AMG teases SLS Black Series


It's been a busy year for the SLS, AMG revealing electric SLSes, 45th Anniversary racing SLSes, GT SLSes and, shortly on the AMG Facebook page, the Black Series version too. Which is probably more of interest to us than the leccy one, impressive technology or not.

This, with a slightly smaller wing. Possibly.

So the GT - watch this space for more on this shortly - brings with it a little more power, a bit more leather and some detail chassis tweaks. What does that leave for the Black Series then? We'll see shortly but going by spy shots from testing at the 'ring and a few hints on the Facebook pic we can safely assume it'll involve some fat sills, flared arches, bigger vents and - possibly - a fixed rear wing. If you're looking for hints it's probably safe to assume the GT3 race car will be a big influence on the looks, even if the quad exhausts on the test mule suggest it won't get the side exhausts. Which is a shame.

When's the cover coming off? Well, at the time of writing the image had been up 19 hours and AMG was saying 'within 24 hours' so even with our maths we'd deduce that'd be pretty soon.

Keep 'em peeled!

    So we can safely assume it'll look something like this;

    Not a big fan of the standard car, but the GT is just one of those perfect conversions. If it captures even half of that menace (no side exhausts though, boo) then it'll be a beast. biggrin

    clearly it needs to be made wider. What were they thinking when they made the standard SLS so narrow!http://pistonheads.com/xforums/imgs/9.gif

    The original also had far too much ground clearance. Sure will be fun negotiating petrol garage forecourts and NCP/hotel car parks!!

    I like the SLS but not a fan of the Black. IMO the SLS looks good because its quite a clean design, spoilers/fins/wings ruin this.

    Probably shifts a bit though....
