7 Mercedes claim 4-door Nürburgring lap record

Cover for Mercedes claim 4-door Nürburgring lap record

Mercedes-Benz have released onboard video showing their new 4-door "Panamera killer" AMG GT 63 S lap the Ring in 7 minutes and 25.4 seconds.

Porsche Carrera GT, Ferrari F12 and Pagani Zonda F are some of the automotive royalties beaten by this large and heavy 4-door, showing just how much lap times depend on tyre grip that modern tyres provide, as well as high power and torque-rich turbo engine with efficient transmission.

Marketing, If a Profesional driver takes the CGT or F12 with the tormak like today and the slicky tyres of Michelin or Pirelli he can distroy this time.

We have to wait for the Sport auto test and pull out the average.

The grip on a circuit is the decisive factor to make a good time. But if you prefeer belive this marketing it is your problem not mine, i obly try to explain this ;)

...Pretty sure the Ring is a circuit...So, What you said is Pretty much meaningless, Plus i dont even count ring times fir comparisons, Fact is your talking about tuned supercars vs the GT63S. Grip is one thing that decides a fast lap.
