Owning a car with over 700 horsepower is an exercise in restraint. Sure, you want to drive it every day, but life gets in the way. Therefore, the engineers in Affalterbach would like a minute of your time. They build supercars that can be driven in traffic, to run errands, or destroy everyone else on the track. So turn up your audio and let’s watch the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series in action.
Before you is the most powerful V8 they have ever offered. It makes 590 lb-ft of torque across most of the tachometer. This allows it to reach 62 mph in 3.7 seconds. This is their first version of the 4-liter twin turbo with a flat-plane crank. Much like the Shelby GT350 and every Ferrari, the engine is essentially two inline four-cylinders sharing a crankshaft. This allows for 8,000 rpm, which allows for massive turbos to make big boost. Essentially the same formula Ferrari uses for the F8 Tributo, and what you will see next year in the Corvette Z06.
