The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is quick. Extremely quick. In fact, it’s the quickest production car to ever lap the Nurburgring. But the good news for Porsche fans is, the German automaker has figured out a way to make the 911 GT2 RS quick enough to beat the SVJ.
Today, Porsche announced that it set a new Nurburgring lap record with a 911 GT2 RS. Except it wasn’t stock. The record was set by a car that had been modified by Porsche motorsports partner Manthey-Racing to lay down a lap time of 6:40.3—nearly 5 seconds quicker than the Aventador SVJ. Since the specially modified car, called the 911 GT2 RS MR, is still street-legal, Porsche is touting it as the quickest road-legal car to lap the ‘Ring.
