AMG for the win

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

Mercedes cars for some are the pinnacle. They are everything you could ever want in a car, and much more. If you have the money then buying one of Germany’s finest exports is a no-brainer. If you are a bit more flush then buying a Mercedes AMG is just as logical. And, if you are really making the cheddar then you cannot ignore buying a Mercedes AMG Black Series.

If you have £191,000 then buying the SLS AMG Black Series is the way forward. Lewis Hamilton, who drives for Mercedes F1 is a huge fan of this ‘wonder-car’ and you would be wise to follow his choice. His acute driving skills have put him in pole position to win the Formula One Drivers’ Championship in a few weeks’ time with BetFair and other bookmakers is a huge fan of this ‘wonder-car’, so you know you are under strong recommendation.

So what is it packing?

The SLS draws inspiration from the SLS AMG GT3 race car, which has won 37 races in GT3 since 2010. In short, it is a very, very speedy car.

As for the Black Series, its AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine is capable of churning out 631 hp – that is a whole 60 hp more than the regular SLS AMG GT Coupe – Mercedes have also managed to make it 70kg lighter than the coupe. The increased power and the lighter body mean that the Black Series is quick out the trap; it can reach 62 mph in 3.6 seconds.

Other additions to make the drive as enjoyable as possible include the AMG Speedshift DCT 7-speed sports transmission, AMG ride control suspension, electronically controlled AMG rear axle differential lock and AMG ceramic high-performance brake system. All of these factors together make for one completely unforgettable experience.

Inside the car you get the usual Mercedes treatment whilst retaining that air of sportiness, with bucket-seats and a carbon-fibre trim. The German company as always have used high-quality materials showcasing sublime workmanship and exquisitely designed details, yet have somehow managed to strip back. A Black Series exclusive is the so-called “3D Seam” which runs horizontally along the dashboard: an Alcantara strip features across the entire width of the leather covering.
