2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series First Drive Review: Tractable Track Toy

The 720-horsepower AMG GT is a track weapon in the truest sense.

Standing in the paddock of Miami’s new Concours Club circuit in June means having to endure temperatures of nearly 100 degrees. But it’s not the heat that will kill you – it’s the 90 percent humidity. The only thing keeping me from going totally insane is the stream of free Fiji water and the fact that soon I’d be in the driver’s seat of a certified German supercar: the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series.

Lurking under the hood of the GT Black Series is 720 horsepower courtesy of a twin-turbocharged, flat-plane-crank 4.0-liter V8. This car will hit 60 in 3.1 seconds on its way to a top track speed of 202 miles per hour. And if you needed any other evidence as to how fast the Black Series is, it’s the second-quickest production car around the Nurburgring with a lap time of 6:43.6. Only the Manthey-accessorized Porsche 911 GT2 RS does it quicker. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
