    And the fastest laptime around Laguna Seca Raceway in the 2013 MotorTrend Best Driver's car competition goes to... the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

    The SLS Black Series proves it does what it was built to do, kick ass on the racetrack. The MotorTrend competition did not exactly have competitors on the level of the SLS Black Series (Viper TA not used?) and the SLS AMG Black Series finished over a second ahead of the second place car which was the SRT Viper. The Nissan GT-R with the Track Pack option finished in third place behind the Viper. This was an easy field for the SLS to clean up which it should considering the price disparity between it and the others.

    The full results are below. For impressions of the SLS Black Series in the competition, check out yesterday's article.

    The viewers back lash on motor trend has been felt about them not comparing the SLS AMG Black to the Viper TA. But they just simply ignore it and move on it's not even brought up.

    So when I see a Viper TA on the actual brochure I'll then begin to wonder. The Issue I see is that we will never truly Get a SLS AMG Black to a Viper TA until a long ways down the road.

    But on another note this thing looks pretty sweet and 2800lbs with 680 bhp 640 ft lbs!

    Awesome but they need a street version. I suppose the new ACR will be that.

    They honestly tore the Viper apart.
