Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow…

Always had a thing for the color combination. It marks the decor of my favorite football team – Go Steelers! – they were the colors used for Rock-O’s trunks in Rocky II and Rocky Balboa, two of the best movies ever – and they make for a striking combination on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, which was recently unveiled in the City of Angels by the world-famous car company.

Not sure if this’ll be available in other colors, but that doesn’t really matter as much as the 8,000 RPM of which this hottie is capable. Nor does it matter as much as the 622 horsies under the hood – that’s 59 more hp than the standard SLS – which enables the AMG to top out at speeds of around 196 mph. If that’s not enough reason to lay your dinero down, consider the improved center of gravity – thanks to sitting lower in the chassis – enabling you to maintain control even as you’re going from 0 to 64 in 3.5 seconds.

Now all you need is a racing partner.
