If the Mercedes-Benz SLS is too pedestrian for you, or your spoiled progeny for that matter, M-B has something for you in the form of the SLS Black Series.

Under the hood, the V8 engine has been massaged to produce an extra 39 horsepower, though torque is down by all of 11 lb-ft. 150 lbs have been taken out of the car overall, thanks to things like carbon ceramic brakes and a titanium exhaust system.

Cosmetically, the car is much more agressive, and the bright yellow paint might even make you more visible at night. Just in case you end up doing something silly like knocking someone down on a bicycle in the hills outside of Rio.

Last Monday, we regaled you out with stories of Toyota coming to grips with the “new peak oil,” and other topics related to the growing gap (or lack thereof?) between global production and consumption oil. This week I’m feeling a little less apocalyptic, and little bit more indulgent. And really, why not celebrate those precious hydrocarbons while they’re still cheap and plentiful? This Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series may burn ‘em by the bushel, but it sure sounds good doing it. And though cars like the forthcoming 650 HP Shelby Mustang GT500 prove that performance is still alive in the 21st Century, high-revving, large-displacement, naturally-aspirated V8s like the AMG Black’s are going to be facing special challenges under future emissions standards. Which makes its gargling, chortling music all the sweeter to my ears…
