Volkswagen ID R to chase Nurburgring EV record

Volkswagen has turned its energy from Pikes Peak to the Nurburgring, announcing plans to topple the electric lap record currently owned by the NIO EP9. Where it chased the outright record up Pikes Peak, the record within Volkswagen's sights is purely related to electric vehicles. Apparently there's no way the ID R could come close to toppling the 5:19...

Toyota Supra to lap Nurburgring in around 7:40

If you hadn't gathered by now, the new Toyota Supra is kind of a big deal. But amid the storm of details about transmissions, engines and design, one figure has been conspicuously absent: a lap time at the Nurburgring. Turns out, there's a very good reason for that. Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer on the project, told Road&Track the hotly-anticipated A90 Supra is yet to lap the Green Hell...

2019 Audi S6 spied again

The upcoming 2019 Audi S6 has been spied again, this time around the iconic Nurburgring race track in Germany. Spotted with next to no camouflage, the blue sedan in the images gives us a fairly clear indication of what to expect from the mid-tier performance A6, which is likely to be revealed early next year...

2018 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S sets Nurburgring lap record for SUVs

The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S has set a new SUV lap record at the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany, beating its rival, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, by a scant three seconds. It took just 7 minutes and 49 seconds for the GLC 63 S to complete the lap, putting it alongside cars like the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640 (7:47), the 997...

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series spied at the 'Ring

A prototype believed to be a more extreme 'Black Series' version of the Mercedes-AMG GT has been spied again, this time during performance testing at the Nurburgring race track in Germany. Compared to the prototype snapped in September, this vehicle is sporting a more aggressive aerodynamic setup, including a more pronounced front bumper and splitter with incorporated flics, and a larger rear wing...

Lexus RC F 'GT' spied at the Nurburgring

A prototype believed to be the upcoming Lexus RC F GT has been spied again, this time during performance testing at the Nurburgring race track in Germany. Believed to be the production version of the 2015 RC F GT concept which attempted the Pikes Peak Hillclimb of the same year, this vehicle wears various body add-ons inspired by the motorsport-themed concept...

2019 Alpina XD7 spied

Photographers have snapped images of what is believed to be the upcoming Alpina XD7 at the Nurburgring in Germany, giving us an early preview of the tuning arm's take on BMW's largest SUV model. While little distinguishes this camouflaged prototype from the recently-revealed BMW X7, trainspotters will notice the (normally fake) intakes on each side of the front bumper are open, feeding air into a pair of intercoolers...

2019 Mercedes-AMG GLC63 spied at the Nurburgring

Photographers have captured images of the facelifted Mercedes-AMG GLC63 wagon at the famed Nurburgring circuit in Germany. Like earlier prototypes we've seen based on the standard GLC, this vehicle is wearing updated bumpers and light units front and rear, previewing a rather mild design update that should keep the mid-sized crossover fresh against key rivals like the Audi Q5 and BMW X3...

2019 Audi A1 Allroad spied

A prototype believed to be the 2019 Audi A1 Allroad has been snapped testing at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, wearing extra body cladding and a taller ride height. Beyond what we can see here, there aren't really any details available about the A1 Allroad. Audi has never offered one of its high-riding, toughened-up editions on anything smaller than an A4, so we're sort of in uncharted waters here...

2019 Audi A6 Allroad spied at the Nurburgring

The next-generation Audi A6 Allroad has been spied again, this time around the Nurburgring in Germany, wearing less disguise than previously. We already have a general idea of what to expect from the new Allroad's design, given we've already seen the latest A6 Avant, though the high-riding version will get some unique design elements and off-road technology to take advantage of the extra ride height...

2020 Porsche 911 GT3 spied at the Nurburgring

The new '992' Porsche 911 GT3 has been spied at the Nurburgring this week, spotted with its production body for the first time. Compared to less-extreme versions of the new-generation 911 we've seen recently, the GT3 prototype has a more aggressive body kit, with some bits still covered with black camouflage, along with that massive rear wing – the latter a pre-production component going by the rough look here...

Lexus LFA: Mystery prototype spied at the Nurburgring

A mystery development vehicle based on the Lexus LFA supercar has been spied at the Nurburgring, raising questions as to what the company is working on. This particular LFA appears to be equipped with the Nurburgring pack – which added a more aggressive aero package including a larger front splitter and side skirts along with a fixed rear wing – though the camouflage on the front and rear guards indicates there could be something else going on underneath the skin...

Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifts the Nurburgring - video

It seems like new Nurburgring records crop up weekly, and the whole caper can get a bit fatiguing. Vaughn Gittin Jr, drifter and certified madman, has managed to circumvent that fatigue with his smokey, sideways lap of the legendary 'Green Hell'. Central to the attempt was a supercharged Mustang GT, putting around 671kW to the rear wheels...

Ford GT roars around the Nurburgring - video

A Ford GT has been spotted doing rounds at the Nurburgring for the first time, despite the company previously saying it would not be chasing lap records with its flagship supercar. The blue vehicle appears to be stock – or close to it – and wears a UK registration plate. According to overseas reports, this is the same GT that visited the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month...

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 spied again

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has been spied again at the Nurburgring, ahead of an anticipated reveal some time next year. We can't see any new details over the vehicle spied earlier this month, but we can see the AMG CLA45 – and the standard Mercedes-Benz CLA, for that matter – will adopt a 'mini me' look in relation to the larger CLS...

2019 BMW 1 Series spied at the Nurburgring

The BMW 1 Series has been spotted outside the Nurburgring, and although the vehicle has roughly the same level of disguise as the model spied undergoing cold weather testing earlier this year, the lower speeds and clearer conditions give us a better view of the new hatchback. Standard BMW design tropes, such as the headlight graphics and tail-light design are all present and accounted for...

2019 Ford Focus ST spied

The 2019 Ford Focus ST has been snapped testing on the Nurburgring, revealing its aggressive bodykit and diffuser in greater detail than before. In keeping with the heavily-camouflaged vehicle we snapped in April, the ST looks like a regular Focus on steroids, with pumped-up air intakes up front and a subtle side skirt, along with 19-inch alloy wheels from the current-generation ST offered overseas...
