The New Super Sports Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series
The newly released super sports car, the Mercedes -AMG GT Black Series, draws inspiration from the GT3 and GT4 race cars.
The rear-wheel-drive model features a twin-turbo 4.0-litre flat-plane crank V8 engine that develops an impressive 720 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which has been reinforced to cope with the additional torque. This setup propels the vehicle from standstill to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in less than 9 seconds. Keep hitting the accelerator and the car will eventually hit a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h).
The new carbon-fibre bonnet is another motorsport heritage, with two large exhaust air outlets made from black finished carbon surfaces. The rearview is defined by the new rear apron with a large diffuser, two rounded twin tailpipe trims on either side, side wheel arch ventilation, and aerofoil blades that can be retracted or adjusted based on the speed and when braking and steering into corners.
