Eins, zwei, drei... SLS AMG Black, M135i and RS6 head through the mountains to join the TG party in France

Solarbeam Yellow paint. On a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, with the optional naked carbon-fibre aero package. This is a retina-kicking machine. As it hits its stride on the autobahn out of Stuttgart, everyone else on the road gets streaks in their vision and a brief auditory trauma. The re-engineered Black Series version is the SLS turned up to somewhere way beyond 11. Every time a tiny chink opens through the traffic, the car is onto it: V8 thunder cascading from its titanium exhaust, yelping forward like an over-scale firecracker. It is the emperor of the autobahn.
