AMG Black Series Collection Up For Grabs On Bring A Trailer

Black Series cars are two-door coupes built by Mercedes. They’re special because they’ve been extensively upgraded by the AMG Performance Studio, a specialty division known for turning regular AMG models into super performers.

The Black Series is all about creating the ultimate track car. They achieve this through weight reduction, engine upgrades, and aerodynamic tweaks, all while ensuring the cars remain enjoyable to drive on public roads. With only six models ever made, these cars are incredibly uncommon. They’re highly sought-after by collectors and driving enthusiasts alike.

Bring A Trailer is currently offering a unique selection: five Black Series models and a 2005 CLK AMG DTM coupe. Interestingly, all but one of these cars are black – the exception being the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series AMG ONE Edition. Here’s a breakdown of the cars that are currently being offered.
