    • Sport Auto McLaren 720S Nurburgring laptime test - 7:08.34

      The McLaren 720S is considered the overall high performance sports car champion right now but many have asked what time it is capable of lapping the Nurburgring in. Well, Sport Auto sheds some light on that question with their Nordschleife Hot Lap test.


      The 720S completes a 'Ring lap in 7:08.34. Most people will now take this time and say the 991.2 GT2 RS, Huracan Performante, and Aventador SVJ are quicker track cars.

      Not exactly fair as Sport Auto did an independent test while the aforementioned cars have record setting factory funded efforts.

      You would think the 720S would be under the 7-minute barrier though.

        That car is amazing! Topping 190 on the straight is unreal. I can't wait to see what they do with the LT.

        This time was achieved on Pirelli Corsa rubber and it's not stated whether or not this car is the lightest spec like the press car MrJWW currently has so I'm sure sub 7 is possible with this car.

        That's a huge point.
