"The new engine of the GT Black Series is based on the AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine with dry sump lubrication, but due to the numerous modifications it receives the new internal code M178 LS2. It delivers 537 kW (730 hp) at 6,700-6,900 rpm and provides a maximum torque of 800 Nm at 2,000-6,000 rpm. New camshafts and new exhaust manifolds have been adapted to the new ignition sequence and further improve gas exchange. As in the top model of the four-door AMG GT Coupé, the two Twin Scroll exhaust gas turbochargers are mounted on roller bearings, which further optimises their response behaviour. In the Black Series, however, the turbochargers are fitted with a larger compressor wheel, so that the two chargers can deliver a total of 1,100 kg of air per hour. For comparison: in the AMG GT R, this is 900 kg/h. 7,000 rpm is uncritical as a continuous speed, at 7,200 rpm the speed is locked off. And the larger intercoolers guarantee that they can always keep the charge air temperature in the best possible range. The special position of the new engine is also documented by the engine badge, which is in black. "
