Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Video Review

Black Series returns in spectacular fashion, as we discovered on circuit ahead of customer deliveries

AMG knows how to make range-topping supercar. Its Black Series models are the stuff of legend. And this, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, is its latest creation.

Based on the Mercedes-AMG GT-R, the GT Black Series has a lot more power – some 544kW, which is good enough to propel it from 0-100km/h in 3.2sec and onto a top speed of 325km/h.

That’s thanks in part to a shift of the fabled 4.0-litre V8, which moves from a cross-plane crank to a flat-plane crank, letting it rev higher. But it’s also down to some astonishing new aerodynamic efficiency, created by the same aerodynamicist who designed the AMG GT GT3 race car.

Priced at $796,900 plus on-road costs, the latest Black Series will be an exclusive sight. We took to the Lausitzring in Germany for a wild ride in AMG’s latest creation.
