How many production AMG cars out there can do a hot lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife in just 7:25 minutes and then take your behind to the opera? None, come to think of it, since the SLS AMG Black Series is the fastest ever road-going AMG on a circuit.

No less than 631 hp and 635 Nm (468 lb ft) of torque are delivered by the most powerful evolution of the naturally-aspirated 6.2 liter V8 under that gargantuan hood, but it seems that not all people are happy with that.

For those types of people there are the tuning specialists from PP Performance, who can apparently make the M159 even more powerful without resorting to a supercharger or a pair of turbos.

Their Stage Two package increases its output to no less than 685 hp and 658 Nm (485 lb ft) of torque, which from our knowledge makes it the most powerful naturally-aspirated AMG engine in a road-going car.
