The new Mercedes AMG GT Black Series is 711 hp


Without a doubt, the most exciting product to bring the three-pointed star to the 2020 launch is the long-awaited return of the Black Series. Countless tests have been carried out at the Nürburgring and more recently in a winter wonderland in Northern Europe. Mercedes was relatively shy about details about the spiritual successor to the AMG Black SLS series, but a report tries to shed light on the juicy performance figures.

According to the South African magazine Double Apex, the new flagship from Mercedes (outside Hypercar One) will deliver a whopping 530 kW, which corresponds to 711 hp. The torque generated by its two-turbocharged V8 engine is expected to remain at 800 Newton meters (590 pound-feet). If you believe in the report, it means that the Black Series offers an additional 134 hp and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) over the AMG GT R.

The report further mentions that the V8 is combined with a dual clutch automatic transmission that transfers all of this power to the rear wheels for amazing performance. The new Black should reach 0 to 100 km / h in less than three seconds and reach a maximum of 320 km / h. These figures are achieved thanks to a new development of the V8, which, according to AMG boss Tobias Moers, is different from any other engine that Affalterbach previously worked on.

If you think the above-mentioned SLS AMG Black series has lost 70 kg compared to the regular style, there is a good chance that the new Black will also follow a strict diet. Early prototypes also showed a wild aerodynamics for a car that Moers said would not have “much in common” with the GT R.

While some have referred to the new track-centered machine as the Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series, the report mentions that it will drop the “R”. A high price and low production numbers are expected, and some people are trying to make a good profit before the super sports car makes its big debut. An early build slot was released in Supercars for Sale, which will cost you € 45,000 ($ 49,300) above the high model price, regardless of what it is. It’s certainly much more than what the Mercedes-AMG is asking for the GT R Pro for $ 200,645.
