  • 2016 McLaren P1 LM prototype

    The McLaren P1 LM is currently the fastest street-legal car around the Nürburgring, with retired racer and current McLaren test driver Kenny Bräck taking the car around the German track in just 6:43.22 during final testing in March 2017. The record for production cars is the 6:44.97 that was set by a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ earlier this year. Recently, a P1 LM was taken for a run up Colorado's Pikes Peak. This wasn't a time attack so the driver wasn't pushing the car to its limits. It's still fun to watch, though. The sights and sounds are amazing. Launched in 2017, the P1 LM...

And if it were perpetually 2004, the sounds coming from these cars would definitely be our cell phone's custom ringtone. The piercing sound of the FXX K's naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 and the P1...
