The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series Proves that Less is More
As we learned some time ago, the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is one bad boy. The car boasts 622 total horsepower, a top speed of 315 km/h with 0-100 coming up in 3.5 seconds, and has shed 154 pounds when compared with the "base" SLS AMG.

Seeing the Mercedes Black Series in the metal for the first time this morning at the LA Auto Show, we were struck by the sheer volume of carbon fiber that has been employed in its manufacture. From the massive front splitter to the towering wing out back, the SLS is festooned with as much visible carbon as we've seen this side of a Koenigsegg.
