The rumor mill has been running at full speed for a while now, but now the Mercedes-AMG boss has confirmed it: within two years the blazing hot Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series will hit dealer lots.
Tobias Moers told the Australian blog caradvice.com.au that there is still a version of the two-door AMG GT in the barrel. The CEO says that development has already started and the ‘Black Series’ designation is guaranteed.
We have known this name will eventually be associated with Mercedes-AMG GT range for some time, but now Moers has also confirmed for the first time it will only be reserved for two-door AMG models. Black Series AMGs receive extra power and external adjustments, coupled with chassis upgrades. Previous cars that wore the Black Series badge include the SL 65, CLK 63 and SLS AMG.
2020 is indicated by Moers as an “interesting” year for the market introduction of the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. Earlier spy images also showed that Mercedes is working on adjustments for the AMG GT. Then there was also the suspicion that we were face to face with an AMG GT Black Series, but instead the prototypes materialized into the facelifted GT.
The strongest Mercedes-AMG GT is now the GT R running the AMG V8 4.0-liter biturbo engine, which pushes 585 hp to the tarmac. This same engine can be found in the newly unveiled AMG GT 4-door Coupé. In terms of power we can expect 640 hp and 900 Nm for the future Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series.
