In July 2018, the Lamborghini arrived at the Nürburgring to break the record of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, fine-tuned by Manthey-Racing, with the Aventador SVJ. Until now, with 6 minutes 44.97 seconds, the Italian supersport car was the fastest mass-produced car on the legendary race track. Now, however, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Edition has taken over the throne of Green Hell.
The warm-up lap record for the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4matic + 4 door on the extended Nordschleife was also broken as a warm-up. So far, the records have been measured on the 20.6 km long section, but from the end of 2019 the track became an additional 232 meters longer. Accordingly, these lap times already apply to 20,832 km.
It has a 4.0-liter, biturbo V8 engine in the nose of the roughest version of the AMG GT, which is capable of 730 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque here. From a standstill, it accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 325. Due to its active aerodynamics and redesigned body, it produces more than 400 kg of clamping force at 250 km / h.
The front carbon splitter was set to the race position and the rear wings were set to the middle position and the adjustable landing gear was turned deeper. The wheel tilt was -3.8 degrees at the front and -3 degrees at the rear, and the tires were Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MOs mixed into the Black Series under record.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series ran the original distance in 6 minutes 43,616 seconds and the full lap was 6 minutes 48,047 seconds. Check it out to run this great time with Maro Engel!
