McLaren wants its P1 to run a Nürburgring lap time of under seven minutes, so perhaps it’s not a surprise that the British automaker won’t confirm the rumors of a 7:04 time.
Even though 7:04 is an extremely fast lap time for a production car, and it would trump the 7:12 set by the Dodge Viper ACR, McLaren doesn’t want to make the time public until it breaks the seven-minute mark.

Regardless of whether or not the 7:04 lap time will be made public or official, it would set the P1 on par to be one of the fastest Nürburgring vehicles ever created. Only the Radical SR8 models would best it with sub-seven-minute lap times, and it’s hard to argue that those are actual road-going, production cars.
