Mercedes-Benz has brought its luxury speedster to nearly every major auto expo across the globe and garnered universal praise for assembling a muscle car with the looks to match its sheer power. For those looking to purchase the 2014 SLS AMG Black Series in the US, the automaker just announced its official retail value: starting at $275,000. Buyers can expect the SLS AMG to hit Mercedes showroom floors next month.
Performance-wise, the SLS Black Series is derived from the SLS AMG GT3 race and features a 6.2-liter V8 engine—increasing power up to 622 hp and 468 lg-ft of torque, while pushing the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and notching top speeds of 196 mph. Sound enticing enough?
