Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is the new King of Nürburgring

Fastest series-production car on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife

The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series has lapped the 20.6 km (12.14 mi) of the Nürburgring-Nordschleife (excluding section T13) in 6:43.616 minutes, beating the Aventador SVJ‘s 2018 record by just 1.36 seconds. When included the T13, which is a distance of 20.8 km (12.16 mi), the time is 6:48.047 minutes. Behind the wheel was German pro racer Maro Engel.


So, here are the settings for the record run. The front splitter was extended to the “Race” position, meaning it was extended fully, while the lower and upper wing blades of the rear spoiler were set to the middle position. The adjustable AMG coilover suspension was lowered by 5 mm at the front and 3 mm at the rear to further enhance the venturi effect of the front diffuser. The camber was set to the maximum possible values of negative 3.8-degrees at the front axle and negative 3.0-degrees at the rear.


As for the adjustable anti-roll bars, Engel opted for the hardest of the three possible settings, and he adjusted the 9-stage AMG traction control between positions 6 and 7 — depending on the section of the track. Tyres? Well, the car was wearing the standard Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO tyres.
