[Video] Watch the record-breaking Nurburgring lap from inside the Nio EP9 image

Remember the controversy about the Lamborghini Huracan Performante’s real or unreal record lap on the Nurburgring Nordschleife – well that should fade away since the time has actually been bested by somebody else.

In case you somehow missed the Nurburgring Nordschleife love of late, the record for a production car on the famous track is now written in front of an all-electric vehicle. We’re talking about the Nio EP9, a limited-series supercar, that managed an utterly impressive lap in 6 minutes 45.90 seconds, which is not only faster than its initial lap that took home the electric record by 19.22 seconds but also beat the previous king – the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, which had registered late last year a ‘Ring time of 6:52.01 minutes. Nio has now made the news officially official by providing yet another video of the attempt that took place on May 12 with racing driver Peter Dumbreck at the commands.

The Nio EP9 is an all-electric supercar with a maximum power of 1,341 horsepower (1,000 kilowatts) – the so-called MegaWatt – thanks to four electric motors, able to reach 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.7 seconds. While it’s not as quick off the line as a Tesla Model S P100D, the EP9 is actually much faster when presented with a track, because it pretty much looks and behaves like a race car. Nio even states it can corner at 2.53 g at 143 mph (230 kph). The EP9 is a very limited production car – six have already been made and another 10 are on the roster.
