Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series Options Get Priced

Jan 25 2013, 9:49am CST | by

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.

Mercedes-Benz SL400

Naturally aspirated engines seem destined for the endangered species’ list as forced induction makes its way into nearly every mainstream category. The latest example is the new SL400 roadster Mercedes announced today. It’s a direct replacement for the SL350 roadster with the only real change centered around the new 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6.The new biturbo V-6 might be down on displacement from its 3.5-liter predecessor, but it makes up for it with power ...

Mercedes M-Class to become GLE-Class next year

Aug 26 2014 2:38pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Crossover, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury Automotive naming schemes can get a little bit weird as they age. Just look at the impending BMW lineup with a rear-wheel drive 2 Series and front-wheel drive 2 Series Active Tourer on sale together - of course, to say nothing of the fact that the 2 Series is actually the successor to the 1 Series coupe/convertible in the States. Crazy. However, Mercedes-Benz might be taking step ...

Vanishing Astons? Current DB9, Vantage Fail to Meet Airbag Regs; U.S. Models in Jeopardy

Aug 20 2014 2:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Two Aston Martins were missing from last weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours, but since the foursome of “Q” cars and a new V12 Vantage S roadster distracted the crowd, no one noticed. According to petitions the automaker sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Aston Martin would have revealed the next-gen DB9 and Vantage this month (and very likely at Pebble) were there not years of losse ...

Filed under: Spy Photos, Sedan, Videos, Maybach, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury It used to be that if you wanted a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, your choice pretty much came down to which engine you wanted, and that was that. But into the new S-Class, Mercedes is integrating several other model lines and extending its flagship family (both literally and figuratively) as far as it will stretch. In addition to the sedan (already available in two wheelbase lengths in certain markets, in only ...

Smart ForFour Edition 1

Jul 30 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The second-generation Smart ForFour has a lot of redeeming qualities about it. The fact that it’s bigger than the ForTwo is already a plus on its own, but its front section also looks a lot more modern than I thought it would. So yeah, I’m a fan of the ForFour and I’m actually excited to hear that Smart decided to introduce the ForFour’s own "Edition 1" model.It’s just like what big brother Mercedes has done with some of its recent models, only with a ...
