Porsche 918 - Record Nurburgring 6.57 - ONBOARD FULL RACE - THE BEST
Porsche 918 - Record Nurburgring 6.57 - As the first vehicle to boast
global road homologation, the Porsche 918 Spyder* has conquered the
20.6-kilometre lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven
minutes. Achieving a time of exactly six minutes and 57 seconds, the super
sportscar equipped with a hybrid drive shaved 14 seconds off the previous
record. Wolfgang Hatz, member of the Porsche AG Board of Management in
charge of Research and Development, had the following to say: "We promised
a great deal with the 918 Spyder, namely to redefine driving pleasure,
efficiency and performance. We have kept our word."
As is always the case with Porsche, the 918 Spyder is also leading the way
for future generations as the latest in the line of super sportscars. It is
currently making its global début at the International Motor Show (IAA).
With its unique spread, the model blends maximum driving dynamics with
minimal fuel consumption. By taking the Nürburgring record, the sportscar
is demonstrating the enormous potential that lies in Porsche's pioneering
plug-in hybrid concept, and is underpinning the leading role the company
enjoys when it comes to developing sporty hybrid vehicles. "The radical
hybridisation of the 918 Spyder from the very outset is what made this lap
record possible" says Dr. Frank Walliser, head of the 918 Spyder project.
"The lap time on the Nordschleife is and remains the toughest measure of a
super sportscar. Posting a time of 6.57 minutes, we achieved a result of
which everyone in the development team and at Porsche as a whole is rightly
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.

BMW M3 GTS and Porsche GT3 RS Nurburgring 7min55 BTG
Fun lap during a trackday with my M3 GTS and a orange Porsche GT3RS.
The car is a bit wobbly at this videoclip, meanwhile we improved the
setting of the car (except brake pads still OEM). At this point it was
still out of shape. It would also be nice if there would fit more tyres
(Trofeo, Cup of slicks perhaps), but unfortunately only Pirelli and Dunlop
make tyres for this car....
Her first time in a Porsche 911 GT3!
Inspired by the Porsche 997.2 GT3 introduction video, I wanted to try and
create something similar using my GT3. The person in the video is a great
friend; she's such a great sport.
This was her first time as a passenger in my car on the track. I think the
video says more than anything I can write here. Hope you enjoy it :)
BMW ring Taxi vs Porsche 911 on the Nurburgring (The Nordschleife!)
This is the best race track in the world. The Nordschleife!
This is the one were every bike on the track gets in the way of the cars,
but to be fair it isn't a race, and the bikers are only there sight seeing
not to ride fast. This video is from 2007, BMW M5 vs Porsche 911 (the
passenger is a biker and has just been riding round the track, now he goes
in the Porsche, several times he says how 'incredible' the car is he even
points out how much the bikes slow the cars down drastically especially
after the bus, listen to him, the bikers think they are going fast!)
People can make excuses for the riders in this video, which is fine, but
at the end of the day it's a video about cars not bikes, and for those
saying it isn't Sabine, IT IS Sabine driving the BMW! it is the old M5 with
I meant, it's easier to ride a bike than drive a car, to learn at least.
Not to take anything away from the bike riders, it takes skill, lots of
skill and balls of course, or stupidity, which ever you like. No I wont
ride a bike at these kinds of speeds, I like being alive, yes I will drive
a car at these speeds, it feels safe, even if it isn't!
Pagani Zonda R - Nurburgring lap
Pagani - Pirelli Tyre - Assuring new technologies and materials are fit for
production means also putting the vehicle's components under severe
stresses, exceeding those normally encountered in every day road driving.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most demanding track in the world, for
man and machine, an ordeal that each Pagani has to pass, only one of many
in the entire development phase.
The Zonda R serves as the ultimate test bench, a car able to reach
acceleration figures and speeds that are not possible with a road car.
This is further underlined by a laptime of 6:47,5 min for the 20,832 km
Nordschleife. Driver: Marc Basseng
