    New SLS AMG Black Series Nurburgring spy video clearly demonstrates a tweaked M159 6.2 liter V8 is under the hood

    When the SLS AMG Black Series was first spotted testing rampant speculation followed on what motor would be under the hood. Everything was mentioned from a M275 V12 Twin Turbo to even the new M157 Twin Turbo V8. As more and more testing reports came in from people who saw and heard the car testing as well as leaks from Mercedes AMG themselves it has become clear a revised M159 with output slightly above the 600 horsepower mark will be employed.

    The video below of the car testing on the Nurburgring has very good audio of the engine sounds, you be the judge.

    Can always be better. When mine comes in I will likely drive for a couple months then off to the fabricators for a TT set up.

    Don't disagree, that will be pretty insane.

    I think the SC route has exceeded expectations so now it is time to try with a different platform.

    It would likely be a couple of years off and I am sure I will change my mind but one thing for sure is that the same group will be involved.

    The one qualification is the world is in for a lot of pain because of the election so the SLS may actually end up being a used Hugo and the TT set up might be a couple of hair dryers attached with duct tape!

    What's the consensus on this becoming a collector's item and appreciating in value? I think it will be nothing short of spectacular, considering their recent run....

    I will be modifying mine almost immediately. Not to the same extent as the clk but will nonetheless do something.

    So boy racer-ish it reminds me of JDM cars. In the past MB would do things classy, but not anymore. That's a shame really. I do like the motor in it though, compressing 6.2 litre of air/fuel mixture at 8,000 RPM should be fun.

    I'm also thinking that this might well be the last Black Series that we see. It's the flagship model for MBZ, what could they possibly make into a Black Series next unless they come out with a new model ??

    The more i look at this car, the more i get disappointed. Specially when you at the previous ultimate black series car:

    Well it wasn't a black series, but it was the ultimate version of the SLR. It was elegant, classy and understated. The same can't be said about the new kid on the block though.

    Times change bud. Have you ever driven an SLR ? Doesn't even compare to the balance and great manners the SLS has....and the SLS BS is going to be beast on the track. Was never very impressed with the SLR styling either.
