It’s official: Meet the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series image

The all-new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series has been officially unveiled ahead of its launch in mid-2013.

After starting its public life while being spied testing on the famous German track the Nurburgring earlier this year, and with the carmaker releasing a teaser image just a few hours ago, the all-new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is being placed into the spotlights for the first time now, with the company releasing the very first images and details with the supercar.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series has borrowed some styling cues from the GT3 version, like the 20mm and 24mm wider front and rear tracks. The model is also receiving the standard carbon ceramic brakes, 20-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels, carbon fiber rear diffuser, side skirts and front splitter, quad tailpipes, titanium exhaust system and more.

The interior design of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is getting a carbon fiber center console, an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, lightweight sports seats and some other features, while losing the COMAND multimedia system in order to save weight.

Power to the supercar is being provided by the same 6.2 liter V8 engine, which is now producing a total output of 622 horsepower (464 kW) and 634 Nm of torque (468 lb-ft), thanks to the new camshafts, air intake, improved oil and water cooling and some other tweaks. The model can now sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph). The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is burning 13.7 liters of fuel every 100 km (20.6 mpg UK / 17 mpg US) and it’s emitting 321 g/km of CO2. No pricing details have been released yet.
