They say records are meant to broken and automakers took that message to heart as Nürburgring records were falling left and right in 2014.

They say records are meant to broken and automakers took that message to heart as Nürburgring records were falling left and right in 2014.

Things got off to an early start as the SEAT Leon Cupra 280 set a new front-wheel drive record for lapping the Nordschleife in 7:58.4. This record was short lived as Renault returned in force with the Megane RS 275 Trophy-R and reclaimed the record by posting a lap time of 7:54.36.

The Porsche 918 Spyder managed to hold onto the volume production car lap record but Koenigsegg CEO Christian von Koenigsegg has announced his intention to beat it with both the Agera R and One:1 next year.
