It's basically an F1 pace car for the road.
Five years ago, Mercedes unleashed its F1 Pace Car, the CLK 63 AMG Black Series. And yet despite its age, it’s still an absolutely incredible driver’s car with the perfect combination of power, noise and bonkers. A road car like, in all honesty, doesn’t need to exist – if you’re the type of person who relies solely on Consumer Reports for car info. But for the rest of us cool kids, the CLK 63 AMG Black Series is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 with 500 horsepower. It’s got huge carbon-fiber fenders and forged wheels, and no rear seat.
0-60 mph happens in just 4.2 seconds en route to a top speed of 186 mph. Amazingly, that top speed is electronically limited. And that sound. Oh, what a sound that engine makes. So how does the old Black Series compare with AMG’s latest creations? Check out the video to find out.
