2014 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series Rockets Through Desert

2014 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series Rockets Through Desert

Mercedes’ special hotter-than-ever AMG SLS Black Series debuted last week and now there’s footage of the car in motion.

Powered by a 6.3-liter V8, the car makes 622 hp and 468 lb-ft or torque, the car is more powerful than a normal SLS and sheds some 150 lbs as well. That weight loss comes from a list of lightweight parts, all of which help the car reach 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Of course, that’s also due in large part to the car’s seven-speed DCT, which allows drivers shift with lightning speed.
