The Nurburgring circuit is the measuring stick many look toward to test a vehicle’s capacity in a single lap. It’s a hell of a track that puts the most performance oriented cars and drivers through their paces better than any other, that’s why claiming a good time is such a great thing there.

Cadillac is currently testing their ATS compact sports coupe there to get it ready for release, but today we’re looking at numbers boasted by the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series courtesy of Sport Auto, a local publication.

The German brute sliced 15 seconds off its less aggressive C63 AMG sibling to earn an impressive 7:46 lap time. That tucked the car right between the other two being tested that day: the Porsche 911 Carrera S which won with 7:44, and right ahead of the BMW M3 GTS at 7:48.

While calling any AMG tame feels like an affront to enthusiasts everywhere, there are serious go-fast features on the long-labelled Black Series version, including a staggering 517 horsepower (66 more than the lesser C63 AMG).
