Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO of Mercedes-Benz India, handed over the first AMG GT Black Series super sports car in India to supercar enthusiast Boopesh Reddy, who owns iconic supercars such as the SLS AMG, AMG G 63, and many other high-end Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is powered by a V8 engine with a flat crankshaft that produces 730 hp at 6700-6900 rpm and 800 Nm at 2000-6000 rpm. The V8 engine gives the car a completely independent personality and enables an especially impressive performance: the two-door vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in under 9 seconds, with a top speed of 325 km/h.

The power is transmitted to the rear wheels via the seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G dual-clutch transmission. It has been modified for use in the AMG GT Black Series and adapted to the increased torque of 800 Nm.

The sportscar features AMG Traction Control that enables the driver to get individual support for controlling the immense power of the Black Series. The level of support can be fine-tuned, providing the ideal level of assistance for each driver and each track situation. The system has been tailored to meet the requirements of the new Black Series and allows preselection of one of nine slip settings on the live rear axle.
