Point of View videos are in vogue. From the "POV" perspective of the driver you can see the world from his perspective. Today it is particularly exciting, because we sit together with a How To Cars SPORTSCAR driver in the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door coupe.
Fastest sedan on the Sachsenring
In the video, we not only experience the power of the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + 4-door coupé, but also see how impressively this vehicle beats on the racetrack. With a time of 1: 32.59 minutes, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S is currently the fastest production saloon on the Sachsenring. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + 4-door coupe leaves. the BMW M5 Competition, the Porsche Panamera, but also the Nissan GT-R.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + 4-door coupe is undoubtedly a clear dream vehicle – we could experience it on our first test drive already in the US itself. The best components were just good enough for the vehicle. Under the bonnet slumbers a 4.0 liter V8 twin turbo engine until it is woken up by the driver. 639 horses (470 kW) are available between 5,500 and 6,500 rpm.
The maximum torque of a respectable 900 Nm is on the speed plateau between 2,500 and 4,500 Nm on the crankshaft. The top speed is regulated at 315 km / h. No wonder that this vehicle performs well on the Nordschleife, right?
The power goes first on the 9G-TRONIC and then on all four wheels on the road. In this case, on the closed circuit and on exactly this, the choice of tires plays of course also a superordinate role.
Dangers were the test or the time trial on 275/35 R21 tires on the front axle and 315/30 R21 tires of the type Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 on the rear axle.
The Sachsenring in Hohenstein-Ernstthal
The Sachsenring is considered technically demanding. At the same time it is one of the most traditional racetracks in Germany. Already in 1927, the first races took place in Hohenstein-Ernstthal. At that time, the road course was still temporarily staked, only since 1996, there is the permanent race track, which we know today as Sachsenring.
On a total length of 3.671 kilometers you drive through ten lefts and four right-handers. The maximum gradient is 10%, the maximum gradient is given as 12.8%. The longest straight is right in front of the start-finish and is 780 meters long. The racetrack width will be 12-20 meters. Sufficient space so the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S once really move in the border area. We wish you good entertainment with the point-of-view ride in the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + 4-door coupé:
