to find, easier to make.

well, i am sure they know better. i think they could have afforded any of the options: computer modeling or taking pictures. i guess they chose the better one.

by looking at all the work they did, it did not look quite easy.

i guess not. they had the model of the car from designing it, so they could work on that quite easily.

wouldn’t it have been easier to take the picture of the car?

making the brochure of the SLS AMG black series never actually involved taking pictures of the actual car. that is a little strange, if you ask me.

thanks to the computer engineering, they never had to take the pictures actually.

  (542) posted on 12.9.2012

well, those are not just pictures taken of the car. they are much more.
