Nürburgring: 6'57'', 7'54'', Two lap records, but only one tire!

Where Porsche and Renault Sport hold one record each, Michelin has two!

The MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 high performance tires are definitely not afraid of the "Nordschleife". The Nürburgring is the global reference circuit for demonstrating the performance of super sports cars and there were two records broken during the last 10 month with each vehicle being fitted with MICHELIN tires.

7’54’’36

This is the new lap record set by the Mégane RS Trophy 275-R on the Nürburgring in June 2014, in the front wheel drive category.

6’57’’

This is the lap record time achieved by the Porsche 918 Spyder to make one circuit of the famous Nürburgring track (or 20.832 kilometers, or 417 seconds of "extreme grip").
