Porsche 911 GT3 RS runs the Nurburgring in 7m30s

he new 2010 Porsche 997 GT3 RS was tested last week using Nordschleife time-attacks and it clocked in at 7min33sec per lap, seven seconds faster than the GT3. A Porsche test driver who remains unnamed donned a stopwatch, a crash hat, an RS, and a lot of guts, and went into light traffic. Data from earlier laps indicate that the theoretical ‘best lap’ is 7m30s. It can still be recalled that the Nissan GT-R recorded a laptime of 7m27.56s. More impressive lap records were performed by the Gumpert Apollo (7m11.57s) and Radical SR8LM (6m48s), which was reported just two months ago.
