At the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Kenny Bräck took the track-only hypercar converted to road-legal status up the tight course for a new record on the 1.16-mile (1.86-kilometer) hillclimb.
The feat was done in a mere, 47.07 seconds the fastest ever for a road-legal machine. The folks over at Goodwood did show us the record run in video footage, but we’re coming back to the run because a new video has emerged presenting the view from inside the cockpit – and boy do we see Bräck fighting to maintain control on the course. The hillclimb at Goodwood is well known for its difficulty – it’s an extremely narrow course and with the LM being very wide, we can imagine there wasn’t room for error. In case you forgot, the P1 GTR LM is Lanzante Motorsport’s McLaren approved road-legal conversion of the track-only version of the hypercar.
It comes with the circuit-ready aerodynamics as well as the 3.8-liter biturbo V8 with hybrid assistance packing 986-horsepower (725-kilowatt). So far, 27 GTR owners have asked Lanzante to switch their cars to road-legal status, for a chunk of money – 240,000 pounds. Lanzante Motorsport’s owner is also eying another record – Brack might soon be back in the driver’s seat in a bid to snatch the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record from the Lamborghini Huracan Performante.
