Yesterday, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series was spied testing around the Nürburgring. Today, the Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series was spied crashing on the Nürburgring. Not exactly the publicity Mercedes-Benz was hoping for, but as they say, there is no such thing as bad publicity. Though your supercar bursting into flames shortly after it crashed may be the exception.
The SLS AMG Black Series accident happened on the Nordschleife at the part called “Döttinger Höhe”, a long straight about 2,5km (1.5 miles) long where the Black Series can reach speeds close to 180 mph.
The E-Unit rescue team and the ambulance arrived within minutes to help these AMG test drivers who according to our photographer were uninjured.
Thanks to our good friend Andrus for the tip and GMotors for the photos
