Mercedes-AMG GT R Ring Taxi Goes Wild, Passenger Shows Her Raw Emotions

When you're on the Nurburgring, a number of inches can make quite a big difference. And we're not talking about the distance between the asphalt and the grass. Instead, we're referring to one's position in the vehicle, as riding shotgun instead of driving yourself might just lead to even stronger emotions. And if the Mercedes-AMG GT R is involved, that's almost a certainty.

As the Green Hell aficionados among you know, one of the easiest way to get around the Ring quickly is to call a cab. Gone are the days when one has just one or two options for a Ring cabbie.

Nowadays, you can choose between a wide range of machines, with the list including beasts like the BMW M5, the Jaguar XJR, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and, of course, the said Affalterbach toy.

As you can imagine, some passengers are better prepared than others and we're here to show you how a lap of the Nordschleife can feel for an unsuspecting shotgun rider.

The official Nurburgring YouTube channel has released a piece of footage showcasing an aficionado's first lap. And the clip didn't land online by accident, as the girl in the passenger seat goes through an emotional roller coaster through the lap.

Actually, as we are being told in the video description, there were a lot of firsts involved: "It's her first lap on the Nordschleife - the toughest racetrack in the world. It's her first lap in the Beast of the Green Hell - the 585 hp Mercedes-AMG GT R. It's her first lap as a co-pilot of the Nürburgring main instructor Andi Gülden - one of the most experienced drivers at the Nürburgring,"

Speaking of the infamous German track, we'll remind you that its production car lap record might fall soon, now that the McLaren Senna has reached the circuit
