It's like they found the setting to turn off physics.

The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo is a technological marvel based on Porsche’s Le Mans prototype that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans from 2015-2017, but is now freed from any one racing series’ restrictions. That means that its hybrid powertrain now churns out 1160 horsepower, its active aerodynamics produce over 50 percent more downforce, and weight has been dropped to only 1872 pounds.

Want another unbelievable stat? Today’s top speed on the notoriously dangerous, twisty Nordschleife was 229.5 mph.




Why Porsche Destroying The All-Time Nürburgring Lap Record By 51.58 Seconds Is Such A Big Deal

Holy shit, that makes us clowns with powerful Corvettes look like we're driving tricycles.

I was watching the video and doing the kph to mph conversion in my head and thinking my math was off.

That was on the back straight. On some of the smaller straights, he was getting up to 340kph, or 211mph.
