Watch the McLaren P1 LM Set the Production Car Record at Goodwood

Street-legal hybrid hypercar dominates Festival of Speed

It comes as no surprise that one of the most successful racing teams turned automaker would break several production car performance records. A new video shows a McLaren P1 LM shatter the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb record for street-legal cars.

Retired Swedish racer Kenny Brack completed the course in 47.07 seconds in the hybrid hypercar during the 2016 Festival of Speed Supercar Shootout.

The McLaren P1 LM is based on the track-only McLaren P1 GTR and modified by Lanzante Motorsports for street-legal status (in markets outside the U.S.). Power for the McLaren P1 GTR comes from the automaker's 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 and an electric motor. In the P1 GTR, the combo makes 986 hp or 82 hp more than in the standard P1. Other performance enhancing bits include a wider track with racing slicks as well as revised aerodynamics and more downforce.

While no details have been revealed in the transformation from the track-only P1 GTR to the street-legal P1 LM, Lanzante Motorsports will only convert five examples. The P1 GTR and P1 LM suffixes are throwbacks to the legendary McLaren F1 GTR and McLaren F1 LM cars.

Check out the video below to see Brck set the new street car record at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb.
