Mercedes-AMG conducts final tests of the most powerful version of the GT coupe

The German novelty, which will receive the designation Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, will be the most powerful performance of the high-performance coupe. The prototype is undergoing a series of final trials.

The upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series was camouflaged at a special event that was created for those happy owners who have already purchased the AMG Project One hypercar. AMG GT Black Series will be the most powerful performance of the German high-performance coupe.

  In its current form, the AMG GT is available in several versions. To date, the performance of the AMG GT R is the most powerful – a 577-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine is installed under the hood.

The upcoming version of the Black Series will be even faster. We have already seen the test races of the prototypes of the long-awaited new items on the Nurburgring race track.

  Take a closer look at the published pictures, you can notice the massive air intakes and wings, as well as the comically large ventilation openings of the hood. There is also a rear wing and rear diffuser, due to which, a sufficient amount of downforce is provided for confident passage of high-speed turns. So we can no doubt say that the engineers of the German automaker spent a lot of time creating the ideal aerodynamics of the most powerful coupe.

  We expect the AMG GT Black Series to use an upgraded version of the current Twin-Turbo V8 engine. The tuners have already been able to “squeeze” more than 880 horsepower out of it, so Mercedes-AMG specialists can easily do the same. It is safe to say that the new product is unlikely to offer less than 700 horsepower.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the new Vision Mercedes Simplex prototype is luxury, tradition and innovation. Mercedes-Benz Corporation has developed a machine concept that combines history and future.
