Just ahead of its India debut on 21st August, Mercedes-AMG’s latest sportscar for Indian customers, created the ‘fastest ever lap’ by any production car at India’s
famed F1 circuit, the Buddh International Circuit. The lap timing set at 2 minutes and 09:853 seconds is the fastest lap timing by any production car on the circuit. The speed test was conducted by FMSCI and the AMG GT R was driven on the track by AMG Driver Christian Hohenadel. Numerous innovations and modifications bear witness that the road-going sports car has racing DNA in its blood. The foundations for such exceptional driving dynamics come courtesy of the front mid-engine layout with transaxle, a 430 kW(585 hp) V8 biturbo engine, extensively modified suspension, sophisticated aerodynamics, active rear-axle steering, bespoke tyres and intelligent lightweight design.
