According to a report by AutoCar, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 that we saw at the 2010 New York Auto Show last week is expected to share its body shape with the upcoming AMG SLS Black Series, due to go into limited production in 2013.
Besides carrying a heftier price-tag, the SLS AMG Black Series will get a reworked 6.2L V8 engine that will boost output from 563-hp to 600-hp. Torque will be increased to 500 lb-ft. Besides the reworked engine, AMG engineers will add a larger air manifold, higher compression ratio, reprofiled camshafts and other unspecified tweaks.
“We”re not at the limit with what”s out there the moment. There”s still a good deal more to come from the engine,” says AMG engine boss Friedrich Eichler. “We”re saving the best until last.”
According to insiders, 0-62 mph should come in under 3.5 seconds and top speed should hit around 208 mph.
Yes, we’re already drooling.
