Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Black Series Spotted Testing
The all-conquering Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is back and this time it comes in AMG Black Series specification. If you thought that the standard AMG GT was lacking something then well, Mercedes-Benz appears to agree with you as recent spy images show the Black Series machine out in full testing livery.
Whilst Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division is well versed at building performance powerhouses, the Black Series label adds another dimension to what are already potent road cars. Applied to the most hardcore variants, the AMG GT R Black Series takes heavy inspiration from the AMG GT GT3 race car which has been applied in successful fashion amongst GT Championships around the globe.
The news that a Black Series model is being readied ties into the motion that the AMG GT’s natural lifespan is coming to an end as Mercedes looks set to update the existing model range with a new member of the Mercedes family which is expected to arrive over the next couple of years.
With two of the machines spotted on the recent test, the new AMG GT Black Series machine appears to be a radically overhauled machine to that of its standard counterpart and it’s the bodywork that has seen the most changes.
All over the exterior surfaces are hints that this is going to be the most bonkers road-going AMG GT yet. To the front and rear aprons, you have larger cut-outs and vents, whilst the bonnet also comes dresses in enlarged vents. More subtle tweaks are also here, however, it’s at the rear where things get a little crazy.
Replacing that plain and beautifully curved rear end is an enormous and fixed rear wing. A new exhaust layout is also present here as a new diffuser configuration. It’s clear that Mercedes-Benz has put some real effort in on this machine as it looks to wear the Black Series badge in devasting fashion.
From a power perspective, it’s expected that this new machine will deliver north of 700 bhp from a heavily modified V8 bi-turbo engine which is rumoured to benefit from forged internals, brand new camshafts and an all-new engine management system. More than just a road car, the GT R is going after track day glory and is sure to be a winner.
