Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series goes testing

Published: 14 August 2019

► Ultimate AMG GT testing
► Black Series label already confirmed
► Influenced by GT4 race car

It looks like the AMG Black Series badge is about to make a come back. New spy pictures show two heavily modified Mercedes-AMG GTs testing in southern Europe, and they’re unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Both mules sport bonnet with larger air-vents points to an increased cooling demands – and therefore an increased power output, and there’s also a new, central air inlet, too. At the rear both feature a quad exhaust layout and large diffuser – but one mule features a huge fixed-wing. 

We’re expecting Affalterbach to squeeze around 700bhp from a seriously tweaked version of the standard car’s V8 bi-turbo. There’s no talk of hybrid power, either: it looks like Mercedes is saving that for its AMG One hypercar at this point. 

Expect to see the new, most extreme road-going AMG GT yet next year.
