Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo breaks Nürburgring lap record

The Nübrugring Nordschleife's previous all-time lap record, a time of 6 minutes and 11.13 seconds, stood for over 35 years-35 years and 31 days, to be exact.

Bernhard took on the challenge of beating the time, set by his childhood hero in the Porsche 919 Evo and after a quick warm up lap returned to the pits to get ready for a proper run.

Isn't it lovely ? Yesterday's bash witnessed a wide array of tinsel town stars all decked up for Akash's pre-engagement party . The couple made a decision to get married in March and a grand party was hosted by the Ambanis on the occasion.

As previously reported by Wheels, the 919 Evo's job is not yet done, with more lap records in Porsche's sights. The folks over at Bridge to Gantry have been following Porsche's progress with the unrestricted version of its race auto in the company's quest to establish a new record for the fastest vehicle around the 'Ring.

Porsche reportedly broke Bellof's time earlier in the day with a 5:24.375 run from Bernhard, before setting the ultimate lap in a subsequent run. The hybrid system captures energy from the front brakes and the exhaust system, storing it in a lithium-ion battery. This made it an altogether different proposition to the open expanses and far-reaching run-off areas of Spa Francorchamps, where the 919 Evo also boasts the outright lap record. A much larger rear wing with an active drag reduction system - like an F1 car's - give the up-specced Porsche more downforce in the corners and better top speed on the straights.
