SLS Black Series close to production ready and spotted finishing up testing - Ceramic brakes and over 600 horses
We have seen a lot of rumors about the SLS Black Series but the details are slowly but surely starting to emergy. First and foremost, there has been debate on the motor. It seems the M159 will be retained but with more aggressive cams, a higher compression ratio, and revised intake manifold. Expect over 600 naturally aspirated horses. It should also be capable of over 200 miles per hour stock. Additionally, carbon ceramic brakes are likely to be standard.
Do not expect any of this for less than $300,000 however which makes this a vehicle only few will be able to afford/justify.

Boo, no big turbo m157. I would love to see a tuned cls63 take this car out on the streets...

What a great way to send off the M156 / M159 with a motor making ~100hp/l stock. This should shut up those who harp about this --mostly irrelevant-- metric (for street cars) for AMGs.Current: 2012 C63 AMG PP | 2012 F25 X3
