Mercedes-AMG published data on the 720-horsepower coupe GT Black SeriesJuly 14, 2020
The press service of the German brand has published information about the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. The car will receive a 720-horsepower engine. The debut of the novelty will take place tomorrow.
As reported last week, the sports coupe Mercedes-AMG GT in the performance of the Black Series is equipped with a powerful 720-hp twin-turbo V8 engine. It is reported that the engineers of the German brand significantly upgraded the model’s motor to surpass the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which offers 730 horsepower from a row of “3.8” volume of 3.8-liter.
Huge power in 720 hp makes GT Black the most productive production model of Mercedes of all time, with the exception of the AMG One hypercar, which uses an engine from an F1 racing car with four-digit power.
At the same time, the novelty will be able to boast an additional 143 hp. compared to the GT 577-strong, which is the most powerful version of the model at the moment. The novelty will be 90 hp more powerful than the 4-door coupe AMG GT 63 S with its 630 hp
We will have to wait until tomorrow to find out all the details about the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. A recent teaser released by Mercedes-AMG on Twitter suggests that ultimately the new GT version uses GT’s twin-turbo flat-crank V8. The inscription reads “1-8-2-7-4-5-3-6”, which probably refers to the order of starting the cylinders, which differs from the current 4.0-liter engine. Since the numbers alternate between the rows of cylinders, it is safe to say that the “black” novelty does have a flat crank.
Detailed information on what kind of torque the engine of the novelty develops is currently not available, although we expect a large increase, compared to 700 Nm, which are available on the GT R.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a prototype of the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar was noticed on tests. Journalists of Western publications captured the camouflaged prototype of the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar with the Formula 1 racing car engine.
