Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series also coming as a roadster for around $380,000
Hot on the heels of the SLS AMG Black Series Coupe which was just revealed officially last week is the announcement that the car will also come as a roadster. The idea of a track focused lightweight hardcore high-performance convertible is not anything new as Ferrari successfully did this Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spyder and Lamborghini as well with the LP 570-4 Perfomante. Now Mercedes is joining the mix with the SLS AMG Black Series Roadster.
The car will be basically identical to the SLS Black Series coupe sharing the updated motor as well as many of the lightweight carbon fiber pieces but will be slightly heavier thanks to the reinforcements necessary for a convertible. The car is expected to cost in the $380,000 range so more than the expected $350,000 for the SLS AMG Black Series Coupe.
Expect an official reveal next year along with extreme exclusivity.
