    And by smashed it, with Stefan Bellof who ran a 6:11:13 lap record in a Porsche 956c, Timo Bernhard went around in the 919 Hybrid EVO in just 5:19:546.
    The 919 Hybrid EVO weights 849 kgs has a 2.0L turbo V4 engine running on E20 producing 720hp at a 9000 rpm redline. Along with two energy recovery systems, brake and exhaust. The combustion engine propels the rear axle while the electric motor boosts the front axle with 440hp to help acceleration. The recuperated energy is stored in a liquid-cooled lithium ion battery.
