Recently, another attempt was made by the same car but with a different driver to break the record. Before the latest record attempt of the current Black Series, it was eclipsed by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS last month with a new record of 6:43.300 for a street-legal car on the 12.9-mile layout of the ‘Ring, which was quicker than the sports car’s best time.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series P One is Not for Everyone
