Mercedes hasn't built a Black Series model in a really long time, since the SLS if we remember correctly. Sooner or later, they are going to get back into the business, and we'll get new Darker Than Black models.
We can already imagine it; the year is 2020, and the current generation of the C-Class is about to be retired. Just like we said "this is old-school tech" about the naturally aspirated 6.3-liter of the W204, so too will the current 4.0-liter twin-turbo seem slightly out of place in a world of electric vehicles.

And just like the bones of the old C63 Black were already in place many years before it was revealed, so too are there better versions of the 4.0L. Currently, the C63 S boasts 510 horsepower, but rumor has it the E63 will get a 605 hp version of the same engine, going toe-to-toe with the RS6 performance.

Not only that, but the next C63 Black Series could have as much torque as an old Brabus Rocket. It's positively insane!

Not that there's anything wrong with the regular model, which is still the most powerful car in the compact performance segment. But we want to take a quick look at the rendering made by Theophilus Chin.

The styling package he proposes for the new Black includes a redesigned front bumper with extra aero elements, a bulging hood, lowered suspension and the obligatory flared fenders. And of course, you can't chop the air right if you don't have a DTM-style rear wing, made from carbon, of course.

Speaking of the SLS Black Series, Mercedes had an electric version wrapped in tin foil rough about 2013 or so. Whatever happened to that? Well, the company says its customers want more performance cars, not the green stuff. We're not rich enough to be called customers, but we kind of want the same thing. So, can we have the C63 Black, please?

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
