You may remember that a little while ago we reported on the Bentley Ice Speed Record. It was then that Bentley used a Continental Supersports Convertible to race across a stretch of ice last month at a mind boggling speed of 205 miles per hour. The newest development in the bid to break this record comes with the aid of Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 studded tires fitted onto an Audi RS6.
Thanks to these new gippy rubber tires and some aerodynamic modifications, the Audi was able to pull off a new record at 206.05 mph. The Nokian team has previously set an Ice Speed Record using its Hakkapeliitta 5 tires, but they had used a Bentley that time.
This time they opted for the Audi and its Quattro all-wheel drive to make good use of their latest generation studded snow tires.
