The German premium fastback Porsche Panamera, in a more powerful Lion version, has just set a speed record at the Nürburgring. The car was able to complete a full circle in 7 minutes and 11 seconds.
Porsche may have just set a Nürburgring racetrack record for sedans – the Panamera Leon fastback completed a full circle in 7 minutes and 11 seconds. For those not in the know, the Lion is a lighter and more powerful version of the five-door fastback. This version of the model is more powerful than the 550hp Panamera Turbo.
Rumor has it that the Porsche team has brought a timekeeper and a notary with them to set the speed record that was achieved by the camouflaged Panamera.
According to our sources, representatives of the brand took several pictures and recorded a video – these materials will then be presented by the press service of the brand during the official announcement of the speed record.
At the moment there are very few details about the so-called Porsche Panamera in the Lion version. This series of photos shows little, although we can see the massive intercoolers behind the grille vents. This Panamera features a set of 21-inch SportDesign wheels with yellow brake callipers behind them. It is possible that the car received a carbon ceramic braking system. The uniqueness of this Panamera is also reflected in the racing seat belt and the sports buckets in the cabin.
Previous reports suggest that the Panamera car will boast 750 horsepower and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. The same engine is used in the Panamera Turbo, where it produces 550 hp. The Lion fastback is known to be 249 kg lighter than the Panamera Turbo, and its total weight is just over 1,814 kg.
