27 Modified Porsche GT2 RS beats Nürburgring record

Cover for Modified Porsche GT2 RS beats Nürburgring record

Porsche 911 GT2 RS 991, modified by World Endurance Championship team and Porsche tuning house Manthey Racing, has lapped the Nürburgring in 6 minutes and 40.33 seconds.

The lightly modified RS managed to beat Lamborghini Aventador SVJ by 4.67 seconds, which, according to Porsche, makes it the "fastest street-legal car around Nürburgring Nordschleife".

The Manthey Racing upgrade package, which is available to any Porsche 911 GT2 RS owner in Europe, offers improvements in aerodynamics and chassis, leaving the Porsche engine in factory tune.

The 991 generation of Porsche 911 appears to be in it's late cycle of development and soon will be replaced with the brand new 992 platform. This, somewhat less relevant "modified-street" class record is probably be the last news for the 991.

End of story!
I'm sure this car with the chassis settings will not work on the autobahn for example (negative camber / tyre abrasion)

Modified yes, but modified in the same way a SVJ would be to do a lap record. Lambo isn't offering a Nurburgring special alignment and set up for the SVJ, but Manthey Racing, a Porsche owned company is doing so for the GT2 RS and other Porsches too. This is done with no power upgrades, just fine tuning

Nurburgring lap records has never been transparent enough to be a real yardstick for performance, but at least Porsche is being clear about what they're doing.
