Check Out an SLS AMG Black Series Get Swarmed by a Bunch of Car Spotters

Until just a few years ago, car spotting was not exactly a frequent phenomenon, but with the advent of YouTube and cheaper HD camcorders, it is now about as common as muck.

Pretty much any teenager that has a love and a minimum knowledge of cars can share his filmed sightings of supercars and the like on a video streaming website, essentially creating a story out of thin air and bringing it to the Internet masses.

The following short car spotting video is a perfect example of what is sometimes going on when following supercars on the streets of certain European cities.

Not unlikely, the driver of the silver Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series and his lady friend in the passenger seat mistakenly thought that their leisurely afternoon stroll through the streets of Dusseldorf, Germany, will be for the eyes of the passers by only.

As you can see, a myriad (OK, at least five) of car spotters pretty much swarmed the low-slung modern Gullwing almost everywhere it went, just so they can take that perfect photo or film the car from the best position possible.

The result is a bit on the hilarious side when seen from the outside, but we're trying not to judge since car-spotters do have their place in modern automotive culture, with some of them sometimes sharing vehicles that the average Joe will never get to see in real life, on the street.

In this case, the car is truly something special, as we are talking about the first Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series that we have seen sporting the Designo Magno Allanite Grey coat of paint. In other words, the way that the car spotters act is a bit understandable, alas a bit dangerous.
