Merit Partners is pleased to offer this highly exclusive, 2014 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series variant in Mars Red. As one of only 132 produced WORLD-WIDE and 1 of 5 in this color, this latest edition of AMG’s Black Series has once again taken an exceptional machine and transformed it beyond expectations. Ultimately, given the limited production numbers and color, this particular SLS AMG is one of the rarest ever built by Mercedes.
Starting with the “standard” SLS’ naturally aspirated, dry-sump 6.2L V-8 engine, the AMG tuners massaged output from 563 to 622 HP using modified camshafts, a specially treated high-speed valve train, high-flow intake ducting, and remapped computer controls. Then, AMG’s Speedshift 7-speed automatic was mounted 10mm lower in the chassis to drop the center of gravity and located with gas-filled struts to eliminate any stress cycles. AMG also decided to drop weight (as if the car wasn’t already fast enough!) by using titanium exhaust, substituting carbon fiber vs. standard panels on the hood, intakes, mirrors, front splitter, vents, rear wing, and rear diffuser, and even adding a lightweight lithium-ion battery. To haul the Mercedes back to a stop, massive carbon-ceramic brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires are standard on 19-inch front and 20- inch rear rims.
Even with all these changes, the SLS AMG Black Series maintains a wonderful gentlemanly feel until it is fully unleashed.
