Production Car Track Record

The AMG GT R has set a new production car lap record at Mount Panorama before the Bathurst 12 Hour. It dropped a lap time of 2:16.5 which is almost 9 whole seconds faster than the prior record held by the AMG GT S.

9 seconds is a vast amount of time.

Check out the 360 view of the lap!

Not bad at all and that should mean that even with regular street driving we'll get some great off the line power, power when taking over other vehicles and putting it through the sorts of turns and stretches of roads we're used to.

Still, I think more people will be buying these just for the fact its at the top of the food chain rather than these numbers.

I agree. If you look at the vloggers even that are typically supposed to be doing entertaining things that own these, they don't really do anything. I think SOL has the more publicized one, has the renntech package on it, but still doesn't do anymore than tunnel runs.

They're amazing performing vehicles, but people aren't really buying them for that, it's just a plus.
