    SLS Black Series spyshots show off wider carbon fiber bodywork

    The SLS Black Series is coming, hope everyone is up to speed with that. Autoevolution caught the vehicle testing and the spyshots have been making their way around the web. What is obviously most striking is the wider carbon fiber body work. The vehicle simply looks mean and aggressive, as has been the case for all Black Series vehicles produced thus far. Rumors about what is under the hood abound but we expect a tweaked M156. How tweaked? Well, 650 horsepower is the current rumor which we find hard to believe due to being well over 100 hp/per liter for a fairly large motor. Would be nice though.

    That thing is going to surprise ALOT of people. I've heard they are taking quite a bit from the SLS GT3 race car for this thing and it's going to be a track monster that is likely to topple many of the best "supercars" from Italy.

    Unfortunately, there is a rumor about a 6 figure price point that starts with a 5. I hope that is off by 250,000.

    The SL65 BS couldn't sell at 300, so pricing this higher just doesn't make sense with 458 Italia's in the world.

    I've heard the same but it's apparently going to be "barely" street legal and I've been told will eat 458's for lunch. I'm skeptical as well given the engine layout alone. But hey, they turned it into a successful race car...and if they raid the GT3 parts bin for this thing it's going to be ridiculous.

    If that is the level they are going for than this is pretty much something unrealistic for the vast majority of us. We'll see how far they take it I guess.
