Render of upcoming AMG GT Black Series



Spy photographers have already taken shots of the AMG GT Black Series Prototype testing. This model will be the range topping model of the AMG GT. It won't be in showrooms until 2017 at the earliest, but thankfully we have this render to give us a little taste of what we can look forward to. Rumor has it that the Black Series will have horsepower approaching the 600 mark.

Interesting, I wonder what the cost would be like on a GT Black Series. I would assume they're trying to go after the 911 GT3? I'm not sure.

Would it be a full blown track day car?

Visually similar to the SLS Black Series, well done.

I'm sure it would feel at home on the track, but I'm sure you could drive it around town too if you wanted to. If the regular AMG GT is going for $100,000 ish, I am thinking that this is going to be somewhere in the ballpark of $125,000to $135,000. That is my guess.

Anyone here not liking the wheels they throw on the black series models? I wasn't much of a fan of them. If it was up to me to get a black series model, i'd probably put on an aftermarket set of wheels in black.

not quite the GT S is going to top out about $140ish Black will be closer to 200K IMO...

Wow, you really think it'll start that high? That's a pretty penny.

AMG boss Tobias Moers has confirmed the Black Series, but we shouldn't expect to see it until 2018. It will have a new aerodynamic kit, a stiffer suspension and a new wheel design. So plenty to look forward to.

Unless it's some breed of black series unlike what we have seen in other models, which in that case would help to justify the higher price point.

Sure, figure the SLS started at ~$200K and the Black Series came in north of ~$250K, believe it was $275 or something, so yea, similar jump to be expected on the GT...
