For 2020, Mercedes–Benz is preparing a lot of spectacular premieres, one of the most striking, perhaps, will be the triumphant return of the Black Series version. Prototypes of the spiritual successor to the most powerful and lightest SLS AMG have come across more than once to photo spies during trials, and now key characteristics of the future news have surfaced on the Internet.
According to Double Apex, the updated turbo V8 that the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series will be equipped with will produce 721 hp. and 800 Nm, which is 136 hp and 100 Nm more than the current flagship of the family – the GT R. All torque will be transmitted to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch transmission.
It is specified that the novelty will be able to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in less than three seconds, and the maximum speed will exceed the mark of 320 km/h.
Another difference of the Black Series will be in the redesigned aerodynamic “plumage” and the most reduced weight. The extreme model will be released in a limited edition, by the way, someone is already trying to sell a place in the lineup for a supercar for an impressive 45,000 euros. At the same time, the cost of the car itself has not yet been specified, but it will obviously be higher than the current GT R.
