Porsche 911 GT3 RS laps Nurburgring in 6:56.4

Porsche 911 GT3 RS laps Nurburgring in 6:56.4”

Which means we can expect owners of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS to be quoting lap times to anyone who'll listen.

Powered by a race-bred 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine with 383kW and a 9000rpm redline, the GT3 RS can accelerate to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, before topping out at 312km/h.

Making a 911 GT3 RS look slow is no easy task, but Porsche's road-to-racetrack weapon has just been shamed around the infamous Nurburgring - albeit by a newer version of itself.

The 2018 GT3 RS is now placed third on the production auto laptime leader board, just ahead of the 918 Spyder's 6:57.0, and is a full 24 seconds faster than the previous GT3 RS's best Nurburgring laptime. And it demolishes the 6:57.0 time set by the $1.5 million (est) 918 Spyder.

So set aside a bit of time this fine Friday morning and watch an incredible sportscar driver at work - it really is worth ever second.

"No other Porsche model gets as close to racing as the new GT3 RS".

Estre started his record lap at 11:40 AM in ideal driving conditions, with a 14-degree Celsius ambient and 18-degree Celsius track temperature. "The sound is a dream and the torque is massive". The auto wore Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres, which are completely road legal in Europe and the U.S., measuring 265/35 on the front and 325/30 on the rear. After some practice laps, each made four timed laps that were all under seven minutes and just tenths of a second apart. "This proves not only the outstanding power of the GT3 RS, but also its extraordinary driveability at the limit". For a driver, each of the car's thousands of parts have to feel like one - that's an unbeatable strength of the GT3 RS.

The auto was driven around the circuit by Kévin Estre and Lars kern. Now many will casually-on-purpose mention-boast that their sports vehicle is one of the fastest flying machines around the infamous Nürburgring race track, in Germany.

Is the 911 GT3 RS the ultimate track-attack Porsche?
