The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Black Series is a high-performance variant of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG grand tourer. It takes inspiration from the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 race car.
The SLS AMG Coupé Black Series is a high-performance variant of the SLS AMG Coupé inspired by the SLS AMG GT3. It includes increased engine power to 622 hp (464 kW) at 7400 rpm and decreased torque to 468 ft·lb (635 N·m) at 5500 rpm, increased engine redline to 8000 rpm, fully revised high-speed valvetrain with modified camshafts, adapted cam geometry and optimised bucket tappets featuring a special coating which is otherwise exclusive to racing vehicles, modification of the intake air ducting (de-restriction and adaptation to the new maximum engine speed), adaptation of the engine application and increase in peak pressure. This results in an acceleration time from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds (1/10 of a second faster than the SLS AMG GT), and a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h) - 1 mph (1.6 km/h) slower than the SLS AMG.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The SLS AMG Black Series was added in the Halloween Update as a high-end Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1273
- MAX rank: 1537 (+264)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1685 (+148)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +49
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 412
- Nitro Efficiency: 8/11.5/16
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Black Series has a maximum total speed of 286.6 mph/461.5 km/h at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. This makes the SLS Black Series the sixth fastest Class B car (excluding Elite Cars) in terms of total speed. It has a similar overall performance to the Zenvo ST1 from Class A with the exception of a slightly higher nitro boost at MAX+PRO (with or without Tuning Kit). Its closest performance rival is the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640.
While qualifying for events calling for Mercedes vehicles, the SLS Black Series is not the best choice, as the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014, Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition are better choices.
The SLS Black Series is sometimes featured as the dominant vehicle in the high B-class to low A-class TLE brackets.
