They’ve done it, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is the new production car lap record holder at the Nürburgring Nordschleife! With a time of 6:43.616 the GT BS takes the title from the Aventador SVJ as the fastest car around the legendary Green Hell. You can bet I’m now beyond excited for the arrival of mine in a few months!

Since the first test mules a few years ago started appearing at the Nürburgring during the Industry Pool sessions, there has been endless speculation and guesswork as to what time the car would eventually achieve. After a flurry of recent records from the Porsche 918 Spyder at 6:57.00, then to the Lamborghini Huracan Performante at 6:52.01, before the GT2 RS at 6:47.44 and most recently the Aventador SVJ lapping in 6:44.97, it is now a record that AMG can claim for the first time ever.

The 6:43.616 time reflects the traditional 20.6km circuit as used by Sport Auto, with the full notarized lap under the new regulations coming in at 6:48.047 – all explained in the video. The car itself was driven by AMG GT3 pilot Maro Engel, in a customer specification vehicle with Mercedes-AMG published the full configuration from camber to damping settings that can be replicated by all customer vehicles.

A huge congratulations goes to Maro and the team for this immense achievement, I’m beyond excited for them and can only imagine what might even be possible on a completely dry track.

Mission success for AMG! With Maro Engel at the wheel, the GT Black Series has taken the Nurburgring lap record crown for a production road car with a notarized time of 6:43.616. I was already excited for the future Shmeemobile, but now even more so! What do you think it could do if it was fully dry?!

I am wonder how good the new 992 GT2 RS would be.

Shmee150 I just now watched this video but you killed it on the information it was very helpful to understand what is considered a new record specially when it comes to these amazing machines and when you get yours I can’t wait the solar beam yellow with all the carbon airrow is going to be absolutely astonishing 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

If you watch both onboards of AMG and SVJ you realise that it comes down to tyres..it is a Michelin record,Black Series was on rails compared to the Lambo..I would very much like to see cars on the same tyres..

The Porsche gt2rs has achieved a 6:47 more than three years ago. Mercedes isn‘t and won‘t be the „best“ car brand; but hey, nice try!
