    The Porsche 911 GT2 RS has posted a lap time of 6:40:30 at the Nürburgring, Porsche claims, beating the previous road-legal lap record of 6:44:97 set by the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ earlier this year.

    The GT2 RS’s chassis and suspension were modified specifically for the 12.9-mile Nordschleife circuit by a team of engineers from Porsche and the US-based Manthey-Racing, which fields 911 RSR race variants in the World Endurance Championship and manufactures aftermarket parts for Porsches in the US.
