Just like the regular SLS, the Black Series stands out for its predominantly retro styling, its Gullwing doors, excellent interior quality and proper supercar performance. However, unlike its less track-focused sibling, the Black Series is quicker and, as many would argue, cooler.
In fact, reviewer Doug DeMuro was full of superlatives while describing the SLS Black Series, despite a couple of annoying quirks such as how uncomfortable it is to close the doors once you’re inside, even for a person who’s relatively tall.
This car is also not tremendously practical nor comfortable, but using it as a daily driver is apparently not as dreadful as some might think, especially since the cabin quality is extremely high overall and there are plenty of decent features inside.
As for performance, powering the SLS Black is a 6.2-liter V8 putting down 631 PS (622 HP) and 635 Nm (468 lb-ft) of torque with the help of a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. In a straight line, you need just 3.6 seconds in order to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill, and you can keep going all the way to 315 km/h (196 mph).
Of course, since this is more of a track-focused car, it really shines in the handling department, with its steering described as being sharp and precise.
