911 GT3 RS. I don’t know how to start this article with other than JESUS CHRIST ALL MIGHTY WHAT A LAP! I was literally at the edge of my seat at all times just watching it on my laptop.
The driving skills and commitment of Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre are out of this world. Kudos!
Anyway, I’m not going to bother you with pointless details but here are a few key points to note before watching the video:
- The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is 24 seconds faster then the previous car. TWENTY-FOUR!
- After the 918 Spyder and the new GT2 RS, the new GT3 RS is the third production Porsche to lap the Nordschleife in under 7 minutes.
- Porsche development driver Lars Kern shared driving duties with Kévin Estre and together they completed four laps and all of them were below the 7 minute mark.
- The 911 GT3 RS used to complete the laps is a standard model, no modifications have been made to it, and it was fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires which will soon be available to order from Porsche
Official time was 6:56.4 minutes. That’s it. Now watch and enjoy this fabulous lap!
