Mercedes-Benz is set to unveil what we believe will be the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series in less than 24 hours, following this teaser image released on the company’s facebook page earlier today.
Although Mercedes-Benz is yet to confirm what the car will be, the obvious shape and the black car cover tends to indicate a light-weight performance orientated Black Series of the SLS AMG is on the way.
Mercedes-Benz tends to create AMG variants of many of its models and occasionally, when the demand is high enough and the engineers are let loose, a light-weight ultra performance AMG is unleashed with a Black Series tag.
The AMG Performance Studio in Affalterbach (near Stuttgart), who creates the Black Series models, traditionally only apply the performance treatment to two-door models, which have so far included the SLK 55 AMG, CLK 63 AMG, SL 65 AMG and C 63 AMG Black Series.
