Official pricing confirms a massive premium over lesser AMG GTs.
As the most powerful Black Series Mercedes ever released, the 720-horsepower AMG GT Black Series made a splash when it was officially revealed last week. We knew that it was one of the most exclusive AMGs yet and that only customers who had already ordered the AMG One would initially be able to have access to the Black Series.
However, there's good news for those who aren't AMG One customers as the most focused AMG GT is now available to order in Europe. The damage? A cool €335,240, which works out to $388,580 at current exchange rates.
That's a large chunk of cash considering that the AMG GT Coupe begins at just $115,900. Then again, the GT Black Series has undergone extensive development to make it worthy of its position as the GT flagship.
Not only does it accelerate to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 202 mph, but it's better than ever at blitzing its way around a track. It's got a carbon-fiber hood that saves weight, while motorsport-derived bearings found on the upper/lower wishbones of the rear axle improves handling and driver feedback.
As if it didn't look good enough, Mercedes also released a fresh batch of images of the GT Black Series in a striking orange shade known as AMG Magma Beam. With the black roof, black wheels, and black wing, it looks absolutely incredible. The color is exclusive to this car - we hopped onto the Mercedes-Benz German website and found that the color costs an insane €8,468 ($9,818). For exactly the same price, you can specify the equally retina-shattering AMG Green Light Magno.
Whichever color it's painted in, though, we can't wait to see how capable the Black Series is on track. With "only" 577 hp, the AMG GT R already lapped the Nurburgring in a time of just 7:10.92 a few years back - the Black Series will surely improve on this when it arrives in the US early in 2021.
