The most extreme and exclusive version of the McLaren P1, the LM, is now the fastest ever road legal car to run up the infamous Goodwood Hill Climb.
With Kenny Brack behind the wheel, a Swedish racing driver who signed with the manufacturer last September, the McLaren P1 LM managed to lap the 1.16-mile (1.87 km) long course in just 47.07 seconds.
This means that the road legal version of the P1 GTR is faster than the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the 49.27 seconds scored by Jann Mardenborough, and slightly more agile than the pre-production BAC Mono, which recorded an unofficial 47.9-second last year.
Nevertheless, don’t think – even for a second, that Brack’s run was easy, as the McLaren P1 LM didn’t seem to be too fond of the asphalt on Lord March’s estate. However, in the end, its 59 kg (130 lbs) weight loss on top of the standard variant and the power provided by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 hybrid powertrain as the P1 GTR, rated at 986 HP, helped it overcome all obstacles.
