McLaren hasn't revealed the precise time set by the P1
The McLaren P1 has acheived its target of a sub-seven-minute lap around the Nürburgring, according to its makers.
The manufacturer has confirmed the hypercar completed its 12.9-mile lap at an average speed of more than 111mph. Theoretically, an exact 111mph average speed over 12.9 miles would take about 6min 59.17sec.
However, McLaren hasn't revealed the exact time of the run. The Porsche 918 Spyder set a 6min 57sec lap time in September, which was verified on video.
McLaren has firmly stated in the past that its target time was only sub seven minutes, with the P1 a regular visitor to the Nürburgring track throughout 2013
McLaren's chief test driver, Chris Goodwin, drove the lap and said: "The track is like the rollercoaster from hell. However, the car feels balanced and poised throughout, and inspires you to push on with the levels of grip and all-round ability.
"With a car this fast, stability is just as important as ultimate grip, and some of the bumpiest sections of the track are also the fastest."
The firm has released a short film about its lap attempt.
