Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series Options Get Priced

Yellow paint is only $18,000

The Mercedes SLS AMG Black edition is expected to be one of the more expensive sports cars you around. The Black edition adds to the already impressive performance of the standard version of the SLS AMG and has a number of options to up the ante even further.

Pricing for some of the options for the vehicle have turned up and they are insanely expensive. The AMG carbon fiber trim comes a standard, but if you want the extended carbon fiber trim package that will cost you another $5100. If you want fancier five spoke forged wheels in matte black, you need to cough up another $2800.

Mirrors with carbon fiber backs are $2200 and a special B&O Performance surround sound system will add $6500. If you want to carry the carbon fiber over to the engine compartment you need to cough up six grand. I always thought if I had the money to buy one of these cars I would go for the yellow version, but that yellow paint is an $18,000 option. The base price is expected to be somewhere around $300,000.

The only clues that it’s electric are a couple of small decals and the blue trim on the mirrors and front grille. Teaming up with Tesla is supposed t ...

Motorsports: Audi rumored to ditch Le Mans, DTM for F1

Oct 26 2014 2:31pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Motorsports, Audi If you've been scratching your head wondering how - between Audi and Porsche - the Volkswagen Group could possibly support two rival top-tier LMP1 programs at Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship, but stay out of Formula One entirely, you're not alone. In fact, Porsche was said to have been eying an F1 entry if Audi had internally blocked aspirations to return to Le Mans. ...
