Power, elegance and sexiness. If you want me to sum up what is the 2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Black Series all about is those three factors.
Before anything else, let’s clear this out: This is the most powerful AMG V8 in history.
An accomplice that will back you up in your lust for speed, a car that will make you think you are in automotive heaven, a vehicle that you will want to take to long, very long highway drives, just for the sake of it: A perfect companion.
Under its hood, it has 720 horses of pure power waiting to be tamed, at 6,700 rpm. It also gives us 590 lb-ft of torque.
Its heart, a twin-turbocharged 4.0 liter V8, allows reaching 60 mph in 3.1 seconds; and it has a top speed of 202 miles per hour.
In the official Black series press release, MB states that “at Mercedes-AMG, the Black Series has been synonymous with a very special type of car since 2006: uncompromisingly sporty, with an expressive design and the most consistent technology transfer from motorsport to series production. Black Series models are exclusive automotive rarities. They have not been developed to gather dust in collectors’ garages, but for high-speed use on racetracks, despite being approved for roads. The AMG GT Black Series represents a new highlight in this tradition: It is the most powerful Mercedes-AMG with a V8 series engine”, and I could not agree more.
You’ll just want to tear roads apart with this beast, you’ll want to devour miles and more miles, like there is no tomorrow… all while looking sharp and handsome, with that impeccable interior and exterior design.
Regarding its exterior style, it has an enlarged grille, huge air outlets on the hood, a rear wing for aerodynamic purposes and much more.
Also standing out, we have exterior features such as a new, larger front apron with an additional manually adjustable front splitter for racetrack use, with front diffuser in carbon fibre; new carbon-fibre bonnet with two large air outlets and visible carbon-fibre surfaces; new carbon-fibre front wings with seamlessly integrated louvres in the body colour; windscreen in thin glass; standard AMG 10-spoke forged wheels in matt black, including rim flange with high-sheen finish; a new, exclusive AMG magma beam special paintwork; and much more.
It also should be noted that the Michelin Pilot Cup 2 R tires are custom made for the car, another of the multiple factors that make this superb piece of machinery a rival to worry about.
All in all, this car is aiming for those hungry for speed. For those that want more and will get more. For those who want everything. For those who seek excellence in execution.
