@Admins
Please move this time to the full Nordschleife and add Wolfgang Kaufmann as driver.

I've read the article in Autobild http://www.autobild.de/artikel/nordschleifen-duell-david-gegen-goliath-319094.html You can use google translate. It seems that an ESP that cannot be shut above 60 km/h is to blame for the slow time. I guess Mercedes-Benz went too far to make sure the G-Class wont fly off corners end preffers their clients being safe. Despite this rediculous lap time. If the ESP could be shut off the car G55 would certainly drop a couple of minutes in the right hands.

There is something wrong about this lap time, for sure! Sabine Schmitz made a lap in a Ford Transit, the time was 10 minutes and 8 seconds. With all my due respect nobody in this world can convince me that, a stock Ford Transit is faster than a G55 AMG. And I'm also sure that no Polo 1.2 can beat the car either.

it couldnt be slower than some Mazda MX 6 or Toyota MR2. if it's full lap then it should be around 2 mins less

Thank you for the fast reply, DeDe! :)

Then this one is on the wrong place. @FastestLaps Could you move this time to the full Nordschleife, please?

@DeDe
Do you know if the time was done at the regular or the full Nordschleife? I am asking because I just noticed the Polo's laptime is already added at the full layout.

It is correct indeed. I still have the AutoBild Sportscars article on my computer. :)

It was driven by Wolfgang Kaufmann.

So I guess it's correct.

Oh, sorry:

"But ultimately it is about a bet, and the little GTI has won: 9:46,20; G: 11:27,50..."

I think it's incorrect, a Ford Transit van can make it around the Nordscleife in much less time than that, and the G55 AMG is a performance SUV.

I think that it is correct :D
I think that G55 is slower than VW Polo 1.2 on track.
Power is nothing with out good chassis.

A pretty rare laptime, first for the G55! 8D
