As we get closer and closer to the debut of Ferrari’s next supercar, the successor to the Enzo, more details are leaking out surrounding the internally-named F150 Project.

With details surfacing earlier this week surrounding the final specifications on the exotic, it’s now being reported that the Italian automaker has estimated a 1:20 Fiorano lap time and a sub-7 minute lap time around the Nurburgring.

Those testing laps were done with Formula One driver Fernando Alonso behind the wheel, and if it proves to be true, it’ll be the first-ever production car to run the Nurburgring in under seven minutes.

The only street legal car to ever run a sub-7 minute time is the Radical SR8, though it’s hardly a production car and not street legal in much of the world. The next closest time belongs to the Gumpert Apollo, with its 7:11.57 while the generally accepted best lap time by a true street legal production car is the Dodge Viper ACR with a 7:12.13.
