The Black Falcon team from Germany won the 2013 edition of the Nurburgring 24 Hours with the number 9 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3.

Although the race was delayed by nine hours due to rain, it did not stop Jeroen Bleekemolen, Bernd Schneider, Nicki Thiim and Sean Edwards from coming on top, giving the German luxury vehicle its first victory in the endurance race. Second place went to number 25 BMW Z4 GT3 while the third place finisher was the number 22 Rowe Racing Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 at the Green Hell.

Black Falcon had an edge with the Dunlop tires, which was ideal for the highly unpredictable conditions. The red flag was dropped after nearly six hours into the race that caused the delay. This break gave drivers the opportunity to make repairs on their vehicles following incidents in the earlier part of the race.

After the re-start, the race to the finish was between Black Falcon team, Rowe Racing team, and Marc VDS Racing team. However, number 9 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 of Black Falcon emerged victorious in the end.
