- mercedes-amg has released a first look at the top-of-the-line gt black series rear-wheel-drive sports car starring automotive youtuber shmee150.
- we expect that the top-dog gt will be powered by a new version of amg's twin-turbo 4.0-liter v-8 producing upward of 700 horsepower.
- we should be getting full details on the gt black series within the coming weeks.
mercedes-amg's gt rear-wheel-drive sports car is getting an aggressive black series sendoff with a more powerful engine and a massive wing, and it will make the gt even more track capable than the gt r and gt r pro. we've already seen the gt black series testing its track capabilities on the nürburgring, where we expect it to post a lightning-quick time, and now amg has released this teaser video starring popular automotive youtuber shmee150.
the gt r and gt r pro models are powered by amg's twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter v-8 producing 577 horsepower, and they are already seriously track-capable cars. the gt r currently holds a spot in the top 10 on our all-time lightning lap leaderboard, where we lapped it around virginia international raceway's grand course in 2:43.4. the coming gt black series will be the top dog, though. it will be even more of a track monster and is expected to be powered by a new version of amg's twin-turbo 4.0-liter producing upward of 700 horsepower.
the gt black series will have a lower and larger front grille with extra aero and added air intakes along with a new two-tone hood with a middle air scoop and vents. we can also see that the side louvers are much deeper compared to the gt r and gt r pro. the best view is from the back, though, with wide rear fenders, thin taillights, and diffuser with quad-tip exhaust. and you definitely can't miss the behemoth wing out back that looks like it was stripped right off a gt3 race car.
expect to hear more about the mercedes-amg gt black series in the coming weeks. it'll be the top-of-the-line gt model as well as its sendoff, so expect production to be limited with a starting price well over $200,000.
