I know most dont give a crap about this stuff anymore but its still crazy to me that production cars are now hitting sub 7s.

The rumors were true. The new 911 GT3 RS just ran a bonkers 6:56.4 at the Nurburgring Nordschliefe with factory driver Kevin Estre at the wheel, beating the mighty 918 Spyder. For additional context, that's 24 seconds quicker than the previous GT3 RS and over 16 seconds quicker than the new GT3. That also makes the GT3 RS the third quickest road car to ever lap the Nordschleife, behind just the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and the 911 GT2 RS.
Video is worth watching just to hear the car scream to 9k. Estre was also HAULING and pushing crazy hard :rofl:

You said it's impressive for production cars to go sub 7min, that car did it N/A, that's even more impressive.

I'm not sure if I'm impressed more by the car or the drivers being able to accomplish this. For all the times I've done that track on video games, I screw up all the time. Regular tracks I can learn and master. But the Ring is another level that is complicated and difficult and would be deadly in real life, at least for me.
