It's worth noting that the Porsche 911 GT2 RS continues to hold the Nurburgring production record, despite the weather at the Green Hell currently being ideal for setting new records.
Then again, the said accolade might leave Zuffenhausen's trophy cabinet soon, since there's more than one machine that might be even quicker than the 700 hp Porscha on the Nordschleife.
Examples of such beasts include the 800 hp McLaren Senna - the GTR incarnation of the Woking animal doesn't count since this doesn't come with license plates, while a potential road-legal conversion might still not be eligible for the said record.
As for the almost-ready Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, the Ring rumor mill talks about the V12 special having blitzed the circuit in 6:54.
Sure, that's pretty far from the 911 GT2 RS' 6:47 lap time, but form chat mentions specific weather conditions and traffic when it comes to the said chronograph number, so this could obviously be improved.
Of course, Koenigsegg could always deliver on its Nurburgring return promise the company made back in 2016, when an One:1 crashed while trying to set a new record.
Nevertheless, we could see the Angelholm-based automotive producer fielding the Regera instead of the One:1. And since the gas-electric monster has no less than 1,500 hp, this would make for one hell of a proposal.
