Wider track, stiffer springs and dampers and a voice that's part Lemmy from Mötorhead, part a few dozen M134 Gatling Guns, and part 12V71 Detroit Diesel through straight pipes. And that's a completely exaggeration-free statement. Either way, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series can shred some tires.

This week on Chris Harris on Cars, Chris pops across the channel to give the the new 630hp SLS AMG Black Series a round rogering at Circuit Paul Ricard. And you know it'll be good because he's not paying for tires. Or brakes.

But it's not all about hoonage. Chris also takes us through some of AMG's weight-savings kit, which is also what you get for your mega-buck investment.
