Mercedes has confirmed that it will be producing an SLS GT3 homologation special to qualify its supercar for various upcoming championships in Europe. Since homologation specials are very limited and thus very rare, don’t expect to be able to whip out your checkbook and order one. Specially if you live in a place called the U.S.A.
Mercedes has deemed that the documentary and legal requirements that need to be fulfilled to sell this street-legal race car in America are not worth the effort. At any rate, Mercedes-AMG’s Director of Vehicle Development, Tobias Moers has confirmed that the company will be producing the SLS AMG Black Series, so this hardcore variant should be able to satisfy most enthusiasts. The Black Series will have a minimum output of 610 horsepower, with handling to match and a much-improved power-to-weight ratio. Though not quite a homologation special, an SLS AMG Black Series is the next best thing to having one.
