McLaren P1 can allegedly lap the Ring in “about” 6m and 30s image

The McLaren P1 may just be the fastest ever production car to lap the Nurburgring after its official time is said to stand at “about” 6 minutes and 30 seconds.

Back in late 2013 we learned that the McLaren P1 has apparently lapped the famous Nurburgring track in 6 minutes and 47 seconds, shattering Porsche 918 Spyder’s times of 6 minutes and 57 seconds and becoming the fastest ever production vehicle around the German circuit. Now, a few weeks later, it seems that the McLaren P1 was even faster than originally announced and the guys at Autocar are giving its time of 6 minutes and 30 seconds.

The McLaren P1 is taking its power from a 3.8 liter twin turbo petrol engine, which is backed up by an electric motor. The first ever hybrid supercar developed by the British based automaker has a total output of 903 HP and a peak torque of 978 Nm (722 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is done in 2.8 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph).
