Practically new Mercedes-AMG SLS Black Series is costly image

In mint condition, this Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series is one of just 399 units ever built as a left-hand drive configuration, so it’s understandable – at less than 1,000 traveled miles – why the owner wants £389,995.

That’s about $480,000 / €449,200 for the 2013 model year with the Designo Mystic White body shade and the optional aerodynamics package getting additional flics on the front apron and an adjustable carbon fiber rear aerofoil. Of course the main area of interest is the V8 6208cc engine churning 622 horsepower (464 kW) and 468 pound-feet (635 Newton-meters) of torque sent to the wheels using the AMG dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox. It will sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in about 3.6 seconds – making it an equal to the newer Mercedes-AMG GT R. The top speed is of 196 mph (315 kph), so the SLS AMG Black Series is up there in the league of extraordinary Affalterbach gentlemen.

The seller claims the high-performance coupe “is in immaculate condition throughout” and it “looks as though it just left the factory.” The cabin features black leather + Alcantara upholstery and by the way, the dealer also has a right-hand drive SLS AMG Black Series, with the same shade and aero pack. Apparently those RHD versions are even more exclusive – and this example went out for just 1,600 miles (2,574 km) and can be grabbed for an incredible £483,950 (about $595,700 / €557,400).
