If it’s something that the new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is famously known for, besides being the new King of the ‘Ring, ultra-fast and very exciting to drive, that’s the eye-watering starting price. In Germany, one can have it from €335,240 (equal to $409,897), while on the other side of the pond, it has an MSRP of $325,000, excluding destination and delivery.
As you can imagine, whenever a build slot or a real car in this case, hits the used car market, it usually costs an arm, a leg, a kidney, a cornea, and some liver. And this apple does not fall far from the tree at all. It is listed on Mobile for €672,350 ($822,081) by a German car dealer specialized in selling all sorts of exotic and expensive machines, and it is ready for shipping—or so they claim.
This particular AMG GT Black Series is part of the Project One Limited Edition, available exclusively for those who have placed an order for the upcoming AMG One hypercar. It has a two-tone silver and black paint finish, numerous three-pointed star logos on the doors, rear quarter panels, roof and rear bumper, and Petronas-colored accents on the side skirts and around the multi-spoke wheels.
It shares the bad-boy looks of its Black Series siblings, complete with the special aero kit that features large air intakes and a huge carbon-fiber rear wing. Oh, and its odometer only reads 30 kilometers (18.6 miles).
As everyone and their pet knows, the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, which works in concert with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission, has been massaged to produce 730 PS (720 hp/537 kW) between 6,700 and 6,900 rpm, and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque at 2,000-6,000 rpm. That enables the rear-wheel-drive German supercar to shoot from rest to 100 kph (0-62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds and to hit 200 kph (124 mph) in under 9 seconds. Eventually, it will run out of breath at 325 kph (202 mph).
