Mercedes AMG GT R Sets New 'Ring Lap Record* - CATEGORY News metro: TITLE

Just in case you needed reassurance that the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a very fast car, AutoBild took it to the Sachsenring, where it has set a new lap record.

By going from start to finish in just 1:26.61, the ‘Widow Maker‘ has proved itself faster than the Porsche 918 Spyder, which was the previous record-holder with 1:26.77.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS left the Mercedes-AMG GT R, McLaren 720S, Lamborghini Huracan Performante, Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and others in the dust, and came about 4 seconds to the Aprilia RS-GP bike’s record, and more than 5 seconds behind Marc Marquez and his Honda RC213V.

But these numbers would be for nothing unless seeing just how fast the supercar actually was on the 3.7km (2.3mi) long German track, so the publication released a video that shows the entire run.

Watch: New Porsche 911 GT2 RS Destroyed Huracan Performante’s Ring Lap With A Record 6:47.3

Now, before moving on to the film, let’s remind ourselves that the Porsche 911 GT2 RS still holds the Nurburgring lap record for the fastest rear-wheel drive production car. It went around the track last fall in just 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds, destroying the Lamborghini Huracan Performante’s time of 6:52.01.

Unveiled almost a year ago, the 911 GT2 RS is Porsche’s most powerful street-legal 911 ever. It’s powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine that delivers 700PS (690hp / 515kW) and 750Nm (553lb-ft) of torque. Naught to 100km/h (0-62mph) takes only 2.9sec, and top speed stands at 340km/h (212mph).
