This is very impressive for Turbo. Faster than 918 and Perfomante on the regular summer tires.
Only GT2RS, GT3RS and McLarens are ahead (factory laptimes don't counts).

The Performante lap was with a shit driver who lost control and almost crashed into the trees so don't read too much into it. When the TurboS does 6:52 at the Nurb then i'll praise it lol

He redlined for one whole second at just one of his missshifts

I know, it wasn't the best effort for Perfomante, with pro driver it could get deep under 2:40. But we can say the same about Turbo. May be the Turbo is less tricky at the limit, and difference in laptimes between pro drivers and journalists won't be so big as for Performante. I don't know.
But still, Perfomante has much superior tires, and overall is stiffer and more track oriented car. The fact, that Turbo S on P Zero is so close to Performante on Trofeo R on most tracks, and even faster here, says a lot.
I suppose on the same tires Lambo would be slower.
