The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG made quite a splash when it was introduced to the automotive world. It was the first car entirely created by AMG, and it was also a successor to two legendary Mercedes cars: the 300 SL that introduced the unforgettable gullwing door design, and also the incredible SLR McLaren. With its immensely powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine, as well as its impressive dynamics and captivating design, it remains one of the most iconic performance cars to ever wear the legendary Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star, and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is the most extreme version of it.
Inspired by the SLS AMG GT3 race car, the SLS AMG Black Series achieved an extreme level of performance. The engine received a power increase, totaling an impressive 622 horsepower, which made it the most powerful naturally-aspirated V8-powered production car until the C8 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 nearly a decade later. Along with other racing-focused improvements throughout the car, the results were a 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 196 mph. This rare masterpiece is a testament to the best in performance-oriented engineering, and at Graham Rahal Performance in Brownsburg, Indiana, one is available for sale.
Only 132 of these cars were made, and this specific example, finished in Mars Red, is one of only 5 like it. The red paintwork suggests the car’s hot-blooded nature, while the interior shows an elegant, sleek, and racing-inspired configuration. Red is also present, but in accents and stitching that contrasts a black finish, with surfaces upholstered in both leather and Alcantara, making for a sporty yet luxurious and elegant finish that Mercedes-Benz and its AMG cars are celebrated for offering.
