NEW Porsche 918 Spyder onboard Nurburgring 6' 57" record lap
The Porsche 918 Spyder supercar has conquered the 20.6-kilometre record lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes. Achieving a best time of exactly 6 minutes and 57 seconds, the super sportscar equipped with a hybrid drive shaved 14 seconds off the previous record. The record, which was previously held for four years, was even broken during the first attempt in the test drive on the morning of September 4. All three drivers -- Former European Rally Champion Walter Röhrl, Porsche test driver Timo Kluck and Porsche factory driver Marc Lieb -- were quicker than the existing record with each lap driving the two 918 Spyder models used, and posted lap times of less than seven minutes on numerous occasions. Ultimately, it was Marc Lieb who posted the absolute best time of 6.57 minutes, driving at an average speed of 179.5 km/h, as measured by Wige Solutions. Marcus Schurig, editor-in-chief of sportscar magazine "sport auto", was on hand as an objective observer of the record-breaking runs. The two sportscars, which deliver an output of 887 bhp (652 kW), were equipped with the optional "Weissach package" to increase the driving dynamics, and lead out on the standard Michelin tyres developed specifically for the 918 Spyder.
