Mercedes released official US pricing for the new SLS AMG Black Series, a model which will be available in the States starting next month.
At the exterior, the new model gets 20-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, revised front grille, side skirts and rear diffuser but also a carbon fiber wing.
Under the hood sits a 6.2-liter V8 producing 622 horsepower and 634Nm of torque, enough for a 0-100 km/h sprint in 3,5 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h.
The V8 powerplant received several improvements such as new high-speed valve train, adapted cam geometry, new camshafts and revised bucket tappets.
All these mean that you get more power from the 6.2-liter unit, so the new Black Series model is also more capable, not just better-looking. The German folks at Mercedes price the new SLS AMG Black Series at $275,000 in the United States.
