The future range-topping car, first confirmed back in 2016 by AMG boss Tobias Moers, is now under development and is likely to receive AMG’s turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine in a state of tune that offers at least 638hp.
Set to rock even harder than the already maniacal AMG GT R, the Black Series is expected to get less weight, DTM-inspired bodywork, and more power from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8.
The GT Black Series’ extra power will be accompanied by a more focused chassis and aerodynamic set-up.
The 2020 arrival of the GT Black Series will mark a return for AMG’s most extreme moniker after a seven-year hiatus. The last Black Series model was based on the SLS and entered production in 2013.
