Mercedes-AMG’s 720HP 2021 GT Black Series Has Its Most Powerful V8 Ever

To date, Mercedes-AMG has released five Black Series models, with each seeking to further define the brand’s identity within the performance automotive industry. If you’ve been keeping up with the outfit’s previous releases, you’ll know that it hasn’t fallen short with its plan. Now, AMG set a seemingly insurmountable bar with its most recent project — the 2021 GT.

As the sixth platform in the company’s prestigious Black Series, the GT was destined for greatness. But with great power, comes great responsibility. To ensure that the vehicle was, in fact, worthy of the Black Series name, Mercedes-AMG’s world-renowned creative team has introduced a handful of performance-focused upgrades to the car, including a lightweight carbon hood, hatch, roof, and front and rear fascia. A newly-implemented rear wing, active aero flap, and front splitter are all fully adjustable, complementing the vehicle’s lowered and widened stance for greater aerodynamic handling. Below its sleek exterior, carbon components help to shave weight, while providing additional rigidity and stiffness. But the star of the show is surely the GT’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine, which is capable of producing 720 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, earning it a new identifier, and making it the most potent AMG V8 series engine of all time.
