My FIRST DRIVE in the AMG GT Black Series! Future Arrival in My Garage

The brand new AMG GT Black Series has landed, and where better to head than the track for a first drive in the future addition to my garage! Join me to discover the new supercar inside out with a full walkaround, run through of all the details, and an opportunity to push it and experience what it's all about.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is the 6th model to wear the elusive Black Series badge, following the mighty SLS Black Series but with a long hiatus in between. Based on the AMG GT platform it dials things up a huge whack; with a new flat plane crank Biturbo V8 the power is up to 730hp and 800Nm, from 585hp and 700Nm in the GT R Pro, producing numbers like a 0-200km/h (124mph) in under 9 seconds and a top speed of 330km/h (205mph).
Naturally being the ultimate expression of track performance, it's all about the aerodynamics with a manually adjustable front splitter that extends 7cms and holds in place with stablisers to the gigantic front grille, matched to a vast rear wing even featuring an active aero flap in the centre of the upper deck. Cooling comes in the form of a setup inherited from the successful AMG GT3 race car and features large outlets in the bonnet, along with numerous other aerodynamic elements throughout the car. The interior matches with a titanium roll cage, bucket seats and harnesses, while the car is also fitted with a new set of Michelin Sport Cup 2 R rubber for the ultimate performance.
To put it to the test, we're at the Lausitzring in Germany with the opportunity to drive the AMG Magmabeam cars while giving chase to Bernd Schneider, 5 time DTM Champion. After a quick look around it's time to get straight out for a feel of what it's all about before returning to explore the full ins and outs in more detail.
The character is hugely different from that of the GT R Pro, with everything clearly dialed up to be more extreme. The increased power gives a significantly larger shove in the back and the cornering grip is to a new level, while the braking leaves you breathless thanks to the immense stopping power. The car is incredibly easy to drive fast, straight away, albeit with an exceptionally irritating engine sound playback through the speakers. That doesn't detract from an epic experience, and one that I cannot wait to experience more frequently when mine arrives in the garage!
Thanks for watching, Tim

It's the 6th Black Series model, soon to be a new arrival in my garage... and now it's time for a first drive to see what the new AMG GT Black Series is like! What do you think, excited to see the Solarbeam Shmeemobile?!

That thing sounds nothing like an AMG. Very disappointing sound. I'm curious if a Renntech exhaust could fix that.

@Kris I. you are not getting my question here... If I got it right. The AMG Project One Customers automatically got an allocation for an AMG GT Black Series . AMG Project One customers have the option to customize there AMG GT Black Series exclusively with the Mercedes F1 livery in Silver & Black or just pure obsidian black.

I can't understand why they went for the flatplane crank. I guess yeah it might rev quicker and higher but you loose so much emotion, and it's not as if the cross plane crank couldn't produce 730hp.

According to a well known source near the Nurburgring (one you know very well) the AMG GT Black series doesn't have the adjustable suspension of the GTR pro. is that correct? And if so, why? Buying a track focussed AMG and having to immediately go down to a tuner for some proper adjustability is just mad.
