The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has set the fastest lap set by any production car at the Buddh International Circuit recently. The SLS hypercar set a lap time of two minutes and 14.251 seconds beating its own record of two minutes and 16 seconds. The lap was performed by Norman Simon who is German born British touring car champion and also an instructor for AMG driving academy.
“We are extremely thrilled with the feat the SLS AMG accomplished on the Buddh International Circuit. The car has proved its mettle time and time again across major racing tracks of the world and it is only fitting that in India too, it holds the title of the fastest lap achieved by a production car," said Eberhard Kern, MD and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.
"Mercedes-Benz has a very dominant presence in the racing and motorsports arena, and this lineage is evident in our vehicle design and technology, both performance and aesthetics. The SLS AMG is the epitome of these elements making it the best in sportiness and fascination that Mercedes-Benz offers,” he added.
