In order to understand what it takes to conquer the ‘Ring, let’s take a look at the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series record lap behind the scenes. In the latest upload of Inside AMG, Felix returns to shed light on how they shattered the record for production coupes (and sedans).
Much like we saw earlier from Team Corvette, the Mercedes-AMG team has a dedicated engineering garage at the Nürburgring. With the goal of beating the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, driver Marco Engel was clocked at 6:43.616. This is over a second faster than the Italian, and over 10 ticks faster than the Aston Martin V8 Vantage from 2019. Within a 24-hour period, he also pushed the AMG GT 63 S sedan to the top of the list, knocking the Panamera Turbo S to 2nd place.
