Every source I've seen quotes the factory PS/torque numbers and same top speed (never reached on the lap, anyway). As far as I know, there are no performance mods for brakes or suspension.

The equipment must weight close to the driver weight, if not more. So that's not a major concern.

NIN, does the source specifically mention that there are no mods for performance?

Extremely questionable

No modifications to help performance. Maybe a slight advantage by removing driver's weight is offset by the added equipment needed to drive the car.

Until a human gets to beat the time (it was a standing start and the car slowed to a stop at the finish), I guess the time should stay just for the sake of conversation.

EDIT
Someone else did note that the car used wasn't the "facelift" version. It was a regular RS7.

A contraption that moves steering wheel and pedals (mechanical driver) is perfectly fine as far as fastestlaps.com rules :) It's just a different type of payload for the car.

If the robot is better than human - so be it. It's not cheating. We are interested in documenting the limits of what each car can do as far as laptimes, acceleration data etc.

Was the car modified as far as it's performance?
