Porsche 918 Spyder has the potential to be even quicker on the 'Ring [video]

According to Marc Lieb

It seems the Porsche 918 Spyder can lap the Nürburgring even faster than the already record-breaking 6:57.

It was Marc Lieb who proved the Porsche 918 Spyder has what it takes to become the quickest (worldwide legal) car to lap the Nürburgring, achieving an impressive time of 6 minutes and 57 seconds which makes it the first car to do a sub-seven time.

Marc Lieb, a four-time Nürburgring 24-hour race winner, hinted in an interview to Drive TV there's room for improvement to lower the time even further. There are some reports indicating a 918 Spyder fitted with racing slicks lapped the famous German circuit in just 6 minutes and 48 seconds.

We are now waiting for a response from McLaren and Ferrari with their latest supercars to see which one is the king around the 'Ring.

What really amazes me here is that Porsche has created a car that blows away all others around the Nurburgring...and yet it uses less fuel than a Prius - and that is not a false claim. In the real world of city driving and some highway, in most situations, you will get amazing fuel economy. I still think people are not fully appreciative of this: Porsche has just done something earth shattering.
