While most of us were busy swallowing large quantities of poultry, Mercedes-AMG was hard at work on the Nürburgring and tried to break one of the many lap times of the Green Hell.
The title of fastest SUV for the Nordschleife is the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC +, with a time of 7: 49,369. That is 2.3 seconds faster than the previous record holder, Alfa Romeo & # 39; s Stelvio Quadrifoglio despite a colossal shortage of two horses. That's right, the AMG 4.0-liter biturbo V-8 makes 503 hp while the Stelvio's 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 is good for 505 horses.
Perhaps the Mercury did not defeat the Italian by power, but with finesse. The warm GLC is equipped with air suspension with adaptive dampers, torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, a differential that can lock the rear axle and ceramic composite brakes.
