    • The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door tops the BMW F82 M4 Competition, F90 M5, Porsche 991.2 C4S, and The AMG GT S on the track

      This is bewildering but the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic+ 4-Door Coupe continues to set unbelievable laptimes. If you read it topped the F90 M5 that would not be too hard to believe but what about its own C190 AMG GT S Coupe sibling?


      The heavy 4-door is beating the lighter dual clutch equipped AMG GT S Coupe. It's unbelievable.

      Oh, and it is topping some other lighter high performance coupes as well:


      Sure, the Cup 2 tires from Michelin help but this is still a 4500+ pound German sedan doing it around the tight Mangy-Cours Club circuit.

      Just incredible!

        Very impressive sedan. Surprised the GTR finished ahead of the AMGs considering stock runflats are less sticky than cup2s. Ferrari was on race tires more or less so....

        That’s impossible. I know that weight isn’t as much an issue on such a long track, and the tires surely made a difference. But that sled has got to weigh close to 1000lbs more than a GTS, with worse aero and suspension. I can’t imagine corner speed being higher than the GTS, and certainly acceleration would also be worse (although I see it tested in the 1/4 at 11.3s - can that be right?). This doesn’t make any sense.

        Oh I’m sorry. I was reading an article in parallel about a car testing on the Ring and had that in my head. Duh.

        On Magny Cours? A tight track like that? Even more impossible. It’s just physics.
