EDO Competition Porsche 996 911 GT2 RS

EDO Porsche 996 911 GT2 RS

New course record on the "Nordschleife“

The spectacular course record of the Donkervoort has been smashed after only a one year history – by the edo Porsche GT2 RS from the small but apparently invincible edo competition team with its driver Patrick Simon. He burned in 7:15.63 minutes, more than only one new reference time in the historical asphalt of the “Nordschleife”.

This September, a light weight Donkervoort struck a breach into the Porsche-Phalanx which dominated the ring until that point and set the measuring pole to unattainable heights for other road-certified vehicles with a legendary time of 7:18. But obviously not high enough for the record hungry crew of team-owner Edo Karabegovic and driver Patrick Simon with their much loved “Biene Maja” Porsche GT2 RS. After the win, the „Nordschleife“ Tuner Grand Prix 2005 course record was next on the agenda.

Simon steered the edo competition-bolide with concentrated effort on the legendary “Nordschleife” . Under the scrutiny of the official time-referees of the magazine "Sportauto“ with their impressive time-recording-equipment. The Porsche crossed the first measuring point, level with grandstand 13, and went the 22 kilometers distance to hunt for the best time.

Simon achieved a lap, three seconds faster lap of the “Ring” than any previous driver. At the “Döttinger Höhe” he reached a top speed of 288 km/h. ”More is not possible because of the wing attitude”.
Directly after his hot lap the „Wiesbadener“ gave a sober account of the miracle time to the numerous spectators and journalists : "That is the best road car that I have ever driven so far .
The car can perform even better and its true potential would have probably been demonstrated if it wasn’t driven on road tyres.“

The colours are the same of Barcelona's taxis. Fastest taxi in the world then, I guess...

Performance is awesome, but I would never add those ugly black curves and decals on the car (even though EDO would probably call it the ´racing livery´). Why???

The same reason Britney shaved her head -- a cry of attention.

It doesn't really need the livery for attention. Read the extra info I added to the first post about the Nordschleife.

Maybe they're using the paintscheme because a taxi company supports them

Impressive to set a new record around the ring with that. I don't know why but the 996 GT2 is one of my favorite Porsche's of all time.
