Just another day at the Nordschleife GT2 RS sets fastest 911 lap ever

The Porsche Panamera Turbo previously held the record with a 7:38 lap, beating a Giulia QV with a manual gearbox. Porsche recently made a decision to see if they could break the Nürburgring world record for the fastest road going sports vehicle.

Porsche says they did not intend to set a new record with the 911 GT2 RS.

Frank-Steffen Walliser, vice-president of the division Motorsport of Porsche, said he was pleasantly surprised of this turn of the track, whereas the target had been set at 7 minutes and 5 seconds.

With 700 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, the 911 GT2 RS is the fastest and most powerful 911 ever. That's enough to get the auto from 0 - 100km/h in 2.8s before topping out at a ridiculous 340km/h.

Compared to the GT2 RS, this can be considered at the opposite end of the GT Division ferocity, as we're talking about a pack destined for boosting the daily driver aura of the Gen 2 GT3. Officially, this is not a limited production vehicle set to a certain number of units. The average speed on the 12.8 mile (20.6 kilometer) lap was 114.4 miles per hour. Porsche, who lives just a short drive away? The auto is now the fastest production vehicle around the notorious race track with a time of 6:47.03.

The result is now official and it pushes the 918 Spyder down the pecking order.

Here at Wheels HQ, we love Alfa Romeo's sports sedan and its on-road capabilities (it even conquered the Mercedes-AMG C63 and BMW M3 Competition in our comparison earlier this year).
