These days, if you (provided you’re a car manufacturer) introduce a new high performance car to the world without having put it through the bucolic bitumen bootcamp that is the Nürburgring Nordschleife, most gearheads will simply turn up their noses at you and be on their way. “How will we know,” they will say before departing, “that your new Apex-Spanker GT-RSX63Q won’t flambé its brakes after just one canyon run? Or that it won’t understeer into the sycamores if we try to take an off-camber bend at 60 mph? Show us its ‘Ring time so we might have at least some confidence in its abilities.”

Well, McLaren doesn’t exactly show the Nürburgring lap time of its new hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1, in this video. But it does show the P1 attack The Green Hell with a deluge of sound and fury. So we’ll forgive McLaren for not revealing the P1’s exact lap time (only saying it was under seven minutes) just yet. However, we’re hoping the exact number comes out sooner rather than later…
