The SLS AMG 'Black Series' made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2012. Only 150 'Black Series' examples of the SLS AMG were produced for the world, and each was presold prior to delivery. The hand built 6.2L V-8 engine produces 622 horsepower with an 8,000-rpm redline. A revised suspension uses the coil-over AMG RIDE CONTROL and AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system.

The SLS AMG 'Black Series' is proving to be an astute collector supercar.
As new with just over 2,000 miles on the odometer, it is one of only five produced in Mars Red making it the rarest of all the available factory colors.
This example is estimated at $500k to $600k
