- The ultimate evolution of the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series
The Mercedes-AMG GT made its debut in 2015 as a successor to the highly regarded SLS AMG. As the second sportscar to be developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG, it showcased the brand's commitment to producing highly advanced performance models. Shortly after its public release, Mercedes-AMG released the AMG GTR, which continued the development of the GT’s road-going chassis.
By 2021, Mercedes-AMG was ready to push the model’s already-impressive performance boundaries by bookending the GT lineup with a Black Series variation. Each model fortunate enough to be given the “Black Series” treatment was imbued with years of privateer and F1 motorsport experience, making for truly extreme driving dynamics. The fearsome M178 LS2 twin-turbo V-8 engine perhaps best exemplifies this impressive pedigree. Developed exclusively for use in the GT Black Series, it produces a remarkable 730 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.
Mercedes-AMG has since debuted the production version of the range-topping Project One in 2022, a $2.72-million hypercar that incorporates Formula 1 hybrid powertrain technology. To whet customers’ appetite, Mercedes offered a special edition of the GT Black Series exclusively to AMG Project One depositors, dubbed the “P One Edition.” The consignor claims to have been told by Mercedes-AMG that just 40 units were produced worldwide, including 24 for the US market. Each features a distinctive livery inspired by the Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance race car. The livery features Mercedes three-pointed stars, said to be hand painted, as well as teal accents inside and out, in a nod to Petronas, Mercedes’ longtime F1 partner.
Since its dispatch from the factory in 2021, this GT Black Series has been hibernating in heated storage, on a battery tender and under a car cover, according to the consignor. Remarkably, it showed just 32 original miles at the time of cataloguing. Desirable factory options include the optional Burmester high-end surround-sound package, Keyless-Go package, matte carbon-fiber crossbar, Lane Tracking package, and AMG carbon-fiber doorsill panels.
Shortly after delivery, the entire car was wrapped with XPEL clear protection film, then ceramic coating was applied and XR Nanoceramic window tint was installed. With the majority of Project One Edition GT Black Series delivered in Cirrus Silver Metallic, this Obsidian Black example, replete with window sticker, factory books, tools, and accessories, will surely appeal to anyone seeking a superbly presented, limited-edition Black Series.
