Audi RS 3 Prototype Nurburgring Nordschleife M2
The Audi Sport RS 3 sedan isn’t a vehicle you’d expect to see racing around Nürburgring Nordschleife, but when piloted by Frank Stippler, it managed to set a new record there. That’s right, it managed to clock a time of 7:33.123 minutes, beating Jorg Weidinger in the BMW M2 who came in at 7 minutes and 38.71 seconds.

Power comes from a turbocharged 2.5L inline five-cylinder engine making 401 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, enabling it to rocket from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Keep in mind that this prototype was fitted with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R semi-slick tires, a 19-inch ceramic brake system, an RS sports suspension with adaptive damper control, and an optimized chassis setup.
