Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991.2) Nürburgring Record Onboard

On April 16 the Porsche 911 GT3 RS set another benchmark for road-approved sports cars at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit in Germany: Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre set a lap time in 6:56.4 minutes with the 520-hp GT3 RS. The Frenchman’s lap time was 24 seconds faster than the best time achieved with the previous GT3 RS model. […]

Regardless of its real-world importance or relevance, kudos to Porsche for continuing to blow minds with each generation and subsequent iteration of its sportscars.

Koenigsegg One:1 Resets the Spa Francorchamps Lap Record

Watch the lunacy that is Koenigsegg’s One:1 hypercar thumping in a blisteringly quick and rather dirty lap of Spa.

Quick because it stopped the clocks at 2:32.14, besting the previous 2:38 road-legal production car record as well as Koenigsegg’s own previous 2:33.16 best in the same car just a month earlier.

Dirty because it looks as though this lap was set at an open track day, with lots of other slow moving objects to negotiate. And the small matter of that large stone chip right in the middle of the screen. Plus the video’s description mentions the main in-car camera was not working, hence the low-res backup footage we see here.

Re-run soon?
