The new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series

Mercedes-AMG presents the most extreme version of the venerable GT, the 2021 GT Black Series. Inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT3 racing car, the sixth Black Series model from Mercedes-AMG is the perfect synergy of expressive design, elaborate aerodynamics, distinctive driving dynamics, and lightweight construction. The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is a super sports car that embodies the brand's rich tradition in motorsport, as well as its many years of expertise in developing track worthy vehicles that impress in every respect. Equipped with the most powerful AMG V8 series engine of all time, the GT Black Series can generate a staggering 720 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. 

Despite it already being renowned for excellent driveability, power delivery and torque progression, engine specialists in Affalterbach made extensive improvements to the tried-and-tested 4.0-litre biturbo unit. The results were clear: significantly more power than the previous flagship AMG GT, an even more agile throttle response, and maximum torque – all of which meant that a radical change was needed in the form of a new, 'flat' crankshaft.

"The new GT Black Series is our latest highlight and continues a tradition that started in 2006. The sixth version of its kind, the GT Black Series is another AMG milestone, and impressive proof of the incredible development expertise in Affalterbach. I am proud of the team who have truly created a unique super sports car, which now represents the absolute peak of our successful GT family. Its performance, looks, and driving dynamics are second to none. This project was a fantastic end to my work at AMG, for which I am truly thankful," says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board at Mercedes-AMG GmbH.  

A new arrangement for the V8 engine

A V8 engine's unique design allows for plenty of room to play when it comes to the integration of one key element: the crank arrangement on the crankshaft. Wherever located, this can influence the characteristics of the engine. Usually, there are two setups for V8 engines: the ‘cross plane' where the crankpins of the four pairs of cylinders are at a 90-degree angle – a setup that AMG has used in some previous V8 engines, or the ‘flat crankshaft',  where all crankpins are on the same plane with a 180-degree offset or ‘flat plane'.

The Black Series GT utilizes a ‘flat crankshaft', and benefits from superb smoothness and high torque at low rotational speeds. Another benefit of this new arrangement is the characteristic sound of the V8 engine. In order to make optimal use of the displacement and the performance potential of the 4.0-litre biturbo engine, the AMG engineers essentially moved the exhaust side into the hot internal V of the V8's two cylinder banks.  

Uniformly oscillating gas columns for even more power

Engine performance can be increased by using a ‘flat' crankshaft. In the flat-plane V8 engine, this looks similar to an inline four-cylinder model, except for the wider crankpins, which in the case of the V8, have two connecting rods each. Ignition in the flat-plane V8 jumps from one cylinder bank to the next, which further improves the gas cycle. The characteristic firing order with a 180-degree crankshaft angle offset is 1-8-2-7-4-5-3-6. This order creates uniformly oscillating gas columns in the exhaust tract and on the intake side, the resonance of which can be easily used to increase performance. An even greater advantage of this implementation is a more agile throttle response. 

The most powerful V8 series engine from Mercedes-AMG

The new engine of the GT Black Series is based on the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with dry sump lubrication, and has been given the new internal code M178 LS2 due to its numerous modifications. It delivers 720 hp at 6,700 – 6,900 rpm, and generates a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at 2,000 – 6,000 rpm. The engine features new camshafts and exhaust manifolds that are adapted to the new firing order and further improve the gas cycle.

Two twin-scroll exhaust turbochargers are mounted on anti-friction bearings, similar to the top-of-the-range AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, and optimize the throttle response even further. In the GT Black Series, the turbochargers have been given a larger compressor wheel, which allows for each turbo to deliver a total of 1,100 kg air per hour. For comparison, the figure for the AMG GT R is 900 kg of air per hour. 7,000 rpm is not critical as a continuous speed, and the speed is limited at 7,200 rpm. Larger intercoolers guarantee charge-air temperature is kept within the best possible range. The unique standing of this new engine is reflected in the engine badge, which is kept in black.

The engine of the AMG GT Black Series enables highly impressive driving performance: the two-door is able to rocket from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, and can reach 200 km/h in under nine seconds. The top speed is 325 km/h, although this is only sensible on cordoned-off racetracks.

Modified AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G transmission

As is the case for all two-door AMG GT models, power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G dual clutch transmission, which is located on the rear axle in a transaxle arrangement. For the GT Black Series, this transmission has been modified, and adapted to the increased torque of 590 lb-ft. Previous limits governing shift performance and response time have been extended, making it much more suited for driving on racetracks.

These modifications produce very different handling characteristics, as not only are the engine response and acceleration more agile – the drive programs, start-up characteristics, and gear changes are too. As a result of the increased starting revs, a more sensitive wheel slip control, and the racetrack ready sports tires, the Race-Start function is now more impressive.  

A 'torque tube' creates a connection between the engine and the transmission. It is made of carbon fibre, and at just 13.9 kilograms is around 40 percent lighter than its weight-optimized aluminum counterpart in the AMG GT. A structural component of the transaxle drivetrain, it creates an extremely flexural and torsionally stiff connection between the engine and the transmission. The ‘torque tube' permits a very direct connection for the drivetrain that is favourable to driving dynamics and also plays a role in the vehicle's balanced weight distribution. The drive shaft which rotates inside is also made from light carbon fibre.

Sophisticated aerodynamics for impressive driving dynamics

As with the AMG GT R and the AMG GT R PRO, aerodynamics experts and designers have worked in close collaboration to ensure optimized air flow for the GT Black Series. The similarities between the AMG GT3 and AMG GT4 racing cars is visually and technically stronger than ever before. In fact, the Black Series utilizes a significantly larger radiator air inlet that stems directly from the AMG GT3. The radiator trim has vertical struts in dark chrome. The wheel arch coolers are fed with direct air via the central air inlet, and thus there is no need for the two additional outer air inlets in the front apron. Sickle-shaped flics optimize flow of the air, which not only increase downforce at the front axle, but also improve brake cooling. The ‘air curtains' control and direct the flow of air towards the wheels. Together with the flics in front of the wheels, this serves to reduce the drag coefficient and increase downforce. The new design language of the GT Black Series combines maximum cool air efficiency with lower air resistance and an increased level of downforce at the vehicle's front end.

The GT Black Series features a carbon-fibre front splitter that has the two manually adjustable settings of ‘Street' and ‘Race', and can be adapted to meet various track requirements. When extended forward in its ‘Race' position, a front diffuser in the shape of a reversed wing is created under the front section of the vehicle. Depending on the speed, this element can be lowered even further by the rising negative pressure, which significantly accelerates the air flow on the underbody, drawing the car closer to the road, and increasing downforce on the front axle, creating the ‘Venturi' effect. The driver can feel these benefits in the steering: The Black Series can be steered even more precisely when cornering at high speed and exhibits even better directional stability. This feeling is much more pronounced during fast cornering and under high lateral acceleration, as the vehicle delivers an agile response with clear steering wheel feedback while remaining effortlessly controllable at all times. If the front diffuser is in the ‘Race' position, the downforce at the rear axle can also be increased further by the new rear aerofoil concept.

A hood featuring two large exhaust air openings

An additional motorsport feature of the GT Black Series is the new carbon-fibre hood, with two large exhaust air outlets fashioned from black finished carbon surfaces. The large outlets guide the warm air, which is fed from the diagonally positioned cooling pack, out of the engine compartment. This too is directly derived from motorsport, increases the vehicle's overall downforce, reduces air resistance, and improves air flow for engine cooling. The air is specifically guided around the A-pillars and side windows to the rear, increasing the efficiency of the new rear aerofoil concept. The seamlessly integrated louvres and exhaust air openings behind the wheels help to increase downforce at the front axle by means of effective wheel arch ventilation. To further optimize air flow, the GT Black Series utilizes significantly larger and wider sill panels which merge into vertical blades at the front and rear of the vehicle. Additional air cooling ducts are integrated into the side sill panels for brake cooling at the rear axle.

Two-stage aerofoil concept

The rear view of the AMG GT Black Series is dominated by a new rear apron with a large diffuser, two rounded twin tailpipe elements, side wheel arch ventilation and the innovative rear aerofoil concept. Both blades of the aerofoil are made from carbon fibre, and can be mechanically adjusted to adapt to various track conditions. The second lower blade was purposefully designed to be small and narrow – an ideal design for air arriving from the front of the car. The light carbon fibre supports for the aerofoil are painted in matte black, and have been specially designed to increase aerodynamic efficiency. They are bolted to the carbon fibre tailgate, which is also in black.

Another fascinating detail of the AMG GT Black Series is the moveable flap in the upper blade of the aerofoil. This active aerodynamic element, which improves longitudinal and transverse dynamics, can be electronically adjusted by 20 degrees, to suit the driving situation and selected AMG DYNAMICS mode. In a flat position, it reduces air resistance and helps the vehicle reach its top speed more quickly. In the inclined position, the flap improves braking performance and cornering stability as a result of increased downforce at the rear axle.

Four different activation strategies can be initiated, depending on whether AMG DYNAMICS Basic, Advanced, Pro or Master has been selected. Some of these strategies also involve driving dynamics recognition, for example, in Master: The flap is permanently inclined and extended up to 250 km/h. When the speed exceeds 250 km/h, it retracts in order to reduce the air resistance and thus reach the top speed more quickly. If the driver brakes suddenly or steers into a corner, the flap immediately returns to its extended position in order to optimize braking and cornering as a result of increased downforce and air resistance. The flap can also be retracted or extended by the driver using a separate button in the centre console.

Almost-full underbody paneling

The detailed aerodynamic work of the GT Black Series extends all the way to the almost-fully panelled underbody, which not only exceeds aerodynamic requirements, but meets thermal ones as well, in the form of heat dissipation. The flat underbody is equipped with specially designed longitudinal fins. These air channels have been meticulously optimized and ensure air flow to the rear diffuser. All measures are coordinated and interact with the new rear aerofoil concept. The cumulative result of all these measures is a downforce level of well over 400 kilograms at 250 km/h.

Carbon fibre as far as the eye can see

The lightweight carbon fibre roof, carbon fibre tailgate with small spoiler lip, and large rear windscreen made from lightweight thin glass, are all key components of the intelligent material mix and lightweight construction of the GT Black Series. At the front of the car, the glass used to make the laminated glass windscreen is thus thin and therefore lightweight. Another exclusive Black Series component is the coiled carbon fibre transmission mount. Additional carbon fibre shear panels in the front section, underbody, and rear, stiffen the entire aluminum bodyshell structure, and together with the lightweight integral carrier and the carbon tunnel cross, make the bodyshell even more stable. The elements form a connected network and increase the high driving precision of the Black Series in all driving manoeuvres. The carbon fibre shear panel under the engine is connected to the integral carrier and stiffens the entire front section and steering system, making the steering noticeably more precise. The integral carrier at the front axle is exclusively made for the Black Series using a lightweight aluminum construction.

AMG coil-over suspension with adaptive adjustable damping

The AMG GT Black series benefits from a double wishbone concept which provides precise wheel location with high camber and toe-in stability. This concept enables high cornering speeds and gives the driver optimum road feel when cornering at the extreme limits. In order to reduce the unsprung masses, the wishbones, steering knuckles, and hub carriers on the front and rear axle are made entirely from forged aluminum. The spherical bearings on the upper and lower wishbones of the GT Black Series' rear axle are a hallmark motorsport feature. Their design means they have no play, in other words, the toe-in and camber do not change even when subjected to high loads. The AMG GT Black Series allows for precise steering, gives clear steering feedback, and thus delivers better cornering performance, too.

As with the AMG GT R, an AMG coil-over suspension with adjustable spring preload is used in the Black Series, and features technology adapted to meet the specific requirements for extreme race track use with high damping forces. This technology, borrowed from motorsport, is paired with the continuously variable AMG RIDE CONTROL adaptive damping system. This system is electronically controlled and automatically adapts the damping on each wheel to the current handling situation, the speed, and road conditions. The damping characteristics are rapidly and precisely modulated by two separate valves for the rebound and compression forces in the dampers. These valves are new, are also based on motorsport technology, and react in an even more agile manner to fast suspension movements. For example, a harder damping rate, when cornering and braking, effectively reduces rolling movements. The continuously variable adjustment of the damping to suit the current speed also ensures the best possible road contact and thus enhances safety, even at high speeds.

AMG GT Black Series drivers can adjust the adaptive damping characteristics at the touch of a button via the AMG DRIVE UNIT or by selecting one of three AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes. The three modes are: "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport Plus". "Comfort" and "Sport" are the right choice for public roads. In "Sport", the damping is firmer, with a sportier body connection and less comfort, and can be chosen for race tracks when slippery track conditions prevail as a result of wet conditions. "Sport Plus" is ideal for use on racetracks, as it has a special feature: it can automatically recognize the quality of the track surface, i.e. whether the car is being driven on a flat Grand Prix course like Hockenheim or a bumpy track like the Nürburgring North Loop. It then automatically adapts the level of electronic damping in "Sport Plus". To develop this logic, the GT Black Series was tailored to a wide-range of different track types and the adaptation perfected.

Dual adjustable torsion bar featuring lightweight carbon fibre construction

The front axle of the GT Black Series is fitted with a dual adjustable torsion bar made of lightweight carbon fibre. The car has this short (and thus firm) connection as its default setting. Its counterpart at the rear is made of steel, is adjustable, and saves weight as a result of its hollow tube design. From the default "central" position, it can be adjusted to one level harder (short connection) or softer (long connection). The carbon fibre shear panel in the rear underbody supports high driving precision. This lightweight and rigid element stiffens the rear-end structure, and as a result, makes the body shell even more stable. Electronically controlled dynamic engine and transmission mounts were also retuned to further increase agility and deliver high-precision response and clear feedback.

Other suspension measures include the wide track at the front and rear, and the manually adjustable camber at the front and rear axle. This means that exceptionally high camber values can be set, which are only used for the purpose of increasing performance in motorsport on cordoned-off race tracks.

A Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO tire, specially customized for the GT Black Series, has been developed in collaboration with MICHELIN. As is only the custom in motorsport, this sports tire is exclusively available for Mercedes-AMG in two compounds: The standard fitted factory tire is the soft-compound MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO1A, whose side flank enhances the silhouette of the AMG GT Black Series. A 'hard compound' tire, the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO2, is also available as a retrofitting option for race track use at higher temperatures. The sizes are 10 J x 19 wheels with 285/35 ZR 19 tires (front) and 12 J x 20 wheel with 335/30 ZR 20 tires (rear).

Grip to the power of nine: AMG TRACTION CONTROL

For use on cordoned-off racetracks, in ‘ESP OFF' mode, AMG TRACTION CONTROL enables the driver to get individual support for controlling the immense power of the GT Black Series – all without any ESP brake intervention whatsoever. The level of support can be fine-tuned in order to provide the ideal level of assistance for each unique driver and track situation. The AMG TRACTION CONTROL system has been extensively tailored to meet the requirements of the new Black Series and allows for the preselection of one of nine slip settings on the live rear axle. Similar to the GT3 racing car, control is exclusive via the corresponding maps in the engine electronics and is without any intervention from the ESP system.

It is operated via a separate adjuster in the central console. It can also be operated while wearing racing gloves, as it is centrally positioned within the dashboard. Depending on the setting, the system permits more or less slip on the rear wheels – which proves to be very helpful in varying road conditions. Level 1 is programmed for driving in the wet with high-safety reserves. Level 9 allows maximum slip on the rear axle. Each setting is displayed on the adjuster itself and the instrument cluster's central display.

AMG TRACTION CONTROL has a major advantage over conventional systems in that it can anticipate driving situations through a friction coefficient evaluator and other data processing by a control unit within a fraction of a second. The maximum permissible drive slip on the rear wheels depends on the selected AMG TRACTION CONTROL level. During acceleration, when the wheels reach this level of slip, the traction control modulates the engine output so that the level is not exceeded and the vehicle continues accelerating with the specified slip. The system algorithms have been systematically developed as a double control variable model and not only control the engine's drive torque, but also control the locking level of the electronic differential lock.

Orange in the new Black

The interior design of the GT Black series emphasizes pole position: Exclusive nappa leather is combined with sporty DINAMICA microfibre in black and is accented with orange contrasting topstitching. The instrument panel and the newly designed lightweight door panels, which are now equipped with loop pull handles instead of conventional handles, are trimmed in black DINAMICA microfibre. Further orange contrasting topstitching, matte black carbon fibre trim, and the Interior Night Package are particularly striking highlights. The AMG carbon fibre bucket seats (not available in the USA, Canada or China) combine low weight with optimum lateral support. In Canada, the Black Series is equipped with AMG Performance seats as standard. The interior is also optionally available with grey contrasting topstitching.

Displays with AMG-specific graphics

The AMG GT Black Series features the fully digital instrument displays from the AMG GT family, and is equipped with an instrument cluster measuring 12.3 inches in front of the driver, and a 10.25-inch multimedia monitor on the centre console. The instrument cluster offers different designs with the three AMG-specific display styles of 'Classic', 'Sporty' or 'Supersport'. The 'Supersport' view with a central rev counter displays additional information, such as a prompt to shift up in manual transmission mode, also known as the 'shift light'. The visualizations on the multimedia display enable further vehicle functions to be experienced, e.g. with animated presentations of the driving assistance, vehicle and communication systems.

At your fingertips: centre console display buttons

The innovative, coloured display buttons in the V-shaped central console integrate the display and control of transmission logic, suspension, ESP, exhaust system, rear aerofoil flap, and the start/stop function. The TFT display buttons use intuitive symbols to show their functions and are easy to operate with just a small tap of the finger. As they still have a mechanical pressure point, they can also be operated whilst wearing racing gloves. The display buttons are supplemented by the two rocker switches for the drive programs and the volume control of the audio system.

Instant control: the AMG Performance steering wheel

The AMG Performance steering wheel of the GT Black Series is another trait inherited from the GT family. Characterized by its sporty design and intuitive operation, it features a flattened bottom section with a heavily contoured rim. The steering wheel rim is fully trimmed in DINAMICA microfibre, while the steering wheel badge exclusively features the Black Series lettering, along with the AMG logo. Aluminum steering wheel shift paddles for manual gear changes allow even sportier driving. By means of horizontal and vertical finger swipes, the integrated Touch Control buttons can be used to control the instrument cluster and the multimedia display.

As standard, the AMG steering wheel buttons have a round controller with an integrated display, as well as two vertically positioned coloured display buttons with switches. The AMG drive programs can be activated using the right controller. The selected setting is shown on the colour LCD display directly integrated in the controller.

The two freely configurable display buttons and the additional switches on the left side enable additional AMG functions to be controlled directly on the steering wheel. This means that the driver can concentrate fully on high-speed driving without having to take their hands off the wheel. Each required function can be depicted by a display icon, which the driver can set using the respective switch.

The AMG Interior Night Package also comes as standard. In this package, the shift paddles, steering wheel spokes, and seat insert in the AMG Performance seats are finished in high-gloss black, while the door sill panels are in black brushed stainless steel, further emphasising the car's sportiness.

Even closer to motorsport with the optional AMG Track Package

The AMG Track Package is available as an option in several markets. As it is only available in combination with the AMG carbon-fibre bucket seats, this package is not available for the American, Canadian, or Chinese markets. It includes a roll-over protection system, 4-point seatbelts for driver and passenger, and a 2 kg fire extinguisher (items exclusively designed for racetrack use). The lightweight bolted titanium-tube cage of the roll-over protection system consists of a main roll bar, a brace for mounting the seat belts, two rear braces and a diagonal X-brace at the rear. The system further increases the already excellent vehicle rigidity and thus also has a positive influence on the vehicle's driving dynamics. It also increases passive safety.
