Living in Dubai, we get to see our fair share of super cars, but when those cars achieve super feats, it gets us at Buzz 360 excited! We love a Porsche or 3 and could go on all day about them, but instead, here is the the official communication from Porsche themselves!

Well done our German chums!

Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the fastest sports car at 6 minutes, 47.3 seconds!

Porsche has set a new record for road legal sports cars on the famous 20.6-kilometre Nürburgring Nordschleife in the 911 GTS RS on September 20. The record time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds was achieved in the presence of a notary, and surpassed even Porsche’s own expectations!

Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars boasted – “This result makes it official: The GT2 RS is not only the most powerful, but also the fastest 911 ever built”.

The fastest, most powerful road-legal 911 celebrated its world premiere at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood in the UK at the end of June. At the heart of this high-performance sports car is a 700 hp (515 kW), flat-six biturbo engine, weighing in at 1,470 kg with a full fuel tank. The lightweight rear-wheel drive two-seater coupé accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, achieving a top speed of 340 km/h with its motorsport-derived drive technology. The new 911 GT2 RS beats its 3.6-litre predecessor by 80 hp (59 kW) and achieves a torque of 750 Nm (an increase of 50 Nm).
