Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 hits the Nürburgring with Sabine Schmitz [video]

The Nürburgring has become the de facto place to promote high-performance vehicles, but it's still a tad surprising to see the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 on Germany's famous racetrack.

Oddness aside, the clip shows Sabine Schmitz piloting the 5,150 lb (2,336 kg) SUV around the Nordschleife in 8:49.487. That's not exactly stellar, but it beats the time posted by a supercharged Range Rover Sport.

As we have previously reported, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 has a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine with 470 hp (351 kW / 477 PS) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. It enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
