Lightbulb Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series already planned

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Mercedes-Benz

Typically when Mercedes-Benz releases a new model, we only expect it to be a matter of time before the AMG performance version follows. The thing is that with Benz's new sports car already wearing the AMG badge and boasting as much as 503 horsepower in S trim, what would the German automaker even call an even more extreme version of the new Mercedes-AMG GT?

Black Series, that's what. Speaking to AMG chief Tobias Moers at the launch of the GT in Paris last week, Evo reports that a more extreme version is definitely in the cards. "Sooner or later," said Moers, "there will be a Black Series version," and it will be faster and sharper than the existing model. Just how much faster and sharper - or for that matter, when it will arrive - we don't know, but Evo predicts it won't be before 2018. By that time we can expect additional variants to include a convertible as well.

For those unfamiliar, the Black Series label is what AMG assigns to its most extreme performance models. It typically reserves the treatment strictly for two-door models, historically applying it the likes of the SLK, SL, SLS, CLK and C-Class coupe with enhancements affected to the engine, suspension, brakes, aero... the usual, making an already powerful and quick performance machine even more so. Expect the same of the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, whenever it arrives.Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series already planned originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 06 Oct 2014 17:31:00 EST.
