You only need to check out the video below for verification; the GT2 RS is unbelievably quick. The way is carves around corners like a jet sprint boat, changing directions and then soaring down straights like it’s in a vacuum. What a machine.
Both cars went under 6 minutes and 50 seconds during the five laps that each was driven on the Nordschleife, but it was Lars Kern who ultimately went into the record books to set the fastest time. This is a insane lap, the speeds recorded absolutely barmy and the composure shown by both vehicle driver truly extraordinary.
“It’s not just the record time achieved by the GT2 RS that demonstrates the vehicle’s class, but also its consistent performance in every lap,” said Andreas Preuninger, head of GT cars at Porsche. “We’re particularly proud of the fact that this was achieved with two different vehicles and two different drivers, as this underlines the GT2 RS’s ability to reproduce this record result over and over again”.
Driving duties for this record attempt were taken on by Lars Kern, although Nick Tandy was involved too; indeed both clocked up more than one lap below 6:50, with the record lap requiring an average speed of 184.11km/h.
