2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
This car is expected to retail in the $200,000 range, the kind of high-end price tag that hardly raises an eyebrow for Mercedes-Benz lovers. Brauer said that in addition to the very desirable name plate, this car has a lot to recommend under the hood.
“With 154 fewer pounds to haul around, and 39 more horsepower from its 6.2-liter V8 — for a total of 622 — the new SLS AMG Black Series is now the most capable Mercedes-Benz ever produced,” he said. “A zero-to-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 196 miles per hour reflect the capabilities of this Benz, as do the carbon fiber rear wing and braking components.”
