Fastest production vehicle (with global road homologation) around the Nurburgring. Ever. Period. Clocking in at a mind-blowing 6:57, the 918 Spyder took down the Gumpert Apollo‘s previously record-holding time of 7:11. The only car faster is the Radical SR8 and SR8 LM, but, the street-legality of these two vehicles doesn’t span worldwide, so it’s a wash.
Behind the wheel was none other than porsche test driver and professional racer Mark Lieb, who took the 874-hp Spyder, equipped with the Weissach package ,around the ‘Ring sitting on top of a set of Michel Pilot Sort Cup 2 Tires. Aka, some of the best tires in the biz.
