A couple months ago, Lamborghini set the Nurburgring lap record in a production car with a time of 6:52, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder. In previous weeks, McLaren has already beaten their record. In fact, the McLaren P1 LM completely shattered their record with a time of 6:43.2.
Yeah, you read that right. McLaren beat Lamborghini’s record by about 9 seconds.
The McLaren P1 LM is a track car modified to be street legal by the company Lanzante. The car was originally a P1 GTR, which is designed for the track and was not legally allowed on the street. Lanzante then took that car and modified it to become street car.
McLaren never officially timed the P1 GTR around the ‘Ring, and since Lanzante isn’t officially backed by McLaren, they took their modified LM and took it for a drive.
