Stuttgart's cruise missile

Its been rendered and rumored, but here are the first spy photos the 2013 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series.

Caught at a testing center in Germany, the prototype has a wide body kit with a modified front fascia, revised side skirts and extended fenders. We can also see high-performance brakes and larger rear wheels which hint at some changes to the rear axle.

Under the hood, rumors suggest the 6.3-liter (6,208cc) V8 engine could deliver 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) and 677 Nm (499 lb-ft) of torque. This will likely enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 322 km/h (200 mph).

More power + more handling = more HOONING!!! Simple AMG equation, German muscle cars without any drawbacks

As much of a Benz fan as I am, I'd rather have an SLS Roadster and wait for my Challenge/Stradale version of the 458 to do my dirty work. The SLS Black will be a rare and sweet sight to see, however.

Now this is AMGs opportunity to push the envelope further and go guns blazing with horsepower and speed. It should sell this to those who already have the SLS and dissuade hardcore Ferrari/Mc/Lambo/Porsche buyers. The car is already too wide and low to make it docile as per 'Mercs' day to day livability ethos and it should be more than an SLS+, its gotta be much much more with much less weight.

I respect all of you guys getting excited over this but even if I had the money I wouldn't go for this. For some reason this is not a dream machine for me. Sorry if I offend anyone.

Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God. Brilliant. All other cars should worship this car as a god and give burnt offerings to it and go to car church and ask it for forgiveness for their car sins.

That has got to be the baddest paint job I've ever seen on a test car. Already excited for this car.

put the 5.5L V8 Biturbo inside with close to 700hp and the rest should be done in Black series way also!
