AMG fans miss the Black Series. We know. We do too. But Mercedes doesn’t make them anymore. It may yet again, but in the meantime, prospective buyers have to look on the second-hand market.

We’ve brought you a few such examples that have come up for sale or auction, but nothing quite like this.

At its upcoming sale in Kissimmee next month, Mecum Auctions will sell off not one or two, but four AMG Black Series models – all as one lot.

Part of the sprawling Michael Fux collection, the lot includes a 2008 CLK63, 2009 SL65, 2012 C63, and 2014 SLS – all Black Series versions, and all in black (naturally). All that’s missing is the SLK55 that kicked off the series in 2006. But then, with “only” 390 horsepower, that was the least powerful of the five.

Like what you see? Mecum estimates the quartet will sell for between $850k and $1 million. But as unprecedented as this collection is, we could end up very surprised. And if you don’t like what you see, the Fux collection has plenty else on offer – including some other hardcore, limited-edition track machines like a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and 2011 GT2 RS, and a Ferrari F12 TdF and 458 Speciale Aperta.

Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series Gets New Set Of Rims Courtesy Of HRE 26

Long before AMG became Mercedes’ official performance division, it had named a name for itself by tuning some of the German automaker’s models.

One of them was the SL65 AMG Black Series, the hottest version of the previous-gen range-topping model that came with a staggering 670 HP and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque courtesy of the tuned 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12.

That’s about 100 HP more than the menacing AMG GT R, and probably very close to the next Black Series model that was scooped on the Nurburgring recently. Naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) took just 3.9 seconds, and top speed was limited to ‘just’ 199mph (320km/h), which makes it just 0.3 seconds slower off the line than the Beast of the Green Hell.

Now, it appears that there’s nothing that you could do to a Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series to make it hotter, but HRE might be on to something with their new multi-spoke rims finished in polished copper.

Described as capable of offering the ultimate street-performance by combining the purposeful lightweight design of race wheels with “an unmatched level of sophisticated design”, the wheels are part of the P103 series. They cost at least $9,600 per set, come in different sizes from 19- to 21-inches, and can be finished in a variety of colors.

This particular set doesn’t look half bad on this black example, so we guess if any owner wants to change something on his/her Black Series, they might want to try them out for size.

Mercedes-AMG is getting ready to take on the impressive Porsche 911 GT2 RS for the title of the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring with a range-topping version of the GT coupe: the GT R Black Series.

The GT R Black Series was confirmed by AMG’s head honcho, Tobias Moers, who said that it will arrive on the market close to the end of the GT’s life-cycle. Reports speak of the Black Series using an improved version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, which should produce in excess of 600hp.

Prototypes of the supercar have been spied testing on the Nordschleife for a few good months now, trying to hide their visual updates over the regular GT R, with the same applying to the car seen here.

The following video gives us the chance to can hear it growl on the famous German track, and it appears to be even more sonorous than the already great-sounding GT R.

Some of the convertibles on the market were designed that way from the ground up. Think Mazda MX-5 or Ferrari Ferrari California. Most of them, however, were derived from coupes and had their roofs chopped off – models like the Ford Mustang, Audi TT, BMW 4 Series, Bentley Continental GT, Lamborghini Huracan… or just about any other drop-top on the road today.
