Default [Auto Express] Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series Spied

Quote:
Caught testing in Germany, this prototype shows all the signs of the Black Series family - including the blacked-out grille, massively flared bodywork and widened rear axle fitted with larger cross-section tyres. And it's not just visually where this mega-Merc will be rewriting the rule book either.

Under the vented and stretched bonnet will be the same 6.2-litre V8, but tuned to around 650bhp - trailing only to the 661bhp V12 SL65 AMG Black Series, but putting the new 510bhp C63 AMG Black Series firmly in its place.

Do want but at an estimated price of 325,000 ($520,000 USD) I don't think I am going to get one

Those are neat and all, but they aren't worth the ridiculous prices. I hate Mercedes for this. Good car, unfair prices. Even BMW overprices.

It's going to be too powerful, too hard, too ugly and too flappy paddled to be a good car. The base SLS is already enough of a handful as it is.

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
