The supercar Porsche GT2 RS MR set a new record in the Nürburgring Nordic Lake among cars that can be run on public roads. The sports machine was able to overcome the 20.6km road for 6:40 minutes.
Behind the wheel of a car specially modified for Porsche engineers and Manthey-Racing experts for North Arc was Lars Kern. Previously, he set another record in September 2017 with the serial Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
"During the test, we just wanted to reevaluate the potential of the car, it was impressive," said Frank-Steffen Walser, brand sports manager.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS debuted at the Goodwood Speed Festival in Goodwood at the end of June. The crank is equipped with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that uses a greatly enhanced turbocharger and improved cooling system. Combined with a seven-speed robot ZF transmission, the power of the engine is 700 horsepower. Torque 750 Nm.
The rear-wheel drive accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than the 9 second turbo S. The top speed of the new model exceeds 340 km / h.
The Nürburgring Nordic record for tandem cars belongs to another Porsche sports car. In the fall of 2017, the Nick Tandy pilot-driven 911 GT2 RS knocked down for six minutes for 47.3 seconds, about five seconds faster than the previous Lamborghini Huracan Perfomante record holder.
