For Pikes Peak this year, Porsche looked to reset the record books by throwing seven-time Pikes Peak Champion Jeff Zwart behind the wheel of the 911 GT2 RS. But to make it even more exciting, they had Zwart pick up the car from Porsche Motorsport in Santa Ana, CA and drive it 1,132 miles to the start line of America's second oldest race in anticipation of setting new records.

While the achievement of besting his 2010 record setting run by 10 seconds and setting the fastest street-legal car ever at Pikes Peak is amazing enough, the video that Porsche produced of the journey is simply one-of-a-kind. From the adventure of getting to Pikes Peak to the actual car footage of it setting the record is simply incredible. Porsche did a fantastic job of capturing the elegance and beauty of Pikes Peak, while showing the exhilaration and danger of racing up the famed mountain.

Check out the video after the jump:

That GT2 RS really gripped well. Racing on some of the roads in the video are just way too risky for the everyday driver, i'd be afraid of spinning out near the edge of Pikes peak.

I shall continue to baby my Porsche lol, i'll let the pro racers do the crazy stuff.
