    • McLaren Senna sets Hockenheim GP production lap record blowing away the 488 Pista by over 5 seconds

      Say hello to your new Hockenheim GP production car lap champion, the McLaren Senna. It isn't just faster than everything else in production, it's on another level. The Ferrari 488 Pista held the record with an unbelievably quick lap only for the Senna to trounce it.


      The Senna is over five seconds quicker:

        The new bar for performance, as expected. But when looking at that list I'm actually most impressed by the modified GT3 RS.... with a mere 520 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque it's putting up a lap comparable to 700 HP+ turbo cars.

        Would also love to see what the Senna can do at the 'ring...awesome.

        For reference the lap record is 1:11 set by Vettel in his Ferrari F1 car at the 2018 German GP.

        Amazing time by the Senna, really. But it’s still pretty freaking far from being an F1 car for the street.

        Hopefully the AMG One gets a bit closer than this.
