one more: "There's a McLaren dealer going in across from our Porsche dealership. In talking with those guys they said they contacted the manufacturer about the ring time as they have sold some P1's and the customers want to know. McLaren told them the P1 ran a 6:47 on street tires and a 6:33 on slicks. The only reason there holding back on releasing the time is because there waiting for Ferrari to release the LaFerrari's time first so Ferrari doesn't use their time as a benchmark and try and go beat it"
This opens a whole new realm in my opinion... This is like the McLaren F1 or the Jag XJ220 - it's something so much more than the rest, it's almost unreal. I can't imagine how fast that thing is - it's quicker than the Ferrari 312T F1 car of 1975 around the ring (6:58s), and it's road legal! "
