Nardo High Performance Event 2009 by Autobild 480x280

Continental and German magazine Auto Bild Sportcars have tested 18 high performance models during their yearly Nardo High Performance Event. Together, a total of 11,135 horsepower competed to smash all records. 13 Tuners were competing in edition 2009.

Speeds up to 250km/h or 155mph are quite easy to reach for a decent supercar or tuned sports car. But beyond 250/155, key factors come into play. Not only do you need enough engine power, but the wind resistance picks up rapidly and vehicle weight is playing a vital role on the asphalt friction. All vehicles were fitted with Conti tires during the event.

New records were set for fastest Van – of course the TH2 RS -, fastest Combi, fastest Corvette, fastest cabriolet, fastest vehicle running on gas, fastest SUV and fastest Mercedes. Oh wait and they also set a record for the fastest Opel or Vauxhall (for UK readers).

In the list below you will find all figures. You will spot the brand new Panamera from Edo Competition and 9ff, but also the MKB SL 65 Black Series with its 1250Nm torque. The fastest car at Nardo 2009 was the 9ff TR 1000 with a top speed of 376km/h (233mph).
