Huracan Performante And 911 GT2 RS Get A Bit Too Close While ‘Ring Racing

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Porsche 911 GT2 RS are two of the fastest road-legal production cars to ever lap Germany’s Nurburgring, so you can imagine that watching them race around the German track is quite an experience.

As the Nordschleife is (most of the days) open to the public, all types of vehicles are frequently seen lapping the circuit. This makes for some rather hairy overtaking, as the 911 GT2 RS and Huracan Performante look to make their way through traffic while going flat out.

The driver of the Lamborghini in this video aggressively hugs the tail of the Porsche throughout much of the lap. It makes for amazing viewing, but following a car that closely is not the smart thing to do, especially with steel crash barriers just feet away – and especially at the ‘Ring, where there’s no room for error whatsoever.

Those do will drop below 7 minutes at the Green Hell

Back in early 2017, Lamborghini stunned the world when it revealed that a Huracan Performante had lapped the Nurburgring in 6 minutes and 52 seconds. This lap was so fast, it sparked a number of conspiracy theories that the Italian marque had somehow doctored the footage of the run.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS eventually took the Huracan’s crown with a best lap of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds. The two are, therefore, very evenly matched, and in this clip, it is only through some of the track’s fastest sections where the Porsche starts to pull slightly ahead.

While this is an entertaining video, we don’t recommend tailgating another car; not at the street, not at the track, and definitely not at the Nurburgring if you ever happen to go there.

    These two guys are clearly very prepared and know every single bump on the track.

    • Vassilis

      Still, not very clever to be so close to each other.
