Watch as Porsche smashes Nurgburgring record with the 918

By Nic_low on 12 Sep 2013


Porsche recently showcased its 918 Spyder at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It is all common for auto makers to showcase their latest products at one of the globe's biggest and most awaited car shows, much less for a halo car.

But the people from Stuttgart did more than that. While a team was preparing the final production version of the 918 for its world premiere at Frankfurt, another brought it out for a spin at the Nurburgring. The result was a record-breaking 6:57.

That puts the Porsche right behind the barely legal Radical SR8, overtaking the Dodge Viper ACR (7:12), which held the fastest street going production car record for two years. Now jump to the video to catch a glimpse of the 918 in action.
