2019 Porsche Taycan Prototype - Nürburgring Nordschleife - 7:42.34 Four-Door EV Record Lap - Lars Kern - Onboard

New Porsche Taycan sets a record at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife


Porsche sets new standards for four-door, all-electric sports cars on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Consequently, test driver Lars Kern conquered the legendary track, famously known as the Green Hell, in seven minutes and 42 seconds. The lap time was set over the 20.6-kilometre course that’s usually used for record attempts. During the attempt, Lars Kern drove a pre-series Taycan.

“The Taycan is also suitable for race tracks and it convincingly proved that here on the world’s most challenging circuit,” Kern explains. “Again and again, I am impressed at how stable the all-electric sports car handles in high-speed sections, such as Kesselchen, and how neutrally it accelerates from tight sections, such as Adenauer Forst.”

Nürburgring Nordschleife: The Ring

Construído pela Mercedes-Benz em 1927, o Nürburgring Nordschleife foi o circuito de testes da marca. Mais tarde, tornou-se o autódromo do Grande Prêmio da Alemanha. Durante várias décadas, foi o maior desafio vivenciado por grandes pilotos, como Rudolf Caracciola, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, James Hunt, Niki Lauda e Jackie Stewart, que deu ao circuito o apelido "Green Hell".

A Polyphony Digital, produtora da série Gran Turismo, produziu este documentário, entitulado "The Ring", um tributo ao mais longo e desafiador circuito do mundo. Hoje, as 24 Horas de Nürburgring são o maior evento automobilístico realizado na pista de 25 quilômetros de extensão.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ - Nürburgring Nordschleife - 7:49.369 - Markus Hofbauer - Onboard

Mercedes-AMG with new, notarised lap record: The GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ is the fastest series production SUV on the North Loop of Nürburgring

Affalterbach/Adenau. With an officially measured and notarised lap time of 7.49.369 minutes, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ (combined fuel consumption: 11.9 l/100 km, combined CO2emissions: 270 g/km) is the fastest series production SUV in the world on the North Loop of Nürburgring. In autumnal track conditions, AMG development engineer Markus Hofbauer at the wheel of the series-production eight-cylinder model bettered the previous record time by a competitor at the first attempt.

The technical concept of the mid-size high-performance SUV provides the ideal basis for this outstanding lap time: apart from the powerful, high-torque 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine, this includes the air suspension system with adaptively variable damping, the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution, the rear axle locking differential and the high-performance ceramic composite braking system. The GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ is not only the top performer, but also fully day-to-day suitable: it has plenty of space for passengers and luggage, a variable interior, extensive safety features and a high level of long-distance comfort.

As is usual at Mercedes-AMG, the record lap was measured precisely by the independent experts of "wige SOLUTIONS". An independent notary also confirmed the lap time and that the vehicle's condition was in accordance with regulations.
