Porsche GT2 RS hits the Nurburgring - video

It's not quite flat chat, but it's also far from slow

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the most powerful 911 ever built, and carries a pretty serious reputation as a 'widow maker' if you don't treat it with enough respect.

It also carries the production car record for the legendary North Loop, having lapped the track in 6:57.3 late last year.

As a new owner living in Germany, the first thing we'd do is head to the Nurburgring and see if the reputation is accurate. Turns out, an owner and his GoPro decided to exactly that.

It's not quite a maximum attack lap, and there's a lot of tourist traffic around, but even a softly-softly approach sees the GT2 RS chewing slower cars up and spitting them out with no remorse.

Outputs are rated at 515kW and 750Nm, sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Check out the video above, and let us know whether you'd rather the GT2 RS pictured here, or the GT3 RS we featured earlier this year.
