The Nordschleife of the Nürburgring is one thing above all, a legend. And when it comes to legends and defeating them, the big names in automotive history are not far. Fast. More quickly. Driving the 20.832 meters fastest is the last real challenge that automotive giants fear. CO², EuroNCAP and sales figures are forgotten - when it comes to the legendary “Green Hell”.
British understatement - or lack of success? No idea. But the British announced today that the McLaren P1 has joined the “Sub Seven Club”.
The British don't go into the exact time in the video - but it was probably less than 7 minutes.
916 PS system performance. 900 Newtonmenter force. 375 pieces for a purchase price of 1.1 million euros. The McLaren P1 is a car of superlatives.
No less impressive, the Porsche 918 Spyder.
He is also a member of the “Sub Seven Club”! In 6 minutes and 57 seconds, it was the fastest street-legal sports car on the Nordschleife to date.
The Porsche 918 in figures: 887 PS, 768.026 € Expensive and already sold out.
And the Nissan GT-R NISMO will cost no fantastic sums - with less than € 110.000 you should be able to take a seat in the cockpit of the Japanese wonder athlete. This corresponds to the tenth part of the McLaren P1. For something about 8 seconds that you lose on the Nordschleife.
Yes - the McLaren video is well done, yes - the 918 Spyder is a moving Viagra pack, but sorry - only the NISMO GT-R is really impressive. Because despite its fantastic performance, it does not remain a wet dream for real speedheads.
