The new 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 63S has set a new lap record around the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife race track.
The 630 hp AMG GT 63S set a new time of 7.23.009 minutes around the 12.944 mile long track in the “luxury car” category. This time is 2.3 seconds faster than it previously set in 2018. The record breaking AMG GT 63S was fitted with the optional extra Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres and the AMG Aerodynamics Package. For safety reasons a racing bucket seat with four-point seat belts was fitted. Apart from that the car was completely standard.
Even though I’ve been accompanying our GT 63 through its development for several years now, it’s always impressive to see the wide spread we have been able to achieve with this exclusive vehicle. This is especially true after the recent slight revision. On the one hand, the four-door coupe is comfortable and equipped with many intelligent safety features for everyday driving, and on the other hand it offers this extremely high level of driving dynamics and precision, which we have now been able to demonstrate once again on the demanding Nordschleife.Said Demian Schaffert.
