If the SLS AMG wasn’t quite enough for you, Mercedes-Benz won’t disappoint with the new SLS AMG Black Series. The Black Series is rumored to hit showrooms sometime next year, and our photographers were lucky enough to snap some spy photos of Mercedes-Benz’s newest flagship. 

The Black Series is going to be an amazingly powerful car, putting out over 600 hp and making roughly 500 ft. lb. of torque. The car will likely make use of a re-tooled version of the 6.2-liter V8 sporting new cams and higher compression pistons to squeeze more juice of the regular SLS motor. In addition the Black Series will lose 110lbs. and receive some aerodynamic tweaks to enhance the cars performance. All of these improvements should take the 0-60 time down to around 3.5 seconds.

The Black Series we see in these photos receives larger wheels, huge front fenders and a serious snarl in the styling on the front end of the car. Larger air intakes are visible as well to feed the beast with a high air flow.

Expect the SLS AMG Black Series to come out next year, and to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $405,000.

    I don’t think it’s worth the speculated $400 000. Performance isn’t that much better than a 2012 SLS AMG which starts around $190 000.

    Were saving .1 seconds on the 0-60 time. That means a lot when it comes to racing on a track, but nothing noticeable on the track
