The TechArt GT Street RS is the new Sachsenring lap record holder, but how much faster than the LP 670-4 SV was it? Details inside.

When German tuners TechArt modified the Porsche GT2 little did their engineers know that the car would shatter the Sachsenring lap record set last year.  The TechArt GT Street RS slashed over four seconds off the old time, finishing the 3,671 meter circuit in 1:31.94.

The car embarassed the previous record-holding Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, which finished the same lap in 1:36.29.

The test run was recorded by AutoBild, who arranged for a comparison between the TechArt and several other cars.  Amongst the tests was a 0-100 km/h sprint, that the GT Street RS finished in 3.5 seconds.

With 690 horsepower and up to 634 ft-lb of torque, the TechArt GT Street RS shows improvements over the 997 GT2 by 160-hp and nearly 130 ft-lb.
