It sounds unbelievable for any car to lap the 12.94-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife course in only 5:19.546. The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo went 51.58 seconds faster than the former overall lap record, with an average speed of 145.3 mph. What’s even weirder, though, is that the last record remained unbeaten for over 35…
The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo is the kind of delightful vehicular creation that happens when you let engineers run free without having to adhere to strict series regulations. It is ludicrously fast, and 919 driver Timo Bernhard just destroyed the Nordschelife track record with a time of time of 5:19.546—nearly an entire…
The Nürburgring is heaven on earth for car nuts, attracting the world’s most interesting cars, including manufacturers’ latest models. You can even drive it yourself! Sometimes a dream trip to the ‘Ring doesn’t end up being quite so enviable, though, and here are this year’s fail compilations that prove it.
A surprise snow storm shut down the Nürburgring for a bit this Sunday after it slicked down the pavement for pure chaos. Some drivers enjoyed those cold, wet conditions more than others. To the highlight reel, away!
If watching a Porsche 911 GT2 RS reclaim the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record for street-legal sports cars isn’t your speed, rejoice! We have found the complete opposite. Boosted Boris took a Lada 2101 on the ‘Ring back in July, which goes at relaxing Sunday drive speeds whether you want it to or not.
Oh, that’s precious. Y’all thought you could steal the “fastest road car on the Nürburgring” title from Porsche? Porsche, who lives just a short drive away? That’s cute!!! Porsche took back the record for the fastest street-legal sports car on the ‘Ring with a 6:47.3 lap time around the Nordschleife course.
People will really take anything out on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It’s one of the the most infamous and dangerous race tracks on earth, but it operates like a one-way unrestricted toll road. I’ve found my favorite ‘Ring car yet: a glass-sided Audi hearse. Excuse me, I have a new final request to put into a will.
Race Taxis—mega drivers who offer rides in fast cars around the Nürburgring’s intimidating Nordschleife course—are some of the most fun you can have in the right seat of a car. One lucky rider got to see the Jaguar F-Type SVR Race Taxi make 43 incredible passes in one lap. That’s right. Forty-three.
It’s impossible not to love a good onboard video, and Setra Motorsport’s supercharged 2001 E46 BMW M3 will blast your eardrums with pure awesomeness. Let’s ride along with it on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife, where it laid down a ridiculously quick 7:16.927 lap time.
The NIO EP9 electric supercar already set the set the record as the fastest purely electric car around the Nürburgring Nordschleife with a 7 minute, 5.12 second lap, but the weather wasn’t just right. So, NIO says they went back to set a sub-seven-minute ‘ring time just because they could, setting a new record in the…
We love a good, ridiculous backfire. Even better is a supercut of awesome exhaust flames and pops on one of the most sacred spaces to gearheads on earth: the Nürburgring.

There are few things I enjoy more than seeing strange things on a race track. Fortunately, there’s a new compilation of some of the most delightful oddities spotted on the Nürburgring’s infamous Nordschleife course, including trucks, the European version of the A-Team van, and even a car with a little car on top.
Any time someone sets a Nürburgring lap time, the Internet will want to see the receipts. Electric vehicle startup NIO claimed that their EP9 supercar set a new electric vehicle lap record at the Nürburgring, so they released the whole, uncut lap in its eerily quiet future-whirring glory to back that claim up.
Do you see that magical opening in the barriers? That light at the end of the forest tunnel, where the dirt path cedes to glorious go-fast tarmac? That’s the Nürburgring’s grueling Nordschleife course, and here’s a rally-prepped Porsche 911 SC driving it in a direction that’s usually verboten.
Just because it’s wet at the Nürburgring doesn’t mean the day is a wash-out. You won’t be setting any lap records on the slippery surface, but you can get delightfully sideways much easier.

The Nürburgring is on nearly every gearhead’s bucket list, but this man went to far more incredible lengths to do it than most do. Jae Yeong Lee rode his 110cc, eight horsepower Honda Super Cub scooter approximately 11,200 miles from Seoul, South Korea, to do two laps of the Nürburgring.
