David Coulthard with Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series at Goodwood [video]
Mercedes-Benz has published an awesome video featuring David Coulthard behind the steering wheel of the impressive SLS AMG Black Series. The super-sports car tackled the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill course.
Despite the sensational power of the SLS AMG Black Series, David goes easy through the course, which will host hundreds of racers and cars during the event. The course record was set in 1999 by Nick Heidfeld who managed to finish in just 41.6 seconds with McLaren MP4/13 Formula One car.
The SLS AMG Black series is powered by an uprated 6.2 liter AMG V8 with 631HP (464 kW) at 7,400RPM and 635Nm (470 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph). The SLS-AMG Black Series is just 1,550 kg (3,417 lbs), so the power/weight ratio is 2.45 kg/hp.
Other special features include coil-over AMG RIDE CONTROL performance suspension, AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system and the weight-optimized forged AMG light-alloy wheels with newly developed sports tyres. There is also an electronically controlled AMG rear-axle differential lock and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission. Available as an option, AMG can fit the sports car with special Aerodynamics package.
