Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series tackles Paul Ricard Circuit

Although most of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series have been spoken for, that doesn’t stop Mercedes from releasing a new promotional video of the limited-built Black Series taking in a few laps at the Paul Ricard Circuit.

As can be expected, the supercar is very much in its elements on the track, tackling the renowned circuit with relative ease.

With only a handful coming to Australia, the ultra-exclusive SLS AMG Black Series is powered by a revised 6.2-litre V8 that churns out 464kW (622bhp) and 634Nm of torque. It is mated to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch transmission that drives the rear wheels, and sling shots the 1,550kg coupé from 0-100km/h in 3.6 seconds en route to a top speed of 315km/h.

The colossal performance comes courtesy of a fully revised high-speed valve train with modified camshafts, adapted cam geometry and optimised bucket tappets that features a special coasting that is typically used on race cars.
