The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series has been again confirmed for launch, before the end of the decade. This would make the fifth and the most powerful iteration of the GT supercar.
The chance to see an even more powerful Mercedes-AMG GT than the GT R is logically quite large. You should simply take into account that the GT R with all its sickening power arsenal of 585 hp is actually less powerful than the new Mercedes-AMG E 63 sedan in top S trim.
The fact that the E 63 is actually using a 612 horsepower version of the same 4.0 V8 biturbo engine can only make us wonder what is the real full potential this glorious mill might reach. And, of course, why would Mercedes-AMG ever miss the chance to give its flagship the most potent engine in the line-up?
In a recent conversation with Top Gear, Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers has decided to give the rumor mill quite a crank. He indicated that the more powerful AMG GT is already in the works, but it needs a lot of time and attention to fully materialize into the dream machine he envisions it to be.
According to Moers, the top version must wear the Black Series label. Apart from the more potent engine version, Mercedes-AMG has also planed to do some serious tweaks to the aerodynamics and weight of the standard AMG GT.
But, for the time being, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is something for the future, not expected to come to the market before 2019 or even 2020. Until then we can fill our supercar dreams with the hottest Mercedes-AMG GT currently on the market, the wild GT R.
