Porsche breaks towing record at the Nurburgring

Porsche breaks towing record at the Nurburgring

Just recently after breaking records with the mental GT2 RS, Porsche has claimed another record at the ‘Ring. It used its Panamera Sport Turismo and towed a classic junior Porsche tractor around the race course in just 12:06 seconds and hit over 180kmph while at it.

Now there were a lot of quick cars scorching the Nurburgring this year which include the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, Mercedes-AMG E63S Estate and not to forget the ballistic Lamborghini Huracan Performante. While these cars managed phenomenal lap times, none had a trailer hanging off their backs. The Panamera  definitely had the oomph to pull this feat thanks to its twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out 550bhp across all four wheels and can sprint to 100kmph in just 3.6 seconds. Now that’s some serious capability for a station wagon.

Will this trigger a hauling records of sorts? We don’t think so, but what we can say is that this is definitely a more entertaining way of setting records and still highlight the capability of a car to the hilt!
