Both cars were with their stock tires. Itís a fair test, because most buyers will just stick with their stock tires.

What was the lap time? The AMG GLC63s took the record away from the Stelvio QV earlier this year with a time of 7:49.37.

WOW! That's an impressive lap by the GLC63S... to think our X3MC runs as quickly on the track (or a 1/2 second faster)... truly awesome!!

I am not one of the "Our" since I drive a GLC63s

It is just amazing that we are in a day and age of such fast cars and the SUVS/SAVS are even more impressive. Not only are they fast in a straight line, they will outrun a lot of true sports cars on the track.

The new motor you guys are running is fantastic.

SUV on a race track, is like a someone on a diet choosing a low calorie donut. 🍩

If you want to do that, make the right choices...

I was wonder how fast it would take to kill a set of tires.

Clearly not very long.

Besides the GLC63S and possibly the X3MC is faster at Nurburgring than both of your "sports cars"...

Agreed everyone knows pilot sports 4s are so much better on the race track, i test drove the Stelvio QV and immediately bought it, words can not describe the driving experience it brings to the table, and i love and own German cars (991 and x5 5.0 sport) but this alfa is insane.

I was at that drag night. The track prep was horrible. I saw his best run was a 7.8. He was a cool guy who owned the X3M
