MY UNLUCKIEST CAR?! First AMG GT R Roadster Nurburgring Laps

It turns out that I'm having quite a lot of bad luck with my AMG GT R Roadster! However, that's not going to stop the fun of taking it for the first laps on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, a rite of passage for any new Shmeemobile!

My AMG GT R Roadster has had a good stretch across Europe for recent filming in Italy and back to Germany, so now it's fully run in, it's time for some laps on the Green Hell. Nearly all of the cars in my garage have completed laps so it's the right time to tick the box for the GT R Roadster too, while also being my first laps of 2021 too. During Touristenfahrten, the Nordschleife is open as a public toll road with normal road rolls so a great opportunity to stretch the legs on the derestricted tarmac.

Having done many laps before with my original GT R and recently the GT R Pro, it's really interesting to experience some of the differences, however the most notable thing is by far and away this new problem it has picked up to do with the active aero. The AMG GT R features a lower front spoiler that extends while driving at high speeds underneath the car, which unfortunately has failed and that kicks in a safety system of limiting the top speed to 200km/h, or 124mph. Unfortunately this means on the Nurburgring that on a number of occasions it goes straight into the limited and it's a case of patience as the fix would require it to be sat at a dealer for an extended period - time we don't have on the tour.

This isn't the first problem with this car, which has quickly turning into one of the most unlucky cars I have owned so far, but that doesn't stop the fun of a few laps at good pace on the Nürburgring Nordschleife!

    My first Nurburgring laps of 2021, and the first laps for my AMG GT R Roadster! All Shmeemobiles have to loop the Green Hell at some point, and as always the GT R does not disappoint. Shame about that pesky problem though...

    Hi, do you know the name of the section from 13.30 to 13.36, the bit where you say “little jump”? I stood in the spectator area on the left there watching for a while before plucking up the courage to drive my first lap. Went round in an airport rental Golf diesel and even managed an overtake on the Karrousel itself! Awesome experience and life-long memories. I’ve just always wondered what the name of that section is and would love to find out.

    Glad to see you enjoying your cars before the world starts really sucking with the fake green EV take over. The rich getting richer because if they introduced hybrid at least there would be some combustion engine joy and with 100-200 mpg that would significantly reduce emissions but the progressive 1 world billionaires couldn’t get way more rich w/o a completely new market. Have fun💯💯💯 The quality of MB and BMW has gone way down. The new M5 is 50% German parts, they don’t even list where the rest are made which means 2nd/3rd world countries to increase profit and reduce quality and reliability.

    One would hope Mercedes AMG might learn something knowing that up to 2.27m car enthusiasts are hearing that a premium car is delivered with the wrong spec and failed to respond, then that they delivered it with a potentially dangerous suspension configuration and that the car was limited to 200kph due to a sensor malfunction. Begins to sound like elements of a lemon without manufacturer support.

    An other one which could be waiting for you... I had several times a Damper Fault coming up with no limitation what so ever what comes to driving but I had between ODO reading 3.900km and 5.500km in very short time period already 3 Engine-mount / Gearbox-mount active bearings swapped including the associates ECU for the matter. After that the error came up again driving towards the Nurburgring but then next day had disappeared again... so pending 4th active bearing. When dropping the tire pressure to 2.1-2.2 warm for the track and then letting the car sit over lunch break you can see error messages from ESP and ABS coming up which clear out when inflating the tires to over 2.2BAR again.... seems to be an electronic diva those GT-R's
