The McLaren P1 LM was launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June 2016, and it became the fastest road car to climb the Goodwood Hill. With a twin-turbo V8 cranking out 986 horsepower, it’s no surprise the car is cat-quick. Five P1 LM production cars were built over the past 11 months, and the identical prototype XP1LM has been undergoing rigorous testing.
During the final stages at Nurburgring, a Lanzante-modified XP1LM driven by Kenny Brack achieved the fastest lap of 6.43.2. The scorching ‘Ring’ lap shattered the record set by the Lamborghini Huracan Performante (6:52.01) in March.
The project marked the latest collaboration between Lanzante Motorposrt and ace driver Kenny Brack. The latter is known as the 1998 Indy racing champion. He is also renowned for his 1999 Indianapolis 500 win and for bagging the gold medal at the 2009 rally-x. Lanzante became closely associated with McLaren when it ran the Mclaren F1 GTR that emerged victorious at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995.
The P1 LM road car is meant to be the fastest, rarest, and last of the P1 iterations. All five P1 LM’s have been sold, and will be used in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan and the United Arab Emirates.
