The McLaren P1 has allegedly managed to lap the Nürburgring in an amazing 6 minutes and 47 seconds.

At the beginning of September we heard rumors about McLaren refusing to confirm P1's 7:04 lap around the Nürburgring as the supercar was just too slow during the attempt. Now, a YouTube user has posted a video with the P1 while tackling Nordschleife and he says the car lapped the German track in just 6:47 which would make it the fastest vehicle ever to lap the circuit, making it a full second quicker than the Radical SR8 LM.

The record has not been confirmed by McLaren but if the lap time is legit we are sure it will occur very soon, unless McLaren wants to improve the time even further if possible. This rumor coincides with the beginning of P1 deliveries and also with McLaren posting final performance figures for its latest supercar which sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and hits an electronically-capped speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).
