2021 Mercedes-AMG Black Series, 2022 BMW 2-Series, 2022 Nissan Ariya: This Week’s Top Photos

Mercedes-AMG unveiled the GT Black Series this week. The Affalterbach tuner’s newest sledgehammer packs 730 horsepower, a flat-plane crankshaft, and an aerodynamics package that puts many dedicated race cars to shame.
