The Porsche 911 GT2 RS once again broke the record for the fastest mass-produced car at the Nürburgring in Germany with an improvement of 4.747 seconds and a time of 6 minutes and 43.30 seconds at an average speed of 185 km / h. The record was previously held by the Mercedes AMG GT Black Series.
Porsche driver Lars Kern was tasked with breaking the record.
The highlight of this record-breaker is the use of the Manthey Racing High Performance Kit, which makes changes to the chassis, aerodynamics and brakes. This kit is designed and developed specifically for this model.
This Porsche is equipped with Weissach Package magnesium rims that reduce weight by about 11.4 kg.
The Manthey Racing kit includes a larger flap and spoiler at the front, carbon on the body, a brand new rear spoiler and a reinforced diffuser.
As a result of these changes, the downward force of the front axle has increased from 49 kg to 70 kg at a maximum speed of 200 km / h, and this has also increased from 93 kg to 200 kg in the rear axle.
In the braking section, racing pads with steel liner liners have been used to reduce the working pressure during braking.
The suspension has also been modified to have 3 different settings on the front axle and 4 settings on the rear axle to have the best possible performance on different tracks.
Manthey Racing has had a lot of success with Porsche products, the latest of which is winning the 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
Porsche sells the kit throughout Europe with Manthey Racing.
Finally, it remains to be seen what Mercedes-Benz will respond to this record-breaking event. Mercedes has set a record for the fall season and is expected to be able to extend its time in this hot season if it reappears on the track.
Of course, Mercedes is finalizing its supercar, the Mercedes AMG One, and it is expected that Mercedes will break the Porsche record again with this product.
