The Green Hell has a new king! The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series dethroned the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ as the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring Norschleife in Germany. The AMG GT lapped the iconic racetrack in a time of 6:43.616 mins, beating the Lambo's record by just over 1.3 seconds. The time was notarised and certified on the 20.6 km long track, without the straight section at T13. With the T13 straight, the time was 6:48.047 mins. Mercedes-AMG says that the attempt was made in less than ideal conditions with the track temperature at 10 degrees and not being fully dry in certain patches. The car could have gone even faster according to the company.

Mercedes had set up the AMG GT Black Series as it would on any other regular AMG GT. The carbon fibre front splitter was extended to the 'race position' and the lower and upper wing blades of the rear spoiler were adjusted in the 'middle position'.
