Mercedes-AMG GT R: outstanding Nordschleife lap time for the "Beast of the Green Hell"

  • Stuttgart/Nürburg. Just ahead of the winter break due to weather, the new Mercedes-AMG GT R has set the fastest-ever lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a test drive conducted by "sport auto". In a time of 7:10.9 minutes, the new spearhead of the AMG model range was faster through the "Green Hell" than any other road-going sports car ever tested by the motoring magazine.

    Through the Green Hell in just 7:10.9 minutes – the Mercedes-AMG GT R was faster than any other road-going sports car ever tested. Hence, the 430 kW (585 hp) "Beast of the Green Hell" more than lived up to its name. A circuit of the legendary Nordschleife, which ranks as the world's toughest race track, is the ultimate test of a sports car.

  • And this exceptional race track, the Green Hell of the Nürburgring, is precisely where the Mercedes-AMG GT R has spent a large proportion of its development time. Numerous innovations and modifications bear witness that the road-going sports car has racing DNA in its blood. The foundations for such exceptional driving dynamics come courtesy of the front mid-engine layout with transaxle, a 430 kW (585 hp) V8 biturbo engine, extensively modified suspension, sophisticated aerodynamics, active rear-axle steering, bespoke tyres and intelligent lightweight design.
