Porsche 918 Spyder: Fastest Production Car Around Nurburgring [w/video]

Jeff Perez

Fastest production vehicle (with global road homologation) around the Nurburgring. Ever. Period. Clocking in at a mind-blowing 6:57, the 918 Spyder took down the Gumpert Apollo‘s previously record-holding time of 7:11. The only car faster is the Radical SR8 and SR8 LM, but, the street-legality of these two vehicles doesn’t span worldwide, so it’s a wash.

Behind the wheel was none other than porsche test driver and professional racer Mark Lieb, who took the 874-hp Spyder, equipped with the Weissach package ,around the ‘Ring sitting on top of a set of Michel Pilot Sort Cup 2 Tires. Aka, some of the best tires in the biz.

This impressive lap time is undoubtedly sure to get Ferrari and McLaren even more anxious when it comes to testing the P1 and LaFerrari. But for now, the 918 Spyder is free to soak up the acclaim.
