Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo demolishes Nurburgring record ? and the video is bonkers - Autoblog
This morning the Porsche 919 Evo broke the outright lap record at the Nordschleife setting at time of 5min 19.546sec with Timo Bernhard at the wheel, smashing the previous record of 6min 11sec set by Stefan Bellof in 1983.
Until now, no one has been able to beat the time set by the Porsche 956 C more than 35 years ago. Back then the track was longer by 200 meters, nonetheless, the new time will likely remain unbeaten for a long time to come.
The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo is based on the already successful, Le Mans winning Porsche 919 Hybrid, but without the numerous restrictions of the FIA, allowing Porsche to show full potential of their quickest racecar of all time. For some context, this lap was about 90 seconds faster than the production-car record holder, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The 991.2 GT3 RS comes a close third with a time of 6:56.4 minutes. With this achievement, the two-times Le Mans victor and reigning World Endurance Champion has beaten the lap record on the revered 20.8 kilometre long German race circuit that stood for 35 years. With a 2.0-liter turbocharged V4 engine paired to a hybrid system, the 919 Hybrid Evo delivers a total output of 1,160 hp. The hybrid system captures energy from the front brakes and the exhaust system, storing it in a lithium-ion battery.
