2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series

The engineers and product planners who are responsible for the Mercedes-AMG GT sure are busy. Launched for the 2015 model year, the lineup is as follows: GT, GT S, GT C, GT R, GT R Pro, GT Roadster, and the now the craziest of them all, the new GT Black Series. As with everything previously Black Series, this is a very extreme car. Overzealous aerodynamic bodywork, a track-focused suspension setup, and a peak of 720 horsepower. This is not a GT car, despite the literal name of GT Black Series. The price? $335,000. That of course is the price Mercedes prints on the sticker. But this is 2021, where everything is priced to the extreme – and this example in Arkansas is no different.

Needless to say, this thing is totally bonkers. When it was tested at the Nurburgring Nordschleife in November 2020, it laid down a 6:43.616 lap time. That, at that moment, was the fastest lap time for a production car. That doesn’t come easy and shows you how serious AMG was developing this car, even after the GT-R Pro. While all the previous Black Series cars were fun to tool around on the street with, I don’t think this would be all that fun to take out on a Friday night with feeling sore in your lower back.

Now for the asking price. $570,000. That is $235,000 over the sticker. Yes, Black Series cars pull a real premium now, but theoretically you can still buy one of these from Mercedes. Actually getting a dealer to sell you one is a different story, but this car is still in production. Still, here is now and if you want it you probably have to pay a premium. Welcome to 2021.

  1. that is truly an insane price…there are SO many other choices for 500k+

  2. honestly curious why this is true: “Actually getting a dealer to sell you one is a different story”, if it’s still in production.

  3. I don’t see the point anymore. If you want to be the fastest around you’ll get embarrassed by a plaid, of which you could buy 4 at this price. If you want to have fun at the track there are so many better options at this price. And like you said, forget about it as a weekend fun car to go out to dinner with, unless you know a great chiropractor.

  4. @mike Likely dealers won’t sell it to you unless you are a VIP with them. Even if I had the money, walking in off the street to buy one isn’t possible.

  5. Agree with Marc, these cars are pointless. No doubt they are impressive, cool and fun to drive but where can you use them? Nurburgring or the autobahn maybe. Most buyers are 60 year old guys that will keep them covered in their garage and drive them to cars and coffee a couple times a year. Or maybe some young rich dudes that will drive around Miami or LA to show off. I’d much rather have the regular GT and drive it regularly.Same with the Porsche GT2RS. Pointless car for the street. Just get a Carrera GTS.
