A few months back, Mercedes-Benz confirmed that a Black Series version of the brand new AMG GT will be created, which is great news.
AMG company boss Tobias Moers revealed that the race-spec AMG GT will be available for the 2016 season, so we will still have to wait a while to see it.
I don’t want to make a dragster that’s only good for doing 0-100km/h [0-62mph] in 2.8sec. We need more power, less weight, better aerodynamics and different suspension but the targets should be the power to weight ratio, drivability, lap time and tremendous feel.
0-60mph in around 3.6 seconds
Mercedes is planning to knock off about 80kg from the GT S while boosting power to circa 550bhp. Meaning the GT Black Series will do 0-60mph in around 3.6 seconds and possibly also lapping the Nurburgring 10 seconds faster than the existing range-topper.
