This 7min 45sec Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate 'Ring Lap Is A Thrill To Watch

Christian Gebhardt can be seen putting in another incredible display at the Nurburgring, clocking the track’s fastest ever time for an estate car in the process

Remind me later

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the fastest wagon on the Nordschleife: the Mercedes-AMG E63 S estate. Its 603bhp, 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 was able to overcome a circa-two tonne kerb weight, yielding a 7min 45.19sec lap time. But as ever, this is an incredible time made possible by an immensely talented and surely slightly bonkers driver - in this case Sport Auto’s Christian Gebhardt.

We’ve seen some heroic laps from the man in the past, but we can’t remember ever him seeing crossing the gantry ‘finish line’ on the grass, as he does here. The word ‘commitment’ doesn’t quite describe this lap adequately enough.

Make sure you watch the whole lap through - it’s most certainly worth your time.
