MERCEDES-AMG GT R: OUTSTANDING NORDSCHLEIFE LAP TIME FOR THE 'BEAST OF THE GREEN HELL'  Around the Nürburgring in 7:10.9 minutes

Stuttgart/Nürburg. Just ahead of the winter break due to weather, the new Mercedes-AMG GT R1 has set the fastest-ever lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a test drive conducted by 'sport auto'. In a time of 7:10.9 minutes, the new spearhead of the AMG model range was faster through the 'Green Hell' than any other road-going rear-wheel drive sports car ever tested by the German motoring magazine.

Through the Green Hell in just 7:10.9 minutes – the Mercedes-AMG GT R was faster than any other road-going sports car ever tested. The 430 kW (585 hp) 'Beast of the Green Hell' more than lived up to its nickname. A lap of the legendary Nordschleife, which ranks as the world's toughest race track, is the ultimate test of a sports car.

And this exceptional race track, the Nürburgring, is precisely where the Mercedes-AMG GT R has spent a large proportion of its development time. Numerous innovations and modifications bear witness that the road-going sports car has racing DNA in its blood. The foundations for such exceptional driving dynamics come courtesy of the front mid-engine layout with transaxle, a 430 kW (585 hp) V8 biturbo engine, extensively modified suspension, sophisticated aerodynamics, active rear-axle steering, bespoke tyres and intelligent lightweight design.
