The new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series was designed by engineers in Affalterbach to be an incomparable flagship in the Mercedes-AMG GT family. In order to provide the best possible driving dynamics and vehicle balance in any situation, this Halo model is equipped with the most powerful AMG V8 production engine ever built.
Accompanied by the latest AMG GT3 race car, the new Black Series is an expression of both AMG’s racing heritage as well as the company’s design philosophy. An optional new AMG Magmabeam paint finish, reserved solely for the new GT Black Series, further enhances its distinctive appearance. This exclusive new model will be priced at $325,000 when it arrives in U.S. dealerships in early 2021.
Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Overview
The new Handcrafted AMG V8 engine with flat-plane crankshaft powers the new AMG GT Black series with 720 horsepower between 6,700 and 6,900 rpm and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm. An entirely new personality and level of driving enjoyment are provided by the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series’ all-new engine. GT Black Series accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds and can hit 124mph in just under nine seconds. The vehicle can reach a top speed of 202 mph.
The Nurburgring-Nordschleife lap record was recently broken by the AMG GT Black Series. With a time of 6:43.616 minutes for the 12.8 mile-long track and 6:48.047 minutes for the 12.944 mile-long total track, the GT Black Series has been officially measured, notarized, and certified as the fastest street-legal “sports cars” on the market.
Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series race cars have a closer visual and technical connection to the AMG GT3 and AMG GT4 road cars than ever before. The new carbon-fiber hood, with its two large exhaust air outlets in black-finished carbon, is another direct derivation from motorsport, in addition to the larger cooling air intake upfront from the AMG GT racing car. Warm air from the diagonally positioned cooling pack exits the engine compartment through these large openings. Increases the vehicle’s downforce. In addition, the engine’s cooling airflow is optimized, reducing air resistance.
Additionally, the bearings on the upper and lower wishbones of the rear axle are straight out of Formula 1. Toe-in and camber do not change under high loads because of their motorsport design. Precision steering and clear feedback are provided by the AMG GT Black Series, resulting in excellent cornering performance.
A new, larger front bumper with a manually adjustable carbon-fiber front splitter for track use, carbon fiber fenders, and large air outlets on the front hood are among the standard features of this ultimate performance model. A lightweight carbon-fiber roof, black painted carbon fiber rear hatch with lip spoiler, and larger rear windshield in lightweight glass are all included. The impressive list of standard performance features is rounded out by a two-piece matte black-painted carbon fiber rear spoiler and matte black AMG 10-spoke forged wheels with a high-sheen rim lip.
Interior highlights include Exclusive Nappa leather/DINAMICA microfiber in black with either orange or silver contrasting topstitching; matte-black carbon-fiber trim; AMG Performance seats; AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfiber; lightweight door panels in DINAMICA microfiber with orange or silver contrasting topstitching; and Black Series badges.
