    • Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic+ 4-door Coupe Hockenheim GP laptime track test

      The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic+ 4-door Coupe (could they make the name any longer?) impresses on the track despite being bulky and not based on the AMG GT sports car. It currently holds the 4-door Nurburgring lap record with an incredible 7:25.41 time.


      Some will argue that on a long course like the Nurburgring power can mask weight and chassis capability. So how does the Big Benz 4-door do on a tighter course?

      Quite well with a 1:52.8.

      Compare it to these Hockenheim GP times:

      43. McLaren 720S unknown 1:48.20 720 / 1428
      44. Porsche 918 Spyder unknown 1:48.50 887 / 1665
      45. Porsche 911 GT2 RS (991) unknown 1:49.10 700 / 1508
      46. Porsche 911 GT2 RS (997) unknown 1:49.50 620 / 1370
      47. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R unknown 1:50.50 585 / 1626
      48. Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991) Joel Meili 1:50.78 500 / 1461
      49. Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera unknown 1:51.00 570 / 1430
      50. Ferrari 458 Speciale unknown 1:51.44 605 / 1451
      51. Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C7) unknown 1:51.70 659 / 1606
      52. Gumpert Apollo Sport (Mk II) unknown 1:52.70 750 / 1200
      53. Audi R8 V10 Plus (Mk II) unknown 1:52.90 610 / 1635
      54. Porsche 911 GT3 (991) unknown 1:53.90 476 / 1439
      55. Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Uwe Sener 1:54.00 450 / 1512
      56. McLaren MP4-12C Spider unknown 1:54.10 625 / 1512
      57. Honda NSX (Mk II) unknown 1:55.30 581 / 1766
      58. Corvette Grand Sport Uwe Sener 1:55.30 466 / 1583
      59. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S Uwe Sener 1:55.40 522 / 1617
      Topping the 991.1 GT3 as well as the AMG GT S by a substantial margin is highly impressive. AMG is somehow magically masking the 4500 pound weight of this car.

        That's crazy fast. Too bad it's 177k here... 20k premium over the 63 non-S model too. But if the 2-door AMG GTs are anything to go off of, these will sell considerably below MSRP. Here's a 2018 AMG GT C Roadster selling for 40k under MSRP brand new. Click here to enlarge

        Damn that's NSX discount territory.
