The GT Black Series debuted in July 2020 and revived the high-performance branding for the first time since 2014. Power comes from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft that revs to 7,200 rpm. The mill makes 720 horsepower (537 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters). It uses a reinforced seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox for ultra-quick shifts.
The GT Black Series can hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.1 seconds and reach 124 mph (200 kph) in less than 9.0 seconds. The top speed is 202 mph (325 kph).
The body uses pieces from the GT3 and GT4 race cars. The tweaks include a larger grille and a manually adjustable front splitter. There are big vents in the grille and fenders. A massive wing attaches to the rear, and it’s capable of electronic adjustment up to 20 degrees.
