Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series Could Boast 650-HP

Mercedes is continuing to weigh a decision to produce a Black Series version of the SLS sports car, with a horsepower rating as high as 650-hp.

In a recent interview AMG performance boss Christoph Jung commented that such a car, "makes a lot of sense". The vehicle itself would sit between the current 563-hp road car and the 600-hp GT3 race car (above). Impressive weight savings would be made, much like the GT3 car, although not quite as extreme. The 6.2-liter AMG V8 would then be tweaked to produce as much as 650-hp.

Expect other Black Series upgrades like a wider stance, light weight wheels, a lowered suspensions and even more impressive brakes. Combined, the package could deliver a 0-60 mph time of just 3.0 seconds.

If the SLS Black Series goes get the go ahead, look for it to debut around 2014 as a send-off for the current SLS model.
