Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo Nurburgring Fastest Record Lap

The Porsche 919 Evo Just Obliterated the Nurburgring Record With a 5:19.55 Lap Time

That's 51.58 seconds faster than Bellof's time, which is almost hard to believe. Onboard footage from Bernhard's lap, which you can see below, doesn't even look like real-life, but it is.

Unlike Bellof's 1983 record, which was set during qualifying for the Nürburgring 1000km, this record saw Porsche rent out the track just for itself with the company using a car not homologated for any race series. The 919 Evo is the same car that beat Lewis Hamilton's 2017 pole at Spa Francorchamps earlier this year. It's basically built to set lap records like this. To send off its three-time Le Mans-winning 919 after it was retired from sports-car racing, Porsche threw out the LMP1 rulebook and made a high-downforce, high-horsepower monster.
