Although it is not official yet, it appears that the McLaren P1 managed to lap the Nurburgring in just 6 minutes and 47 seconds. The McLaren P1 was caught yesterday at Nurbrugring, which means that we should wait for an official press release very soon. For those who don’t know, back in September the P1 managed to lap the German racetrack in 7 minutes and 4 seconds but the British company refused to confirm the time as it knew that its hypercar can be even faster.
With the new impressive 6 minutes and 47 seconds, McLaren P1 unofficially became the fastest vehicle ever to lap the Nurburgring, even faster than the Radical SR8 LM. Last week we announced you that the Porsche 918 Syder managed to lap the Nurburgring in 6 minutes and 57 seconds but Marc Lieb a.k.a. company’s factory driver said that the car can be even faster.
After seeing the McLaren P1 you can be sure that Porsche will try its luck once again on the racetrack. But, both cars could be surprised by the LaFerrari, which is also trying to set a record in Germany.
