Porsche broke the record for production cars at the Nurburgring using the 911 GT2 RS equipped with the Manthey high-performance package. The previous record was held by the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series with a time of 6: 48.047.
The new record is 6: 43,300, and interestingly, the 918 Spyder – the most powerful model Porsche has ever made, set a time of 6:57.
Behind the wheel of the GT2 RS was Porsche driver from the development department Lars Kern. The car was equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, which are intended for use on tracks, but are also legal for use on ordinary roads.
Manthey Racing is a sports team owned by Porsche that uses Porsche GTE and GT3 racing models in competitions, but they have now made a package for the GT2 RS. The power of the factory moel of 700 hp has not been changed, but changes have been made to the chassis and aerodynamics to make the car even faster in curves on the track.
Racing brakes and magnesium wheels are also installed, which take off 11.4 kg of weight. Lars Kern says that the effect of these modifications is exceptional and that the feeling behind the wheel is like in a race car, especially in faster corners.
As Manthey is a Porsche partner, this package can be ordered at official Porsche centers for the standard GT2 RS.
