Well here is the SLS AMG Black Series has just been made official and sports the Black Series moniker, After the extremes of cold winter testing in Sweden to the depths of Germany’s Nurburgring where it was literally tested to destruction.

Mercedes-AMG presents the high-end super sports car version of the gull-wing model, the new SLS AMG Coupé Black Series. Inspired by the SLS AMG GT3 racing version, the fifth Black Series model from Mercedes-AMG boasts a fascinating mix of breath-taking design, outstanding driving dynamics and uncompromising lightweight construction in accordance with the “AMG Lightweight Performance” strategy. With a DIN kerb weight of 1550 kilograms, the SLS AMG Black Series achieves a power/weight ratio of 2.45 kg/hp. The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine generates a power output of 464 kW (631 hp) at 7400 rpm and accelerates the most dynamic gull-wing model of all time to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. The coil-over AMG RIDE CONTROL performance suspension, the AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system and the weight-optimised forged AMG light-alloy wheels with newly developed sports tyres combine with the electronically controlled AMG rear-axle differential lock and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission featuring uncompromisingly emotional shift and response times to raise the SLS AMG Black Series to a new level. The AMG Aerodynamics package is optionally available to further boost the vehicle’s driving dynamics.

The uprated AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine generating a power output of 464 kW (631 hp) and 635 Newton metres of torque is a byword for thrilling driving dynamics, making the SLS AMG Coupé Black Series the most powerful AMG high-performance automobile with a combustion engine at present. Only the SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive with a maximum output of 552 kW comes with greater power reserves.
The SLS AMG Coupé Black Series accelerates to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. The top speed stands at 315 km/h. The additional 44 kW (60 hp) of power in comparison to the420 kW (571 hp) offered by the SLS AMG has been achieved by the following measures:
  • Increase in maximum engine speed from 7200 to 8000 rpm
  • Fully revised high-speed valve train with modified camshafts, adapted cam geometry and optimised bucket tappets featuring a special coating which is otherwise exclusive to racing vehicles
  • Modification of the intake air ducting: derestriction and adaptation to the new maximum engine speed
  • Adaptation of the engine application and increase in peak pressure

Mercedes AMG SLS Black Series (On Fire!!)

AMG SLS Black-Series Fire
Here are the latest spyshot’s of the upcoming flagship version of the SLS dubbed the unmistakable AMG SLS Black-Series.

The Black Series has been spotted several times. But today we got it with the front totally without cammo and sporting a very large fixed wing.

And only the day after the new family of the AMG Black Series, caught fire on the Nordschleife while testing.

Initial reports this was simply an engine fire but after completing nearly a full lap, It looks like this could be from the rear brakes.

The driver escaped without any injuries,but the prototype has died a warriors death and gone up in flames.

The wide arches which are shrouding the tyres have more aggressive nature, and housing larger tyres than the standard SLS, rumored with a weight reduction of around 45 kg, and rumor has it that this will only be available as the gullwing.

The huge scoops on the front hint of the use of forced induction but this is unlikely the case, as the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter v-8 is hinted to have a few more tricks up its elongated sleeve and perhaps will be an engineered increased capacity of 6.4 along with improvements in weight and updated gearbox it is likely to exceed 600hp.

Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series Track Package & Aero Package

The recently unveiled Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series Coupe revealed at Frankfurt and here are some spy shots of the Black Series Sporting the AMG Track Package and AMG Aero package.

The AMG Track Package includes exclusively developed tires, size 255/35 R 19 for the front and 285/30 R 19, active rear-axle transmission cooling, and a radiator located in the rear apron that allows the airflow to pass through it effectively.

This package also includes a functionally tuned front splitter made of genuine carbon fiber and a fixed carbon-fiber rear Spoiler with an adjustable blade.

Both components not only increase the lift at the front and rear axle, they also aid the vehicle’s dynamic balance.

Powered by the 6.3 liter V8 engine throwing out 510 HP and torque of 457 ft-lbs, allowing the vehicle a 0 to 100 kph sprint time of around 4.2 seconds. Click Picture For Gallery

Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series: The most powerful C-Class of all time – Video

After numerous sightings and the Pistonspy Exclusives, Mercedes at Affalterbach have officially released photos.

The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series embodies the new AMG brand claim, Driving Performance, like no other AMG model. The new high-performance vehicle is the most powerful C-Class of all time, boasting a maximum output of 380 kW (517 hp) and a maximum torque of 620 newton metres. The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine impresses with its hefty torque, tremendous pulling power and responsiveness, and ensures high-calibre performance: the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

It doesn’t matter from which angle you’re looking at it: the new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series displays its ties with motorsport from every perspective. The arrow-shaped front section with the central Mercedes star in the radiator grille is the visual synonym for its unfettered forwards thrust. The air intakes in the striking front apron ensure reliable air flow through the large cooling modules. Two openings in the aluminium bonnet support the expelling of engine heat, whilst the struts positioned at an angle in the front apron emphasise the vehicle’s width. The black front splitter located at the lower end helps to balance the vehicle aerodynamically at speed.

The tail end of the Black Series coupé is also a feast for the eyes: the new rear apron with its expressive black diffuser insert creates a broad effect. Just like on the SLS AMG GT3, it protrudes beyond the profile of the rear apron. The black grille on the upper end of the diffuser insert is an eye-catching feature, as is the AMG sports exhaust system: both of the chromed twin tailpipes integrated into the rear apron have an angular cross-section. The spoiler lip on the boot lid is painted in the vehicle colour and reduces lift at the rear axle, resulting in more driving stability at high speeds. The AMG logo with its discreet “Black Series” lettering is reserved exclusively for the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series.

The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is celebrating its world premiere during the Formula 1 race on the Nürburgring, the German Grand Prix (23 – 24 July 2011). The market launch will follow in January 2012, and its sales price is 115,430 euros (incl. 19% VAT).

Prototype Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Out In The Wild

Today we can give you the very first photos of the first prototype Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe in the hotter Black Series version.

We previously fetched you a mule of this car in development in sedan form and now it is prowling close to the Nurburgring wearing its final form.

This one has wider fenders both front and rear, with what looks like covered up air vents on the front and rear fenders.

It also has a more massive looking front bumper and a agressive looking rear bumper.

The power is expected to raise to some 530hp and the Black Series version is also expected to loose some weight due to clever use of carbon fiber and light weight ceramic braking system.

Enjoy the pictures..

Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Confirmed and the C63 AMG Black Out in the Wild

Well the guys at Mercedes are ready to show us one model of the C63 AMG and keeping the upcoming C63 AMG Black away from the press reports.

As a result the new C63 AMG coupe gets 451bhp which is increased too a whopping 481bhp with the optional AMG Development pack and 442lb ft of torque, from the final offering of the v8 6.2 litre unit.

That will be enough to push the new Mercedes to 62mph from rest in 4.4 (4.3) seconds and on to the electronically limited 155mph or (174mph) top speed (Development pack version).

Power goes to the rear wheels via the AMG-specific SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission, which features a wet start-up clutch in place of the traditional torque converter, helping to reduce power losses and improve fuel consumption.

Now here comes the unofficial news on a C63 AMG Black we first exclusively spotted back in October last year,first of all expect the above C63 AMG to be whipped around the winter landscape in various forms of weight reduction.

Along with the wider arches to give it a more aggressive stance supported by a the 6.2 litre v8 hand finished and tweaked to deliver around the 540hp via a modified version of the C63 AMG 7-Speed box.

Expect to see ceramic disks and a rear diffuser on later prototypes and the fenders should eventually blend in to the bodywork along with a sub 4 seconds 0-62mph.

Strange Mercedes C-Class AMG Black Series Mule Spyshot’s

A few weeks ago we spied a C-Class AMG Prototype with a wider track and flared chromed wheel arches.

We found this strange as the New C-Class is arriving in mid 2011, we assume that this is a prototype of the C-Class AMG Black Series.

We expect that this car is powered by the same 6.2 liter V8 as the CLK 63 AMG Black Series.

The power of this model should be around 510 hp along with a 0-60 time of around 4 seconds, and the power delivered to the rear wheels via AMG 7 speed speedtronic gearbox.

And to stop this car there are ceramic disks along with a dual circuit system to ensure maximum brake performance at high speed.

Not sure if this C-Class AMG Black Series will make it to market with the new model coming in 2011.
