Watch A Pair Of Porsche 911 GT2 RSs Attacking The Nurburgring

The Lamborghini Aventador SV J might soon spoil its party, but right now, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS remains the world’s fastest globally-homologated production car around the Nurburgring.

Fortunately, a significant percentage of Porsche owners are true driving enthusiasts and more than happy to explore the performance potential of their vehicles.

Since deliveries of the GT2 RS kicked off, owners have flocked to the Nurburgring to put the rear-wheel drive sports car through its paces. Only recently, a pair of cars lapped the famed German circuit in unison, making for a thrilling onboard video. The pair ended up lapping Green Hell from Bridge to Gantry in 7 min 8 seconds and 7 min 12 seconds respectively.

When Porsche had the track all to itself last year, the GT2 RS set a blistering time of 6 min 47.25 seconds, making the ultimate 911 comfortably faster than even the 887 hp Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar.

Power comes from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six that shares many components with the 911 Turbo S. With some Porsche Motorsport magic, grunt has been increased to 690 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, allowing for a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint of 2.8 seconds and a 212 mph (341 km/h) top speed.

What’s particularly fascinating about the GT2 RS is that its design is still relatively restrained. Sure, it has a big wing, but compared to the upcoming Aventador SV J as well as the McLaren P1 LM, it looks relatively low-key.
