    Mercedes SLS Black Series Confirmed for production

    We already reported that an SLS Black Series was in the works. Nice to see the mainstream sites confirm it as Motortrend reports AMG confirmed the production and development of the car. “We absolutely have to do a Black Series” Tobias Moers, head of AMG vehicle development, stated to Motor Trend. What changes will the SLS Black Series bring? Well, expect more power and less weight hopefully. It will be at home on the track and likely have many of the same changes the C63 AMG Black Series will be seeing versus its standard counterpart.

    It will be nice to see AMG release the m159 in a higher state of tune. Of course, then this car will be even more tail happy. I'm guessing the rear tires will be very wide.Anyone know how wide the rear tires are on a standard sls?

    Doubt there would be any demand/ interest for it. It's just another reason to bump up the price another 50k haha

    I don't know, I've seen soccer moms rolling around in them in LA. Probably driving over potholes like they could give a damn. So, there's always gonna be that market who wants the most focused version of something.

    It makes more sense than an SL65 Black Series.
