Will the end of the combustion also mean the end of AMG’s Black Series vehicles? We are not entirely sure.
AMG is committed to electrification. Completely. The AMG ONE Supercar is taking hybrid technology straight from Formula 1 and implementing it in their most powerful road car ever. Your GT73e will do the same and with a little zap make the AMG line faster than ever. Even the C63 is in a transition to remove the piston force in exchange for electric motors. Last but not least, we know that Mercedes EQS will get the AMG treatment. But what about the special AMGs? Would you do a Black Series version?
An artist answered this question through a rendering. AutoEvolution reports that this EQS Black Series could be the extreme version of the EQS AMG sedan mentioned above. Features such as an extreme number of air vents are present on this car as they appeared Black series Cars of the past. AutoEvolution questions the use of air vents in the absence of an internal combustion engine. But don’t forget, brakes get hot, power modules get hot, and even with an electric motor, cooling is a high priority. So the vents on an electric vehicle are not out of place.
Maybe the wing is though. Granted, we know it is possible to make an EV car remarkably fast. However, the behavior of a heavy vehicle on the track is an entirely different story. While EV motorsport may gain more momentum in the future, EV technology lends itself more to luxury, if only for the way it can deliver its immense reserves of power.
Right now there is no indication that a Black Series EQS would ever be a thing. However, given the lineup of super-high-end hypercars from McLaren, Pagani, Gordon Murray Automotive and others, it would not be surprising that an AMG ONE Black Series would appear in extremely limited production form. Maybe it wouldn’t even be legal for the street and could bring the performance world to your ears with incredible performance numbers. After all, like these other hypercars, it would have no set of rules to follow. Not in the way AMG would really have done.
