The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ is again officially certified as the fastest production car within the “executive cars” category with a lap time of 7.27.800 minutes for the legendary Nuerburgring Nordschleife (20.832 kilometers) and 7.23.009 minutes for the 20.6 kilometer variant.
The 470 kW (639 PS) Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ set a new record with completely factory equipment and it was outfitted particularly well for this challenge. Its dynamic driving characteristics are made possible by the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, active rear-axle steering, an electronically controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential, and the AMG DYNAMICS agility program. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires were used during the record-breaking drive which every customer can also order as an option. These provided optimal grip, traction, and powerful acceleration out of the 73 curves in the “Green Hell.” The aero package, which is also optionally available and mounted on the record-breaking vehicle, also increases stability at higher speeds and reduces the Cd value.
