Mercedes has announced pricing information for the 2014 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series. See how much it will cost inside
Mercedes has announced the SLS AMG Black Series will be priced from €249,900 when it goes on sale in Germany this June.
Described as a street-legal SLS AMG GT3, the Black Series is distinguished by an aerodynamic body kit that includes new bumpers, revised side skirts, flared fenders and a rear diffuser. The model also has tinted headlights, a carbon fiber rear wing and 19- / 20-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Power is provided by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that has been equipped with a "fully revised high-speed valve train with modified camshafts, adapted cam geometry and optimized bucket tappets featuring a special coating that is typically used on race vehicles." This enables the mill to produce 622 bhp (464 kW) and 468 lb-ft (634 Nm) of torque. The engine is connected to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch transmission which enables the 3,417 lb (1,550 kg) supercar to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h).
The supercar also features an AMG Adaptive Performance suspension, a locking rear differential and carbon ceramic brakes. Other highlights include a carbon fiber torque tube, a CFRP drive shaft and a lightweight lithium-ion battery. The latter modifications enable the car to weigh 154 lbs (70 kg) less than the standard model.
