Drawing some inspiration from the racing version of the SLS AMG GT3, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Black Series packs quite the punch. The fifth AMG vehicle in the high-performance Black Series line sports a 6.3L V8 that gives the car a whipping 631 horsepower at 7400 rpm, and it is equipped with other topnotch features that make the car worthy of the Black Series name. This gullwing is built for performance, and this is reflected in the 3.6 seconds it takes the vehicle to go from 0 to 100 kph, as well as the top speed of 315 kph or around 196 mph. This amazing acceleration is backstopped by… Continue Reading »

Although no concrete details have emerged as yet, Mercedes-Benz Black Series fans are pretty assured of the upcoming appearance of a Black Series SLS. It’s all but logical that Mercedes and AMG’s highest performing car would get a hardcore iteration. And we’ve seen evidence of this upcoming hellion with the SLS prototype that burned down at the Ring. With any high performance variant, the primary question that’s always asked is, how much does it make? In the Black Series SLS’ case, the answer is 630 horsepower, according to insiders. This is an outstanding figure, considering that the hand-built type M159 found in the “run-of-the-mill” SLS already belts out 590 horsepower…. Continue Reading »
At the Nurburgring, an SLS Black Series prototype that was testing burned down almost completely. But this is the reason Mercedes-Benz tests, and retests, its vehicles. To remove the possibility of any catastrophe befalling any would-be owners. As the top-performing model in Mercedes’ array of cars, the SLS is already an extreme performance car. In case you haven’t noticed, it has become a perennial frontrunner in GT3 races. With that kind of pedigree, a Black Series SLS for the road is but a natural progression. Since all Black Series models are hardcore versions of Mercedes cars, no one knows as yet which component of this extreme SLS was responsible for… Continue Reading »
Not many years ago, mentioning the Nurburgring would, ordinarily, produce associations of Porsches, M3s, even Nissan Skylines, redlining their engines at the Green Hell. Now, having a good lap time at the Ring is practically a prerequisite for a car with sporting pretensions, and fastest laps times are a hotly contested issue – remember Porsche and Nissan duking it out regarding the R-35’s times? But Mercedes is not a company to play that game. Instead, it lets its cars do the talking, as exemplified by the various Black Series models that have stormed the imaginations and favorite roads of motorheads everywhere. This attached video shows a Black Series CLK63 doing… Continue Reading »
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is all over the web now. Months before its debut, there are lots of spy photos of the ultimate car, all because of the rigid testing that the car manufacturer is doing to ensure that it will be one of the best cars that the world will ever see and ride. Seen in Nurburgring most of the time, the wider body kit Black Series is set apart from the standard SLS AMG. The rear diffuser is updated and it is also said that the V8 engine will output more than 600HP. No updated information about it yet, but expect it to come real soon…. Continue Reading »
Having been privileged to ride shotgun in a Mercedes-Benz quite recently, I was awed by the extreme comfort I felt despite my driver gunning it in first gear. The auto shifted into second gear so seamlessly that only veteran manual drivers would be able to tell that an upshift actually occurred. I’m definitely a fan of German engineering, especially with the brand. However, most Mercedes-Benz drivers only get to see the light side of the tri-pointed star. For the adventurous few, there is the dark side which can only be uncovered by pushing the envelope. And the C63 AMG Black Series makes pushing the envelope so much easier. The video… Continue Reading »
The Mercedes SL is one of the most famous Mercedes vehicle. Despite of some claims that this car is nothing but a ‘petrol- eater’, it still became a benchmark for beauty and power. This video will take you to see the new Mercedes SL, the SL65 AMG Black Series, which ironically is in red. The color though, increases the beauty and appeal of this car, don’t you think?
