The Porsche GT2 RS MR supercar has set a new record for the Nürburgring Nordic arc among cars that can be run on public roads. The sports machine overcomes the route of 20.6 km for 6: 40.3 minutes.
Behind the wheel of the car, Porsche engineers and Manthey-Racing experts specially adapted for the North Arc, are Lars Kern. Previously, he set another record in September 2017 with the Porsche 911 GT2 RS series.
"During testing, we just want to reevaluate the potential of the car, which is impressive," said Frank-Steffen Walser, head of the sports division of the brand.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS debuted at the end of June at the Goodwood Speed Festival at Goodwood. The crank is equipped with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that has been significantly improved using an improved turbocharger and better cooling system. The engine's strength, combined with the seven-speed robotic ZF transmission, is 700 hp. and 750 Nm of torque.
The rear wheel drive accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than the 911 Turbo S. The maximum speed of the new model exceeds 340 km / hr.
The Nordic Arc Nürburgring record for series cars also belongs to other Porsche sports cars. In the fall of 2017, the 911 GT2 RS, which was driven by pilot Nick Tandy, made laps for 6 minutes 47.3 seconds, almost five seconds faster than previous Lamborghini Huracan Perfomante record holders.
