Mercedes Confirms AMG GT Black Series

New hotter version of the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe confirmed at the 2014 Paris motor show

Mercedes has confirmed it will build a Black Series variant of the AMG GT two-seat coupe. Speaking at the Paris Motor Show, AMG boss Tobias Moers said, ‘Sooner or later there will be a Black Series version.

‘There is more to come from the GT first, though; more variants.’ That’ll be a reference to the drop top model, which we’re expecting to see in 2015.

When asked if there is considerable potential for the AMG GT Black Series to be faster and sharper than the series production model, Moers simply replies ‘Oh yes.’

In the manner of previous Black Series models it’s likely that an AMG GT version will be distinguished from the standard car by an aggressive aero kit, more focused suspension tuning and an increase in power over the 503bhp AMG GT S, the current range topper, although Moers declined to reveal any specific details.

With Mercedes’ in-house tuning division set to launch a host of new models in the coming years, including a coupe version of the recently unveiled C63, we shouldn’t expect the AMG GT Black Series to debut before 2018.
