It's official, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is indeed the fastest production car to lap the famous Nurburgring in Germany!
Back in 2018, Lamborghini’s Aventador SVJ arrived at the gates of the ‘Green Hell’ to take care of some business, to dethrone the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and lap the ‘ring quicker than the then-record of 6:47.30. The Aventador SVJ did just that, posting a record time of 6:44.97.
A few weeks ago the boffins at AMG arrived at the Nurburgring to ‘test’ the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, which apart from the Mercedes-AMG One, is the most powerful V8 AMG model ever produced, boasting 537 kW and 800 Nm developed by its twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 mill. Now, Lamborghini’s record has been beaten by the AMG GT Black Series which officially lapped the ring in 6:43.61 to become the 'King of the Ring'.
Previously, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series had already proven its performance at Hockenheim where it proved to be faster than the McLaren 720S and Ferrari’s Pista.
