PilotMercedes amg one nurburgring record





Pilot Maro Engel and Mercedes-Benz AMG One hypercar set a new dizzying record on the Nürburgring race track.


Production cars are usually slower and clumsier than dedicated race cars for multiple reasons, but the Mercedes-Benz AMG One hypercar will make you doubt that statement. The car went around the Nüburgring-Nordschleife in a lightning 6:35.183, the fastest lap made by a production car ever since the official standard for Nürburgring record runs was modified (currently using the same start/finish line in section T13 of the track).

Maro Engel was in the cockpit pushing the Mercedes-Benz AMG One to its absolute limit, and he had some words to say about it: “I didn’t expect that we would be able to set such a lap time with these track conditions. In some crucial areas of the track, it hadn’t dried completely yet and was therefore tricky," He added. "That was a special challenge."

Engel knows the track like the back of his hand; he set a previous record of 6:48.047 in 2020 aboard the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. That number was later broken in 2021 by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Manthey, which did a 6:43.300 lap. This last record is still a bit controversial since the 911 GT2 RS Manthey isn’t exactly a production car, it lives in the gray area where it’s only available in select European dealerships and only as a retrofit option in the US. But now the Mercedes-Benz AMG One has broken that record anyway, climbing the stairs to the production cars’ throne.

The AMG One is in reality a Formula 1 beast disguised as a street-legal car. It has a 1.6-liter V-6, turning at a rate of 11,000 rpm, the engine power is bolstered by four electric motors, two of which are attached to the front wheels, one is paired with the engine, and the fourth is hitched to the turbocharger. The result of this complicated setup is more than 1000 horsepower, according to Merc.
