Sub 7 minute Nurburgring laptime for the Porsche 918 Spyder? Yep. Record 6 minute 57 second Nurburgring laptime video
Wow. Quite simply, wow. Talk about raising the bar quite a bit. Porsche originally stated the 918 Spyder Nurburgring laptime was a very impressive 7 minutes and 14 seconds
putting the hybrid sports car ahead of the Lexus LF-A, Carrera GT, 997 GT2-RS, etc. Porsche raised the bar to breaking the 7 minute barrier with an absolutely stunning 6 minute and 57 second laptime. The 918 Spyder setting the laptime had the Weissach package and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Porsche factory race car driver Marc Lieb piloted the car for the record setting laptime which annihilates the next closest cars the Gumpert Apollo Sport with its 7:11.57 and the Viper ACR's 7:12.13. Only the non-street legal roadcourse special Radical SR8 LM has posted a quicker laptime with a 6:48.
Jaw dropping performance from the 918 Spyder as Porsche shows the hybrid car is the real deal.
