    SLS AMG Black Series heavy downshifting

    Here is a video showing an SLS BS around track downshifting. You can compare the sound ta standard SLS (the matte black in the Video). Btw, the hardware and the gearing in the trany for the SLS BS is diffrent than the Black series. I just confirmed this from an AMG representative that just visited NBK in Qatar. @JRCART

    Here is another road drive in Oregan

    Yes the gearing of course is different we knew that from a long time ago when the specs were announced.

    It's a typo. He meant either different than the standard SLS or the SLS is different than the Black Series.

    Your right. And that's what I had in mind until Jim said otherwise In a different thread. Just wanted to point it out. Trannys in both cars are different. They even have different clutch packs

    I think the physical tranny is the same but there may be internal differences such as the clutch packs.
