What could have been a follow up on Monday's news on the sighting of another prototype of Mercedes-Benz's SLS AMG Black Series Edition took a…toastier twist today as the German firm's test car ended up on a guardrail while running on the Nürburgring race track and burned to the ground.
There's not a lot of information about the incident at this time, though, we do know that both the driver and his passenger abandoned the vehicle uninjured before it was engulfed in flames.
The bits and pieces of the SLS AMG Black Series Edition that are scatted on the ground along with the positioning of the car suggest that drive may have lost control smashing into the guardrail with the Gullwing coupe's rear end.
As a reminder, the SLS AMG Black Series Edition is an upcoming hardcore version of the regular SLS AMG GT with a wider but lighter body featuring a range of aero enhancements, a tweaked 6.2-liter producing possibly as much as 650-ponies and featuring upgrades to the suspension, steering and brakes.
