Porsche has now reclaimed the Nürburgring lap record with the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR which set a new record time of 6:40:30, the previous record of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ was 6:44:97.
The 911 GT2 RS was equipped with a new Manthey Racing performance kit, which helped the car achieve the new record.
“We kept our eye on the weather all day and thought hard about whether such a drive was possible. We would not have taken any risks if it was raining or if the track was slightly damp,” says Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Head of Motorsport and GT Cars. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS was equipped with the new performance kit from Manthey-Racing, supplemented by an overall vehicle setup tailored to the circuit characteristics of the Nürburgring-Norschleife. “In this test drive, we simply wanted to assess the potential of the vehicle once more. The result is quite impressive. It really is a fabulous time. This shows again very clearly the exciting possibilities of this sports car.”
