You could say we've met.
So trust us when we tell you that the SLS AMG GT Black Series, the fifth Black Series model yet to erupt from Affalterbach, is the best SLS yet. It's not at all the one we'd tap for a street drive or a road trip. In the imaginary fleet we maintain in the garages of our mind, that's exactly as it should be, since the SLS AMG GT Black Series could be the best track machine Mercedes has ever built.
Essentially a GT3 racer for the road, the SLS Black Series mates up perfectly with southern France's Circuit Paul Ricard, a fast track with two huge, open right-handers that offer textbook instruction on throttle modulation at the limits of traction. Figuratively, not literally. Don't go there and ask them for a book, or an outline, or even Cliffs Notes. They don't have any.
Here's what you do instead. Take a Black Series, take a set, and feather your way through what can feel like an eternity.
