Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Black Series crashes and goes up in flames at Nurburgring

Though there have been many crashes in the history, including the Lamborghini crashing into 10 brand new BMW motors and many others, but even this one - Black Mercedes SLS AMG crashing at Nurburgring has been a bad one.

Pictures are emerging that appear to show a big accident involving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series test mule at the Nurburgring. It appears as though the upcoming supercar hit the barrier at the Döttinger Höhe section of the course.

The good news is that the driver and passenger managed to walk away from the crash, long before the flames took over the wreckage. The crash took place at the Döttinger Höhe section of the Nürburgring, a long straight that stretches close to 1.5 miles and where it’s common for AMG models to clock speeds of close to 186 mph.

SLS AMG Black Series will have more of an aluminum structure as against the carbon fiber monocoque. It will be powered by a 583 hp SLS AMG GT engine and this along with lighter weight and enhanced suspension will project the Black Series as the most efficient model in the Mercedes Benz fleet. When exactly the SLS Black Series will make its way into showrooms is still uncertain. Estimates suggest that the same may be officially unveiled during 2013 which will make it appear in showrooms as a 2014 model.
