If you’re one of the rare SLS AMG buyers that wants even more power from the supercar, Mercedes-Benz has the answer for you. Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the 2014 SLS AMG Black Series, which packs even more power than the SLS AMG GT, but is also lighter to make it even more insanely fast.

The SLS AMG Black Series is powered by the same 6.2L V8 as the SLS AMG GT, but thanks to new camshafts and air intakes, the SLS AMG Black Series delivers more power. The SLS AMG Black Series should satisfy any supercar fan with its 622 horsepower and 468 lb-ft. of torque. In order to save weight Mercedes-Benz used carbon fiber and a titanium exhaust system to lower the SLS AMG’s weight 154 pounds.

The lighter weight and more powerful engine helps the SLS AMG Black Series reach 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 196 mph. New carbon-ceramic brakes help keep all that power under control and the SLS AMG Black Series rides on standard 20-inch forged alloy wheels.
