Days ago I had a Porsche 911 GT2 RS was rolling on the Nürburgring to rhythms, mind-bending, completing the 20,6 kilometers from the old path in something less than 7 minutes. Today the signing of Stuttgart communicates to us that have pulverized the previous record for sports approved for the street with his Porsche 911 GT2 RS, a fact that took place the past 20th of September, that is to say, on Wednesday of last week.
The supercar of the German brand not only managed to lose 7 minutes in the mythical path, but recorded a time of 6 minutes and 47,3 seconds; which ranks him as the car homologated for the street that less time needed to complete a lap in the Green Hell. In the brand displayed quite proud to put his Porsche 911 GT2 RS as the fastest car on the planet in one of the most demanding race tracks in the world.
Nick Tandy, of 32 years, is an official driver of Porsche, and traveled from Texas, where he finished in a race of six hours at the wheel of his Porsche 919 Hybrid, on the model protagonist of these lines. However, it was Lars Kern, a pilot tester of the German company, who scored the best lap time. You all know this circuit, so I can imagine that register a average speed of 184 km/h in the more than 20 kilometers must be a true madness.
Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice-president of Competition and Vehicles GT, declared that: “At the beginning of the development process, we set as a target for the GT2 RS to a lap time below 7 minutes, and 5 seconds. The merit of having beaten by 17.7 seconds, that goal is of our engineers, mechanics and pilots, which have shown a performance team exceptionally solid. The result already makes it official: The GT2 RS is not only the 911 is more powerful, but also the fastest built ever”.
if you did not remember, Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the most prestacional “nueveonce”. Weighs less than 1,500 pounds with the tank full, and your boxer engine of 3.8-liter biturbo develops 700 HP and 750 Nm, energy that is sent only to the rear-wheel drive, passing first through a gearbox PDK 7-speed transmission. 340 km/h maximum speed, 2.7 sec you need to complete the 0 to 100 km/h and this record lap at the Nürburgring makes it clear to us that it is not, nor much less a supercar either.
