If you haven’t gotten enough of the all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, fret not – the automaker has just released 64 glorious seconds of running footage. However, there is one downside: we are treated to a faux-rock soundtrack in place of the SLS Black’s V-8 snarl.
The V-8 in question is a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter unit hand-built at AMG’s facilities in Affalterbach, Germany that is good for some 622 hp and 7400 rpm and 468 lb-ft at 5500 rpm. Other engine upgrades for the Black Series over the “basic” 2013 SLS AMG GT include a 8000-rpm redline (up from 7400 rpm); a slightly quicker 0-62 mph time (3.5 seconds versus 3.7); and a new oil pump, crank bearings, camshafts, intake, and connecting rod fasteners.
Of course, as you can see in the video, the SLS Black wears a raft of aesthetic upgrades to differentiate it from less-exclusive SLS models. The front and rear tracks are wider (by 0.8 and 0.9 tenths of an inch, respectively) and now house black 10×19-inch wheels up front and 12×20-inch in back. Starting at the rear, there are now quad rectangular exhaust outlets that are nestled within an aggressive carbon fiber diffuser, all of which are below a massive new carbon fiber fixed rear wing. Hood, front fascia, and body scoops have all been accented in carbon fiber, and the head- and taillights have been have been tinted.
