New Mercedes-AMG GT R owns the one ring to rule them all - the Nurburgring.

The most track focused road car from the German car maker has set a blistering time of 7:10.9 around the 21km Nurburgring track in Germany.

This is the fastest time ever set by a rear-wheel drive road car. The only road cars to post a quicker time are the Porsche 918 Spyder, Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce and Nissan GT-R Nismo.

The time was set by German automotive magazine Sport Auto.

The Mercedes-AMG was revealed at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed and features unique active aerodynamics, rear-wheel steering, modified suspension and lightweight forged wheels shod with cup tyres over the regular GT.

Its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine has had its output raised to 430kW and 700Nm - compared to 375kW and 650Nm found in the GT S - and is now capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 3.6 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz has slated the GT R to hit local showrooms sometime in 2017 with pricing expected to sit about $400,000. It is expected to do battle with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS for the mantle of the fiercest road going racers.
