Pune: The country’s largest luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz launched the much-awaited super sports car – the AMG GT Black Series, the most powerful AMG ever. The new AMG GT Black Series highlights Mercedes-Benz’s rich tradition in motorsports, as well as its expertise in consistent technology transfer from motorsport to series production cars.
Over the years, the Black Series models have built a reputation as the most exclusive automotive rarities that can do significant lap-times on a racetrack and are approved for roads. The newest edition to the Black Series family features the most powerful V8 engine of all time and the most expressive design, the most intelligent material mix, the most sophisticated aerodynamics, and the most distinctive driving dynamics.
The AMG GT Black Series has a V8 engine with a flat crankshaft that develops 537 kW (730 hp) at 6700-6900 rpm and delivers a peak torque of 800Nm available at 2000-6000 rpm. The V8 lends the car a completely independent character and enables a particularly impressive performance: the two-door vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, and 0 to 200 km/h in under 9 seconds with a top speed of 325 km/h.
Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India delivered the first ever AMG GT Black Series super sports car in India, to supercar enthusiast Boopesh Reddy, who owns iconic super cars like the SLS AMG, AMG G 63 and many other top-end Mercedes-Benz cars.
Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India, “We are thrilled to deliver the first-ever AMG GT Black Series in India, an automotive rarity in the world of performance motoring and the closest proximity to motor racing.
