There is an incredible racetrack in a picturesque town in Germany called Nurburg that was opened all the way back in the 1920s. The circuit is configured in three ways: the combined circuit, the Grand Prix Circuit, and the Nordschleife, also known as the North Loop. Altogether, the circuit comes to 15.7 miles of demanding racing, with 170 turns and more than 1,000 feet in elevation shifts, making it the lengthiest racetrack on Earth. It also happens to be among the most lethal for any kind of driver. Not surprisingly, the Nordschleife is a leading testing ground for auto manufacturers as they put their speediest and most efficient models to trial. The following vehicles have passed the grueling German challenge with flying colors to become the speediest street-legal vehicles to have accomplished the notorious track.
Porsche 991.2 Turbo S
The modern Porsche 991 Turbo S is not for casual usage, being among the finest GT vehicles on the market today. Certainly, it is a superbly speedy sports car, but the Turbo S is more for zooming through the Autobahn gracefully rather than beating lap times. Its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat six-cylinder engine provides a whopping 580-horsepower that allows the Turbo S to dash to 60 mph out of a stationary position within 2.8 seconds, maintaining a 205 mph top speed. With this combination of an advanced four-wheel-drive setup and a ton of speed, it is no surprise that a 7:17 lap was achieved by the Porsche.
