German tuner mcchip-dkr decided to fiddle around with a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series and increase its power.

As if the regular SLS AMG Black Series wasn't powerful enough, the aftermarket specialists from mcchip-dkr worked on the 6.3-liter V8 engine and bumped its output from the series 622 PS (457 kW) to no less than 654 PS (481 kW). The torque figure is also up by 1 Nm to 649 Nm (479 lb-ft) and all these power upgrades were obtained by remapping the engine's ECU which has also lowered fuel consumption.

The tuner is asking 3,199 EUR for its stage 1 kit which implies they are already working on a more potent stage 2 package addressed to a limited crowd since the SLS AMG Black Series is a niche model which has been discontinued to make room for the smaller and cheaper AMG GT.
