A camouflaged Mercedes-AMG GT has been spotted testing again. This time, engineers were out cold-weather testing in northern Sweden. The car was heavily camouflaged so there isn’t a great deal to report. The photos are further confirmation that a faster version of the Mercedes-AMG GT is still part of the product plan.
Given Mercedes-Benz complete overhaul of its product naming policies, the jury is still out as to whether this will be named a Black Series model. It seems likely that this car isn’t the Black Series at all, but rather a faster version of the GT; a facelift of sorts. When a Black Series version does appear, we suspect the name will be dropped, although the current rumours, the name GT3 or GT-R, seem highly unlikely given the prominence of those names on competing vehicles.
The car spotted in Sweden features a new set of air intakes and front spoiler, positioned lower than previous test mules. At the back, new air intakes are visible between the taillights together with the single central exhaust, huge spoiler and redesigned rear diffuser.
We expect the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series to benefit from a weigh reduction with plenty of carbon fibre helping to reinforce this. Expect an increase in power too from the 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8. For this version, we’re expecting power to be pushed to around 550 hp.
