Hi fastedlaps,
You are absolutely right, we already know the laptime for the 20.6 lap of the SLS AMG Electric Drive, it was 7:50,98 Min. It is just subtracting 5.25 seconds that were needed for that intervall section (and are shown on the display, by the way) from the Overall time of 7:56,23 Min.
Appreciate if You were so kind and note that time and driver name to the 20.6 track laps summary .

Hello Markus! I will add the time to "Nordschleife full" page, but I also think it would be no great crime to manually time the pit exit as start line for 20.6 lap and add your time to the regular 20.6 page as well. It took ~6 seconds to finish the 200 meter start-finish straight.

Manual start/finish timing via YouTube video is perhaps not the most scientific timing method, but the error introduced is probably no more than 0.1 - 0.3 seconds which is nothing over a 7 minute+ lap.

Considering the Chinese Nio EP9 whatever it was called, did it over one full minute faster is absolutely astonishing. Though it may not be road legal, still quite impressive, especially when you look at the Goodwill lap

Yeah, why not, time goes on.
In 2013 that SLS AMG Electric Drive outperformed the the Audi R8 electric car and gave them a hard time when they just wanted to promote their efforts. At that time it was No.1.
And: the SLS is road legal, the car was available, not a prototype car.
