McLaren P1 LM GFoS 600x377 at McLaren P1 LM Sets a New Goodwood Record

You may not know this, but the hill climb part of Goodwood Festival of Speed is actually a fully fledged competition. Granted, nobody really cares about the times and records because everybody’s too busy ogling all those awesome cars. But they do keep records, and a McLaren P1 LM is its new holder.

McLaren P1 LM was, dare we say it, the biggest attraction of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, even above the Bugatti Chiron. This thing is a factory-sanctioned road-legal version of the P1 GTR built by Lazante, it costs over 3 million GBP, and it goes… well, it goes like a racing car:

As you just saw, it took pro driver Kenny Brack a hair over 47 seconds to cover the 1.16 miles Goodwood course, which is of course incredible. But besides the monstrous speed of the car, the footage also goes to show that although it’s road-legal McLaren P1 LM is still a full on racer at heart. We’re not exactly sure what kind of public roads they had in mind when they built this, but this fire-breathing dragon is going to melt the asphalt, set fire to the trees, and deafen children anywhere it goes in the real world.
