2014 SLS Black Series, 1300 Miles, Ultra Rare, Pristine and Investment Worthy!!
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a front mid-engine, 2-seater, limited production sports car. The car was the first Mercedes-Benz automobile designed in-house by AMG. The car, which has gull-wing doors, was the successor to the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and was described by Mercedes-Benz as a spiritual successor to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing.
SLS stands for "Super Leicht Sport" (Super Light Sport). The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was assembled largely by hand, with its chassis and aluminum body shell produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria and then transferred to Sindelfingen, Germany for assembly, with its engine being hand built by AMG in Affalterbach, Germany.
Upon its introduction the SLS AMG's 563 HP was according to AMG "the world's most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine" ever produced.
The vehicle was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Compared with its predecessor, SLR, the SLS is, per Mercedes-AMG head Tobias Moers, the faster car on the track, both in the hands of normal drivers as well as race drivers which may be attributable in part to the SLS's lightweight aluminum frame. The Mercedes-McLaren SLR came in at 3,860 pounds. The SLS, however, has a curb weight of just 3,573 pounds on standard wheels. It also had a ceramic-composite brake option that reduced the unsprung weight of the wheels by 40%. The SLS also came with a carbon-fiber shaft for its dual clutch transmission. For these reasons, the SLS AMG achieves a lateral acceleration of 0.99, improving upon the Mercedes-McLaren SLR, which achieves a 0.97 figure.
The SLS AMG was designed to be a modern 300SL Gullwing revival by Mark Fetherston. The SLS AMG has also adapted the feature of wing doors that swing open upwards on gas struts, and must be closed manually as AMG engineers decided against the 90 pounds that auto-closing systems would have added to the car. In case of a roll-over, the doors can be fully detached to allow the occupants to leave the vehicle.
The SLS AMG Coupé Black Series is a high-performance variant of the SLS AMG Coupé inspired by the SLS AMG GT3. It includes increased engine power to 622 HP and decreased torque to 468 lb⋅ft, increased engine redline to 8000 rpm, fully revised high-speed valvetrain with modified camshafts, adapted cam geometry and optimized bucket tappets featuring a special coating which is otherwise exclusive to racing vehicles, modification of the intake air ducting, adaptation of the engine application and increase in peak pressure. This results in an acceleration time from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, tenth of a second faster than the SLS AMG GT, and a top speed of 196 MPH.
The vehicle is 150 lbs lighter than the standard model. This is accomplished by increased use of carbon fiber in body panels, mechanical components, and the space frame. Further, a switch from steel to titanium for the exhaust system reduces weight by 29 lbs.
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission is installed 10 mm lower in order to achieve a lower center of gravity for the vehicle and is braced against the body by gas-filled struts in order to avoid stress cycles. The transmission's "Sport plus" and "Manual" modes feature faster shifting speed. The downshifting throttle blips are more audible. The new temporary M mode enables the driver to activate manual mode without having to remove a hand from the steering wheel, by pressing the "up" or "down" shift paddle once.
Other features include electronically controlled AMG rear-axle differential lock with a shorter rear-axle ratio, new AMG RIDE CONTROL performance suspension with tauter basic tuning and electronically controlled two-stage damping, coil-over spring retainers to enable adjustment of wheel loads, AMG speed-sensitive steering with newly defined power steering characteristic, AMG ceramic brake discs with increased hardness, wide flared wings with an added width of 13 mm and 26 mm rear on each side, darkened headlamps and black surrounds for the rear lights, carbon fiber-reinforced plastic front splitter, carbon inserts in the side sills and the rear apron made of carbon fiber, enlarged air intakes with carbon-fiber flics, carbon-fiber bonnet with central air outlet.
This Black Series has just over 1300 miles and is absolutely gorgeous. Optional equipment includes AMG Black Series Forged Wheels ($1000) Bang and Olufsen Sound System ($6,400) and Black Series Telematics Package. Car is complete with books, Keys, Battery Tender and Car Cover. Total production was 130 units making this one of the rarest, investment grade vehicles available.
