Lanzante’s McLaren P1 LM made its official debut at Goodwood FOS last weekend and, during the event, the car showed how powerful (I mean fast) the former track-only car is around the corners.
The McLaren P1 LM broke the Hillclimb record for the fastest time by a road-legal car when during the FOS’s supercar shootout the car driven by Kenny Brack managed to complete the hill climb in 47.07 seconds.
The time was 2.2 seconds faster than the Nissan GT-R Nismo, the second fastest road car there, followed by the Noble M600, which set a time of 50.10 seconds.
The McLaren P1 LM is the road-legal form of the P1 GTR converted by the British firm Lanzante. As the P1 GTR, the car carries a 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine supported by one electric motor generating together 1000 metric-horsepower.
Thanks to Lanzante efforts, the McLaren P1 LM manages to be 60kg (132 lbs) lighter and generate 40% more downforce than the track-only car.
Just five of these extreme machines will hit the roads and, so far, the price of the conversion is unknown.
