Apparently the AMG GT BS is the new 'King of the Ring' after it broke the Nurb record on Monday. No official time yet but it's in the 6:43 range.

Than wtf was the 6:58 lap time a few months ago?


User avatar

hostboy  2d ago @benedekpuskas

6:58 is more like it. The AMG BS will barely be faster than the Viper ACR


User avatar

Cauf40f50  2d ago @hostboy

NO. they finely tuned the amg bs to perfection and can beat the gt2 rs mr albeit barely
remember its faster than the gt2 mr in hockeinring so why not at the ring


User avatar

benedekpuskas  2d ago @hostboy

I think 6:43 is possible. Just look at that huge rear wing!


User avatar

SpeedKing  2d ago @Cauf40f50

Actually I did say it wouldn't come close to the GT2RS MR laptime of 6:40. The question i have is what changes were made to the Black Series that would enable it to go from 6:58 to 6:43 and the answer would be quite substantial. I'm looking forward to seeing the onboard lap with GPS speedo to see how quickly it accelerates and the cornering speeds. Maro Engel who is as good as Lars Kern(Porsche) and Marco Mapelli(Lamborghini) was driving the Merc so the laptime was always going to be fast.

benni275  2d ago @SpeedKing

Maybe the 6:58 was the Sport Auto Time and is just not published yet? Would roughly fit to the difference we mostly see. Sometimes more, sometimes less...


User avatar

SpeedKing  2d ago @FastestLaps

The goss is that the AMG GT BS has been a regular visitor to the Nurb over the last 12 months where they've done shitloads of laps fine tuning the car so now that i know that the picture is becoming clearer for me. What's more is that AMG want to go faster and the 6:43 lap could be improved on so the rumour is that it will be back soon to do more laps and go even faster. The wonders of factory backing :)


User avatar

hostboy  2d ago @SpeedKing

The AMG is a front-engined car. It should be compared to the Corvette C7 ZR1 and / or the 812 Superfast for track performance. I am willing to bet 6:55 at the very best. Neither is as balanced as a mid- or rear-engined car in overall acceleration. They do have lateral grip advantage on figure-eight tracks and skidpads, though.


User avatar

SpeedKing  2d ago @hostboy

Front and rear-engine cars have their pros and cons on track. What is now clear is that AMG have done extensive fine-tuning at the Nurb and have a very fast track car as a result. The tech that goes into these cars is getting more and more advanced as time goes on so what is possible now wasn't 3 to 4 years ago.


User avatar

Cocobe  2d ago @hostboy

It has the same power (allegedly) as the ZR1, similar weight distribution, aero, and stiffness. But the C7 chassis just can't handle the power.

The 812 doesn't have the tire, the aero, nor the suspension stiffness to compete with a hardcore track car. It's a GT car.

That's an incredible laptime. Of course it's a German car on a German magazine, so there might be some favoritism going on... but it's still an incredible result, even if we consider that the car is on cup2R. It's still a relatively heavy, front-engined car which is probably slower than a Pista/720s on a straight line. And yet it bested by 2 seconds the Pista and the Mclaren 720s on Trofeo R.
I thought it would be slower. If it keeps producing this kind of performances on most tracks, it's gonna be a close battle with the sf90 stradale and the 765lt. After all, this car is even pricier than a 765lt, and almost as pricy as a sf90 stradale, so it makes sense. On a straight line though I think it won't be able to match the 765lt or the sf90...

If it were my money, I’d get the AMG. Equally fast on track and usable in the real world. it won’t go wrong all the time and it’ll hold value for years to come


User avatar

Tommi95  1w ago @Cocobe

I don't know, I think I would get the Ferrari, because it seems more comfortable than the Amg, faster on a straight line, greener and about as fast on a track. But if I had the money I wouldn't even choose, I'd get all 3 of them. Each of them is exceptional for different reasons


User avatar

Cocobe  1w ago

For a Front engined car, wow that is mighty fast. Sounds like a monster too.
The AMG GT platform has been the only front engined car that can put down 700hp to the ground.

 

User avatar

Tommi95  1w ago

Actually the c7 Corvette zr1 puts down around 765 hp, and the 812 Superfast puts down 800 hp, and they are both front engined. However, they are both slower than the Amg on a track

User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago

The AMG GT BS has most likely about 50 peak hp more than the GT2RS, similar weight and handling ability so it does have a small edge. The lap time difference at Hockenheim is 0.1 sec so it's bugger all.

Faster than Even GT2 RS MR


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @Lambolover

Won't come close to the GT2RS MR Nurb laptime. Rumour was the Merc did a 6:58 lap there so they went back for more fine tuning. Let's wait and see how much they can improve that time when they go there next shall we...


User avatar

benni275  1w ago @SpeedKing

well, if it really was 6:58 the gap really seems too big for me, even though it will be quick for sure. It is possible that it beats the Lambo Performante, but already the 6:47 time of the "normal" GT2 RS will be tough to beat. Will depend on how well-balanced it is, normally the Black Series models setups are extremely aggressive and too much aggressiveness can also cause problems on the ring...


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @benni275

The thing that most are oblivious to is that the Nurb is like no other permanent track on the planet. It's the closest thing that replicates driving on windy mountainous street roads complete with undulations, bumps, and bugger all run-off areas so that's why it's undeniably the best test track there is. Re the AMG BS i can see it matching or possibly bettering the Performante lap but as far as being "King of the Ring" nah i can't see it...


User avatar

Lambolover  1w ago @SpeedKing

I heard a rumour that it did a 6:40

More names and acronyms = better. If I had a job in Mercedes marketing and had the sizable salary that they are paid, I would feel uncomfortable if I didn't add any letters or acronyms during my time working there.

They probably have bonuses based on how many letters they add to the model name. Performance based bonuses. Which makes sense, of course :)

I often seriously wondered the following things:
1. Why this CAR forum is filled with racism, hatred, homophobia and xenophobia.
2. Why the user known as Dante/cosimo has not been banned several times by the admin for constantly posting racist and homophobic remarks against many communities as well as individuals, while still getting likes within ten minutes of his posts by Botan626, and adding nothing of value to the forum.
3. Why the scoring system is absurd and one cannot add laptimes from other sources.
4. Why one is humiliated for adding not-fast cars or motorcycles to the forum, while nothing is done to prevent blatantly non-car related talk.

lambolover, benedekpuskas and Hoppelmoppel123, it was fun interacting with you.

I assure you that this is the last you will see of me on this website, since I clearly cannot add anything of value, nor find anything of value here.

And the irony is that this website is pretty damn safe and clean as well. I read every comment and remove stuff that is over the line.

If a website about cars with some trolling here and there is now "unsafe space", then we are really doomed.

But what can I expect from a generation which has grown up on Twitter, FB and Instagram and doesn't know what Internet is or was meant to be and what freedom of expression is.

The idea of Internet and Word Wide Web was to create a network of servers which host websites. These servers and websites would be run by many different people with many different views and interpretations on what is acceptable and what is not. The Internet was never meant to be this homogenous silicon valley dictatorship with insane censorship and just one opinion and one world view.

But today unfortunately that's what it is forcefully morphed into. There is no Internet, just corporatenet. Only 5-6 websites which have monopolized all traffic and all eyeballs and they are owned and run by very few people, none of which I personally like or respect very much.

I like it, but it seems a little like a slow roll out by Mercedes. We all know their 4.0l v8 can produce 610 and 630hp, but for the GTR, they gave it only 585. Then for the GTR Pro, they give it the same but more aero. Now they have the GT black series... more aero again, maybe more power.

It seems they’ve purposely held back the car to make more variants of it and extend its production life and make more money.
