The new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ has set a new lap record for a production four-seater with a lap time of the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife of 7:25:41. The record was set by Demian Schaffert, an AMG Development Engineer and former race car driver. Schaffert was involved in developing the driving dynamics of the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT.

The Nurburgring Nordschleife, or North Loop, is regarded as the world’s toughest race track and is used by many car manufacturers to test and develop their high-performance cars.

Standard equipment on the AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ included the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, active rear axle steering, electronically controlled rear axle differential lock and AMG DYNAMICS agility program. The optionally available Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires enabled the last grain of grip for optimum traction and acceleration around the “Green Hell”. The record lap was measured by the neutral experts of “wige SOLUTIONS”. The correct specification of the vehicle as well as the lap time was additionally certified by an independent notary public.
