See The 1,322 Horsepower Koenigsegg One:1 Gunning For The Nurburgring Lap Record

Lap Record

Porsche is about to be very disappointed.

The war of the small organic and independent supercar makers versus the large establishment is about to get a whole lot more interesting. A few years ago, the Porsche 918 Spyder smashed the Nurburgring lap record with a blistering time of 6 minutes and 57 seconds. However, Koenigsegg thinks it can do better. It had been attempting to set a new lap record before the Ring got its speed limits, but now those are gone, the Swedish team is out running practice laps again to get ready for a record run.

The complexity of the track means that a driver that knows the Ring well must practice with the car before a record can be set. Watch below as the driver gives it a shot.
