    Default 919 Hybrid Evo has just taken 52 seconds out of Bellof’s 35-year-old lap time

    The acceleration is freaking insane its like you playing a video game

    This is big. Porsche has not only broken the Nürburgring all-time lap record, but smashed it into pieces.

    Porsche already held the record, courtesy of Stefan Bellof’s scintillating 6m11.13s qualifying lap from a sports car race in 1983.

    But its 919 Hybrid Evo has just taken 52 seconds out of Bellof’s 35-year-old lap time, setting a scarcely believable 5m19.546. Behind the wheel was Timo Bernhard, a Le Mans winner with Porsche and a multiple winner at the ‘Ring. He was a natural choice for such a committed record attempt.

    Watched it earlier. Insane lap.
    The acceleration is crazy, as is a 369kph top speed considering how much downforce that thing has.

    Amazing how much power they can get out of a 4 cylinder engine.

    The braking, acceleration and handling are all amazing. Only one word after watching that: awesome.
    Only when the blood runs and the shackles restrain, will the sheep then awake. When all is lost.

    Jassis that is intense and I’ve spent many virtual hours around that track and can’t see half of the corners coming at that pace.

    I’m sure sitting in a centre mounted seat makes things a lot more simple both in approach and physical movement in the chair.
