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.

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.

Jaguar have confirmed the roadster will be available with a 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine in two different power outputs one with 380HP with 460Nm and 340HP with 450Nm.
This car seems to be housing something slightly more powerfull from its V8 ForceFed Growl so rumour is a foot that this car could be housing the “R” family engine the supercharged 5.0-liter V8.
