Mercedes SLS Black Series To Be Available In 2013

Mercedes’ Black Series variants have established themselves as the most hardcore development of a particular model. These raw-edged cars forsake the pampering luxury Mercedes-Benz is known for, providing  instead an unadulterated driving experience that few will ever experience on a daily basis. As a result, Black Series models have become objects of desire and it is not uncommon to see production runs sold out weeks after they are announced. Coming in 2013 will be one of the ultimate Black Series variants to be ever made, as that will be when the SLS Black Series is slated to be produced.  And to be worthy of that badge, the 6.2 liter engine… Continue Reading »

Drool-Worthy C63 AMG Black Series Video

We recently reported that Australians have bought out the entire allocation for that continent’s C63 AMG Black Series within weeks of its announcement. And to show the rest of the world what a desirable animal it is, here’s  a video of it to further whet our appetites. To recall, the C63 Black Series has been blessed by AMG with a 6.3-litre V8 developing 517 horsepower. 457 lb.ft. of tire melting torque accompanies that output, with the company’s AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed  rounding out the powertrain. 19-inch wheels and a sports exhaust round out the aggressive-looking and -sounding package. If you can get yourself on the list of lucky buyers, the… Continue Reading »

Australians Buy Out C63 AMG Black Series

On the heels of the news that Mercedes beat BMW in North American sales last month comes another uplifting report, this time from the land down under. There, the entire allocation for the C63 AMG Black Series has been snapped up. Announced only in the first week of November and for delivery in April 2012, the overwhelming response has caught the local managers there by surprise. Says Richard Emery, General Manager Sales, Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars, “I can’t say I’m surprised but we’re certainly overwhelmed by the quick response. We’ll continue to work with AMG to secure more vehicles as not only have we sold out of our C 63 AMG… Continue Reading »

C63 AMG Estate Black Series Spyshots

Some people are suckers for fast station wagons and we at BenzInsider are not averse to a well sorted one, specially if it’s a smallish estate, as they’re more commonly known now. Auto Evolution has reported capturing a C63 AMG Black Series prototype in the flesh with the pictures to prove it. As the bigger Audi S6 and M5 Touring cars have demonstrated, there is a niche market for these types of cars which a Black Series Estate can perfectly fill. Imagine the gapes of wonder a wagon with a 6.2 liter V8 pumping 517 horsepower to the wheels will produce. Transmitting all that power will be Mercedes’ excellent 7-speed… Continue Reading »

Spyshots of the SLS AMG Black Series

Flared fenders front and rear with upgraded brakes and huge wheels. Carbon fiber body work that makes it lighter. An upgrade on power of up to 650bhp. What is this? The SLS AMG Black Series, a lighter and faster gullwing vehicle that will retain its 6.2 liter V8 was spotted in Nurburgring. Enjoy the spyshots, but if you can afford its reported price tag of $500,000, then you probably start drooling and hoping that this would be released soon. Photo Source: Autoevolution.com

Europe Only SLS AMG Homologation Special To Be Released

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… Continue Reading »

Matte Red SL65 AMG Black Series Spotted In Dubai

Looks like its the season for sporty red Mercedes vehicles, as this matte red Black Series SL65 has been spotted in Dubai looking like the hardcore sports car from AMG that it is. Originally produced in a glossy red, this SL65 AMG got its color change through the use of a vinyl wrap. The same treatment was also performed on the owner’s other grocery-getter, a Ferrari 599 GTO. Despite the matte finish, the car still manages to grab attention by the bucketful, with its black wheels, retactable rear spoiler and undoubtedly aggressively throaty sound. This is produced by the beautiful 670 horsepower biturbo V12 powerplant, which has sadly been abandoned… Continue Reading »
