It’s been quite a while since the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series was revealed. Recently, we got our hands on the configurator, giving us a chance to design the Black Series of our dreams.
This particular configurator didn’t have too many colors options. Initially, we tried out the Designo Graphite Gray Magno – a matte grey finish but later settled for the Designo Diamond White Bright as it adds a bit of contrast to the grey surfaces.
The interior of our AMG GT Black Series is trimmed in black Nappa leather with grey accents. We’ve gone with the AMG carbon bucket seats, carbon door sills and the optional AMG Track Package that adds a titanium roll cage and 4-point seat belts.
At the heart of the Black Series is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 720 hp @ 6700-6900 rpm and 590 lb-ft @ 2000-6000 rpm. The engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Mercedes claims that it will hit 62 mph 3.2 seconds, while 0-124 mph comes up in under 9 seconds. The top speed is 202 mph.
As you know, this is Mercedes’ most track-focused coupe. But, how does it compare with the Lamborghini Huracan STO?
