For a production car. 6:43.616. Dethroning the Aventador SVJ. I know when I post a ring vid they seem to go largely ignored, but whatevs. This is awesome. However it does sound very Un-AMG w/ that new flat plane crank motor, and an obscene amount of fake noise gets embarrassingly pumped into these cars. I don't really think it comes as a huge shock that this car was able to do it, but just look at how effortless it is. Sub 7's in a road legal car is still insane to me.

Every time I watch a 'ring video, i'm way more impressed with the drivers than I am the cars lol. I literally cannot imagine how much capacity it takes to memorize every turn, test each turn to the limit, then remember what you can and cannot do and where. Oh, and this obviously varies by car.

It's super easy to make one small mistake that costs you 1-2 seconds on a "normal sized" 2-3 mile, <15 turn course. Completing a near-perfect lap on a 20km course with 170 turns is just unreal

I dont think those cars, or the SLS in general were really appreciated for what they were in their time. But man what I wouldnt do for one of those today. That N/A V8 makes such glorious noises.
