Nürburgring Lap time

Does anyone know what lap times the Gen 2 V10+ has pulled off @ Nürburgring? On Wikipedia is shows 7:32 in a Audi R8 V10 Plus driven by Christian Gebhardt in 2015.

Looking at the cars above the R8 on the Wikipedia page, I have this feeling the Gen 2 R8 could pull off a better time.

I’m not sure if OP was implying that the 7:32 was a gen1 time but, as you say, it’s definitely a gen 2 V10+ recorded with MPSC2 which I assume are 20”. The time looks fair to me and probably where I would expect it to rank, although I was surprised at the speed of the 991.2 GTS ~7:24.

With the road biased set-up of even the plus and relatively high weight, the R8 can’t translate what should be a significant straight line advantage into lap times. No doubt a different suspension setup, some weight loss and aero would make a huge difference – just look at the Huracan Performante times.

There is a comparison tool on the fastest laps website – the V10+ beats the 991.1 GT3 and the 991.2 GTS in every single performance metric except lateral G; corner speed seems to makes more of a contribution to lap times than straight line acceleration. Braking performance was similar.

Smile factor is bigger in the R8 though. :eek:
