Having spent some more time behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
on track recently (stay tuned for our write-up), we can vouch for the no-B.S. credentials of the car when pushed hard. Here, it's pushed beyond hard, well into crazy territory, on the Nürburgring Nordschleife
One of the best aspects of the video, even more than the triple-camera view, the data display, and the 10/10ths driving, is the soundtrack. No music, nothing to get in the way, just a big V-8 screaming toward its 8,000-rpm redline.
In truth, the audio doesn't do the engine justice. It sounds even more hectic, even more frenzied in person. Something that big just shouldn't spin that fast, not in a production car anyway. But it does, and it makes 622 horsepower along the way.
The time? A brisk 7:25.67. It's not the fastest we've seen
, but it's damned quick.
Enjoy the show.
