Following on from today’s brochure leaks, Porsche has taken to its Facebook page to announce the fact that its 918 Spyder has cracked the fabled Nürburgring Nordschleife in just 7 minutes, 14 seconds. That puts it fifth on the list of the fastest production street-legal cars around there, dislodging the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package.
A Radical SR8 LM currently holds the title with 6:48. Then follows the Radical SR8 (6:55), Gumpert Apollo Sport (7:11.57) and Dodge’s Viper ACR (7:12:13). Remember, this is a 574 kW (770 hp) car that is also capable of consuming three litres of fuel every 100 kilometres.
