Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following[***]:
The Black Series feels like a remastered evolution of the GT R. It is incredibly fast, showing an indicated 169mph at the end of the start-finish straight and 203mph on the fact sheet. Despite all that weight, mass and inertia, the McLaren 720S and Ferrari 812 rival is amazingly stable through the esses and that flat-out double-apex right-hander before you exit the in-field.
