By now, you should know it takes quite a machine to get Chris Harris excited. The guy spends plenty of time being nonplussed by a bevy of lustworthy hardware. But the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series seems to have done the impossible by getting under his skin. The ultra-exclusive, circuit-bred version of everyone's favorite gullwing features a wider track, substantially less weight, a revised engine and carbon ceramic brakes. With 630 horsepower on hand, the monster has no trouble dispatching the straights and corners of France's Paul Ricard with prejudice.

Harris turns two laps in the latest Mercedes-Benz monster, one with the intent of going as quickly as possible and the second with the aim of hanging the tail out past Jupiter. Seems like he succeeds at both goals. you can check out his hijinks in the video below for yourself. Set your jealousy to stun.

      I think the word "Black" on all of the AMG Black Series models just refers to the guaranteed pair of long, black lines left behind the rear wheels after pressing the throttle.

      honestly it looks like chris has to work quite hard to drive the car, it even surprised him a couple times with traction and stability controls on...hmm idk it just seems like he really wanted to love the car because he isnt always so forgiving of those attributes

      Chris Harris has fast become one of my favorite auto reviewers, second only to Jezza. But it many ways, they're equally as entertaining to watch, but they each have their own style. If it could be re-cast, I would cast Top Gear USA with Adam Corolla, Matt Farrah, and Chris Harris. I would SO watch that!

        That would be really cool, but Chris Harris is excellent on this Drive webseries as is.

        I imagine when the Top Gear cast moves on as they inevitably will, Chris Harris will most likely be one of their replacements. They just need to cancel Top Gear USA and pretend it never happened, like I do.

        yes, the all great FRD cars now use the torque tube that America has been using since the 1940s.. The Chevrolet Corvette, Lexus LF-A, Porsche 924, Porsche 928, Porsche 944, Aston Martin DBR9, Aston Martin DBS, Aston Martin DB7,Ferrari California,Alfa Romeo 8c, Maserati Quattroporte V, Maserati GranTurismo and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG all use torque tubes. (can't a single Brit boy ,make a car video without pathetic hating on America?) Correction, Cris, a "bonnet" is a little pink cap that baby girls wear.. 8 )

      Not a correct use of the term \"nonplussed\", but a fairly common error. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/nonplus
