Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series Track Action

By -

The last of the Black Series is also the last of the great, big, naturally aspirated V8s.

With everyone, including AMG, moving to smaller, turbocharged and supercharged motors, why not take a few minutes to enjoy one of the last, big V8-powered supercars? Join Carfection for some hot car-on-track action at Castle Combe as they drive the ironically white, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, and let it sing its mellifluous song.

Yes, the host is a bit chatty, but he does pause politely and put the hammer down so you can really appreciate the brilliant noise this super GT makes.

Just watching and listening is enough to make most any car enthusiast giddy. This long, low, gullwing car with 6.2 liters of V8 making 622 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque is exactly the sort of thing we all doodled in our notebooks when we were kids.

When it was first introduced, the SLS AMG was admonished for feeling unsorted, and like a bit of a handful. By the time the Black Series version came out, the bugs had been worked out, but as Carfection tests this car in the era of the near-perfect Mercedes-AMG GT S, will the SLS AMG Black Series stand the test of time. Watch above to find out.
