As we know, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is one immensely powerful car - with that massive 6.2-litre V8, it is bound to be anything but. It isn't regarded as a track-focused car though, so it will come as a surprise to many that it is now officially the fastest production car around the Buddh International Circuit.

Driven around the track by British Touring Car Champion and AMG Driving Academy instructor Norman Simon, the big Benz posted a blazing lap time of 2:14.521, the fastest a series production car has ever gone round the circuit.

Speaking on the occasion, Eberhard Kern, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, "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."

Which car do you think can take the title away from the SLS?
