The FIA World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours winning Porsche 919 Hybrid’s Evo version has broken another lap record on Friday.

Driving the upgraded 2017 LMP1 car with several modifications, two-time Le Mans winner Timo Bernhard took the challenge to dip under the five minutes bracket to break the 35-years long record – also set on a Porsche.

Bernhard clocked the Nuburbring-Nordschleife at 5m19.546s, thrashing the 6m11.13s laptime set by Stefan Bellof on May 28, 1983 in a Porsche 956 C. Two months ago, Neel Jani had set the lap record at Spa-Francorchamps in the same car.

The car has been fitted with the upgrades which were to be brought about in the 2018 season along with several other aerodynamic modifications. With the fuel limit increased and also the energy recovery system boosted, the output peaks at 1160bhp.

The car’s front and rear end has been altered to more suit the F1-style, allowing for increased amount of aerodynamic efficiency. The overall modification helped them in a 53 percent higher downforce and an increase in efficiency by 66 per cent.

The 919 Hybrid is on a tour around the world with the next stop being the Goodwood Festival of Speed (July 12-15) followed by the Festival of Porsche (September 2) at Brands Hatch and finally the Porsche Rennsport Reunion (September 26-29) in Laguna Seca.
