The much-hyped about McLaren P1 hybrid hyper car is in the news again. McLaren has released a video claiming that its hybrid wonder has completed the 'Ring run in under the hallowed seven-minute mark. While there have been several cars which have done this before, McLaren says that the P1 did this on road-going tyres and was driven all the way from UK to the track by Chris Goodwin. While McLaren hasn't revealed 'how much under 7 minutes', they did elaborate that the P1 did 178kmph on an average. The Nordschleife track is a good 20.8km. We believe a press release will follow after some days confirming the official timing.

With so much power on tap, its no wonder that the P1 does 0-100kmph in just 2.8seconds and 0-200kmph in 6.8 seconds and 0-300kmph in just 16.5 seconds.
