The Porsche Supercar GT2 RS MR has set a new record for the Nürburgring Nordic arc between cars that can be run on public roads. The sports machine was able to overcome the 20.6 km route for 6: 40.3 minutes.
Behind the wheel of the car, which engineers Porsche specialist racing experts are specially adapted for the North Rainbow, was Lars Foundation. Earlier, he set an additional record in September 2017 with the Porsche 911 GT2 RS serial.
"During the test, we wanted only to re-evaluate the potential of the car, which was impressive," said Frank Stephen Walser, head of the brand's sports division.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS debuted at the end of June at the Goodwood Speed Festival in Goodwood. The crankshaft is equipped with a six-liter six-cylinder engine that uses enhanced turbo actuators and an improved cooling system. The power of the engine, combined with seven-speed ZB robotic transmission, is 700 hp. And a torque of 750 nm.
The rear wheel drive accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than 911 Turbo S. The maximum speed of the new model exceeds 340 km / h.
The Nürburgring Nord circus record for serial cars also belongs to Porsche's other sports car. In the fall of 2017, the 911 GT2 RS, driven by pilot Nick Tandy, made the knees for 6 minutes 47.3 seconds, almost five seconds faster than the previous Lamborghini Huracan Perfomante Peak.
