    • Spy video shows the upcoming SLS Black Series - Look wide and sounds great

      No secret the SLS Black Series is coming. The real questions though are how much it will cost and what the changes will be. Will it have the rumored 650 horsepower? Will it have the rumored $500k price point? We certainly hope not on the latter. MotorAuthority got a video of the car testing and it looks and sounds great (just listen to those throttle blips on the downshifts!). Also one can see a roll cage installed which may be a factory option. The entire car is definitely much more aggressive than the standard SLS. Check out the video and photos below.

        I hope the real deal sounds way louder than that. Don't get me wrong, it sounds nice, but its no where near the level of a Ferrari or Lambo for the price they might ask for.

        It is going to be pretty loud. It is difficult to convey the sound through a video like that. Camera equipment may have a limited microphone, etc.

        Oh I hope so. The car definitely looks a lot more aggressive than the regular model, and it should being that it is a black series and the price is epic. I kinda wish they would have added a small wing instead of the little deployable one it has. There's something about the back that just doesn't seem right for a track oriented car.

        Understandable. Just remind me to never attend a car show with you unless you are wearing diapers.

        Timing will be perfect....I need a new toy in Europe and this has my name all over it. The 'regular' SLS has the most ugly rear end I have seen but with this treatment it is all good!

        Joe,

        What are you talking about...I used to read 'forum' when I was a kid. As an FYI, the wine I mentioned on the other forum was some of the best wine in the world, Tuscan farmers wine. NO preservatives and drank in the Italian way...the wine room under the house with the fireplace going, home made cheese and other things not mentioned on a public forum!

        Hworang, money is a relative thing and you pay for exclusivity. I don't know if you remember when the 599 first came out but the first car was delivered to a former ferrari f1 driver was who is now with mercedes (and the car was a non-ferrari color - white) ....I know exactly how much the premium on the 2nd car was to jump the queue.

        Anyways - I have heard the car is the real deal and we could be looking at a 2014 spring delivery date.

        I meant they did not make their money in forums.

        nope but I figure 400 - 500 is a good range.

        When you consider I bought a house, hauler, and trailer to store and move the clk around, it cost me more than 500 so the sls will be a margin!

        I sure hope it is A LOT of car for that coin.

        Understandable. I just hope Mercedes goes above on beyond on this thing for that price.

        Rumor has it that they are using a lot of the parts from the GT3 car for this thing. It will for sure be an awesome machine and the flagship for the BS lineup. Not sure I really like the styling though but then again the SLS has never really impressed me aesthetically. Nonetheless I'm sure it will be wicked on track.
