The Mercedes-AMG GT R is currently the most extreme variant of Affalterbach's front-engine sports car, but more and more hardcore versions have been confirmed to be working recently. Like the previous SLS Black Series, the AMG GT Black Series is not expected to arrive until the end of the GT's life cycle. However, development is already under way based on this spy launch.
Our shooter found two GT test mules to lap in the German Nurburgring and when the brilliant brakes of the lead cars showed any sign, they were pretty tough laps. Both cars feature a dive plane on the front valance and a more substantial frontal splitter. Like the rear wing, the wheels and brakes look similar to the GT R's. But the exhaust gases are different. The quad exhaust tip is pushed into the edge of the rear bumper. A camouflage car also has extra pieces attached to the front fender for aerodynamics.
It's not too light when it comes to the AMG GT Black series and will be more powerful than the GT R, making 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque from twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S four-door coupe is capable of producing 630 horsepower and 627 pound feet in the same engine version, the Black Series is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is expected to be available in 2020 and means that high-performance models are likely to be offered as swan songs for the GT.
