    Has the new McLaren P1 blown the 918 out of the water ? P1 reportedly runs a blistering 6:47:

    Probably. The P1 was driven at Goodwood by Jensen Button and it scared him without a helmet. There was P1 talk about testing the 'ring even when Porsche announced their lap. The LaFerrari is in the mix too. They have been testing for awhile at the 'ring. I like the P1 best.

    The new Ferrari FXX has reportedly run a 6:37. It is a production car, but it's not street legal. So, it appears the McLaren P1 is the King for now.
