What is the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series? Let's begin with the fact that this is the kind of vehicle that keeps your car awake at night. This absolute monster of a car has a twin-turbo V8 engine that pushes upwards of 720 horsepower. This production car has its roots in GT3 racing. In fact, the aerodynamics of the Black Series is extremely comparable to that of a GT3 racecar.

Earlier this year, Mercedes decided to take their new formula of the AMG GT to the Nürburgring for a test run. In only 6:43:616, their machine was back in record time. The previous production car that held the record for being the fastest around the Nürburgring was the Lamborghini SVJ at 6:44:97, making Mercedes a total of 1.354 seconds faster.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series was running with its factory Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO tires and a slightly more aggressive tune for the suspension and the camber. In fact, the team lowered the rear of the Black Series by 0.2 inches in the front and 0.1 inches in the rear, producing this record-breaking achievement.

The AMG GT Black Series was caught going well over 186 miles per hour down the straights and even convinced the pilot, GT3 driver Maro Engel, to state that the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series was, "significantly faster than my racecar".

What do you think of the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series? Do you think it will hold its record-breaking title for long? Do you think any of the new production cars will be able to beat the Black Series? Which one? Leave a bump and let me know in the comments.
