Autocar is citing a McLaren insider who said the P1 can complete a lap of the Nürburgring in around 6 minutes and 30 seconds.

Towards the end of last year we heard rumors about the McLaren P1 running the 'Ring in 6 minutes and 47 seconds. The British marque even released a video with the supercar tackling the Nordschleife but they didn't disclose a lap time. Now, a source within the company has told Autocar the P1 is "a fair bit quicker than that" and can do the task in "six minutes 30 something."

The British magazine labels the P1 as the current king of the 'Ring, but could be dethroned in the near future by the LaFerrari. At this moment only Porsche has official disclosed a lap time for its latest supercar, the 918 Spyder, which managed to run the Nürburgring in 6 minutes and 57 seconds and is now the fastest car around the German track to have global road homologation. Confirmed facts beat rumors so the 918 Spyder is currently the de facto 'Ring leader.
