Updates on the Development of the Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series

Giancarlo Perlas October 26, 2019

The much-anticipated Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series makes its appearance again online. This time, the car was seen cruising at the Nurburgring track rigged with sensors.

The video starts with a series of semi-camouflaged Mercedes-AMG GT R cars that are donning special accessories and sporting different configurations. The cars are equipped with two kinds of hood designs wherein one was noticeably fitted with large nostrils on the hood and small slits on the sides.

Along the way, another AMG GT R cuts past the cars that are being test-driven. It stood out among others because of the large rack on its roof that holds a couple of sensors in place.

It looks like Mercedes is testing various aerodynamic configurations for the AMG GT R or even the Black Series variant of it as hinted by the overly aggressive look that the units are carrying. Among the tests probably involve testing the different suspension setups for the car and simulation of emergency lane changes.

Earlier, AMG boss Tobias Moers already hinted that the Black Series will be fitted with something he called, “Not a typical V8.” He didn’t explain further but his statement suggests that the Black Series might push its performance beyond the 700 hp mark. It should be noted that the most potent version of the AMG GT range today is its GT 63 S Four-Door Coupe with 639 hp, so the promised numbers are not far-fetched.

Expect the official unveiling of the Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series in the middle of next year. For now, we will keep our eyes peeled for more updates about it.
