In its latest video, <em>Evo'</em>s Jethro Bovingdon pits the ultimate versions of these German sports coupes against each other and finds two of the fastest cars the magazine has ever lapped around its track.<br /><br />In one corner, there is the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mercedes+sls+amg+black+series/">Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series</a> that sits as the pinnacle of the company's halo model. It relies on the classic setup of a V8 mounted in front powering the rear wheels. On the other side, there is the 911 GT2 RS with a turbocharged flat-six mounted at the back, spinning the rear wheels. It was conceived to be Porsche's ultimate expression of a turbocharged 911, and while it's a few years old, Bovingdon shows that it's up to the task of racing a more modern rival.<br /><br />Both of these rear-wheel-drive monsters are more than capable of some fantastically smoky power-slides, but they also show how great the last generation of sports cars was. <a href="/2014/04/04/porsche-911-gt2-rs-mercedes-sls-amg-black-series-evo-video/#continued">Scroll down</a> to check out the video.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/04/porsche-911-gt2-rs-mercedes-sls-amg-black-series-evo-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Porsche 911 GT2 RS vs. Mercedes SLS AMG Black in battle of who can shred more rubber</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/04/porsche-911-gt2-rs-mercedes-sls-amg-black-series-evo-video/">Porsche 911 GT2 RS vs. Mercedes SLS AMG Black in battle of who can shred more rubber</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 04 Apr 2014 19:59:00 EST.
