New lap record at Nürburgring

Watch the Nio EP9’s record-setting 6:45.9 Nürburgring lap

On May 12, a team from Chinese electric car startup Nio took the company’s EP9 to make another attempt at the Nürburgring.

The 1,342-horsepower electric supercar had already lapped the grueling German race track last fall in an impressive 7:05.12, but Nio knew the car had more in it.

With less traffic and better weather conditions, the EP9 completed the full 12.9 miles of the Nürburgring Nordschleife in an insane 6:45.90, beating the best street-legal internal combustion cars by a significant margin.

Now it’s time to sit back and take in the epic run in all its glory. Keep an eye out as the car exits the corners. The full torque from its electric motors provides slingshot-like acceleration. It almost appears as though the video is being sped up.

Powering the EP9 are four electric motors, each with its own gearbox. Total output is 1,342 horsepower, or one megawatt, and peak torque is 1,091 pound-feet at 7,500 rpm. That's good for a 0-62 mph time of less than 2.7 seconds, a 0-124 mph time of 7.1 seconds, and a top speed of 194.5 mph.

The EP9 is the halo model of Nio, and it’s certainly put the brand on the map. Just 16 of them will be built and right now it’s not clear if any will end up in the United States.

Nio will eventually sell cars here, or at least that’s what the company is planning. Initially, though, it will focus on its home market of China. After the EP9, Nio will start selling a three-row SUV called the NS8. Production is due to start late this year.

That's nuts.

For comparison the new Civic type R just took the FWD production record at 7:43:80.


The ring also claimed another idiot this past weekend on a tourist driving day.

It is.

Maybe it has traction control via current limiting, I dunno. Sounds more like a poorly written article.

They actually have full torque over a range of rpm. I worked on a car that had maximum torque from 0 to 3000 rpm.

And he topped out on the longer straights, I'm curious to know the speed reached.

Awesome video

Just think of it like that. All those turns and humps at an average of just over 100 mph around that track. Crazy

Sorta.



That curve is for a constant frequency.

With variable frequencies:

Fantastic. And elsewhere, a steam engine thread. Life is good.

Imagine what our world would be like if we wasted no effort on bullshit political and social issues and instead put all of our effort into science, engineering and technology.

That's nuts.


I've run that track MANY times on iRacing and at my peak, I still didn't have it memorized.

When I was at the Ring last year, I saw this kid and his type R getting pulled off by the wrecker.
