My SLS AMG Black Series meets the latest member of the family, the brand new AMG GT Black Series, for the first time! The game has moved on, and the 6th car from AMG to wear the Black Series badge is brutal to the highest degree, and with the AMG GT3 present too, we can see exactly how beastly it is.
It's no secret that I've been a big fan of the AMG GT model; having owned the GT R, GT R Pro and very soon the GT R Roadster. Combining that with my dream addition to the garage of the SLS AMG Black Series, I've been waiting for the arrival of the new AMG GT Black Series for a long time. After taking a first look at the brand new model in a visit to Affalterbach, it's a truly special opportunity that for the first time the new car sits alongside its ancestor, my Mystic Blue SLS BS has the honours.
Joining the line-up as well we also have the AMG GT3 racecar, from which the GT Black Series derives many elements including the aerodynamics and cooling, as well as visual cues like the front grille. Seeing them side by side gives a real sense of quite how brutal and aggressive the new Black Series really is, while seeing exactly what has translated over.
After a short drive onboard the SLS BS to the facility housing the GT BS, let's take a look at the cars together, an opportunity for me to dream as to how my garage might look in future if I'm lucky enough to get an allocation.
Thanks for watching, Tim
