The new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series appeared on renderingsSeptember 23, 2019
The German sports coupe Mercedes-AMG GT in the new version of the Black Series will be the most powerful in the history of the model. The car will also receive a very high price. The official presentation is scheduled for 2020.
So far, we have only seen photos with camouflage prototypes of the new model of the German sports brand. The most powerful version of the Mercedes-AMG GT coupe, which will be designated the Black Series, will be officially unveiled next year. The novelty will also become the most productive model, with the exception of the One hypercar, in the current Mercedes-AMG family.
Now, thanks to our friends from the Carlifestyle team, we can see the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series without camouflage – in front of us is a computer visualization of a German novelty.
Everything from the front splitter, the vents of the hood, the rear diffuser and the two-level wing got incredibly large sizes. Extremely low ground clearance apparently means that the coupe is mainly focused on use on the racetrack, but it is unlikely that you will be able to drive a car on public roads.
Under the formidable hood is a 4.0-liter V8 engine with two turbines. It is worth noting that this is a newly developed installation with eight cylinders, which borrowed some details from the V8 version of the M178. It is noteworthy that the head of AMG says that the new engine is not “typical V8 from Mercedes-AMG”. It is widely believed that a powerful novelty will have at least 700 horsepower in order to be able to break the speed record of the Italian Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, which is currently the fastest production car on the Nurburgring race track.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Mercedes-AMG has big plans for the recently developed 421-horsepower engine. The engine, which is located under the hood of the high-performance hatchback A45, may well be installed in older models of the sports division of Mercedes-AMG. But this will not happen soon – the main attention will now be paid to the electrification of the model range.
