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!

    Love the SLS. Hate these stupid teasers!

    Bit disappointing that really isn't it?

    I suspect it's fashion over form tho - the SL65 is a "fkING LOOK AT ME" car, most of those addendas and bits probably serve little purposes other than drawing attention to the car.

    You get the feeling the SLS is a bit less "look at me" and a bit more "subtle improvement".

    Arabs will be disappoint - well, except they won't be because they'll paint in pink and put a cock on the roof...

    Having seen an SL Black Series on the roads - I don't think anything except a SLS BS would come close for road presence! (for Mercs)
