VIDEO: Ferrari 599XX Sets New Lap Record for Production-Derived Sports Car at the Nurburgring

Records are meant to be broken, though we’re not quite sure what kind of record the track-focused, but not street-legal, Ferrari 599XX broke at the Nurburgring race track.

Ferrari 599XX 2 VIDEO: Ferrari 599XX Sets New Lap Record for Production Derived Sports Car at the NurburgringThe Italian maker said in a press statement that the 700HP 599XX, which inspired the road-legal 599 GTO, is the first ever “production-derived sports car to break the 7-minute barrier on the 20.832 km Nordschleife circuit, lapping it in 6 min 58.16 sec.”

For comparison, the Dodge Viper ACR and the Corvette ZR1 turned the ‘Ring in 7:22.10 and 7:26.40 respectively, however, unlike the juiced-up Ferrari, both American sports cars are street legal.

In any case, the video of the 599XX lapping the Nurburgring is definitely worth 7 minutes of your time.
