After years of speculation, Mercedes has confirmed plans to build an SLS AMG Black Series.

Speaking with Motor Trend, Tobias Moers - Director of Vehicle Development at Mercedes-AMG GmbH - said "We absolutely have to do a Black Series" of the SLS.  He declined to give additional information, but previous reports have indicated the car could have a revised 6.3-liter (6,208cc) V8 engine with approximately 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) and 677 Nm (499 lb-ft) of torque.

Tobias also said the SLS AMG GT3 won't be coming to America and the company hasn't decided if the 2013 SLS AMG E-Cell will make the transatlantic trip either. The latter bit of information is surprising, but the company could be playing coy in an attempt to build up excitement.
