Lamborghini reclaims Nürburgring lap record

Lamborghini reclaims Nürburgring lap record
 

Porsche last year September shattered the production car lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with their 911 GT2 RS. Racing driver Lars Kern steered the most powerful road-going 911 around the infamous “Green Hell” in just 6:47.3 minutes.

His performance knocked the Huracán Performante from the top of the leaderboard and in turn upset a lot of people in Sant’Agata Bolognese. Well that anger has now turned to joy as Lamborghini has just stuck it to Porsche with their new Aventador SVJ – a soon-to-be-released monster that packs a whopping 567kW courtesy its 6.5-litre V12 motor.

With Lamborghini factory racing driver Marco Mapelli at the wheel, the Aventador SVJ set a lap time of  6:44.97 minutes – exactly 2.27 seconds faster that the Porsche. So… any bets as to how long this new record stand? – Staff Writer
