Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series Has the Paul Ricard Race Track to Itself

If all you want from a car is “GT3 performance for the road”, then according to Mercedes-Benz, you need not look any further than their very own SLS Black Series.

The V8-powered German muscle car gets 626 hp (631 PS), which is good for pushing its carbon-clad body to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and up to a top speed of 315 km/h – 197 mph.

It’s also particularly good at making noise – a deep burble that reverberates around the empty Paul Ricard track, where the promo for the SLS Black was partially shot.

The all-yellow Merc, with black accents, a uniquely-shaped rear spoiler, as well as a wider body kit and matching yellow brake calipers, looks very different to a regular silver or dark grey SLS. Be prepared, though, to write a check for way more than the $200,000 you are required to pay if you just want the more docile GT model…
