My new AMG GT Black Series at the Nürburgring, what an insane experience! We're heading straight to the Ring to go full send and soak up the madness of the experience in a car that's a lap record holder. The performance is immense, and certainly needs some processing!
Setting off from Stuttgart on the Black Series Tour, after a visit to Mercedes-Benz and AMG, we're on the Autobahn with the GT Black Series, SLS Black Series, C63 Black Series, and driving in the AMG G63 to head to Nürburg for the first laps to be undertaken in the GT Black Series. Having broken the lap record for a production road car in original factory specification with a time of 6:43.6s (despite less than ideal conditions), it's really a car that I knew would be something special, and it does not disappoint.
Having done laps before with most of my cars, including the McLaren Senna, I had some kind of idea where this would be positioned, but didn't realise the step up over the GT R Pro and GT R Roadster would be so dramatic, it's really quite breathtaking. During the Touristenfahrten session, there's a great opportunity to get out there for a series of laps to get a feel for what it's about, starting with my first two at the wheel. TF sessions are public toll roads, so timing and racing is illegal, this is purely for fun and to see what it's about on the de-restricted one way road.
