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.

If the new 563-hp SLS exotic from AMG already sounds like your cup of Red Bull, then you’re absolutely going to love the upcoming Black Series. That’s right, according to recent reports, AMG will offer a limited edition hardest-core version of the new Gullwing exotic.

Total output for the new Mercedes halo car will be in excess of 600-hp, with roughly 500 ft-lbs of torque, thanks to updates to the 6.2-liter V8 engine including new cams and higher compression pistons. Additional modifications will include some aerodynamic tweaks, suspension upgrades and a weight reduction of around 110 lbs. The new 0-60 speed is expected to drop from 3.8 seconds to 3.5 seconds, with a new to speed in excess of 200 mph.

“We’re not at the limit with what’s out there the moment. There’s still a good deal more to come from the engine,” says AMG engine boss Friedrich Eichler. “We’re saving the best until last.”

The new SLS AMG Black Series is also expected to cost a good chunk more than the standard car, with a 50% premium bringing the $270,000 exotic up to a stratospheric $405,000.

In addition t the Black Series model, AMG also has plans to produce a cabriolet version of the SLS, as well as a GT racer.
