Video of the McLaren P1 going sub-7 minutes at the Nurburgring

Driven from Woking, England to the Nurburgring in Germany, the McLaren P1 broke the sub-7 minute mark to join the ranks of a few other cars, including the Porsche 918.

Chris Goodwin, Chief Test Driver for McLaren Automotive, describes driving the Nurburgring as the “roller coaster from hell”… But the McLaren P1 soaked up everything in stride, ultimately going, time-wise, where few other vehicles have gone.

No one seems to know just how deep into 6 minutes the car went, but it really doesn’t matter. This is one very quick Brit.
