Pagani held the EERCDITC (extremely expensive road car-derived Italian track cars) record since 2009, when Zonda R beat the previous title-holder Ferrari 599XX.
Several websites are referring to social media posts suggesting Zonda Revolucion has set a laptime of 6 minutes and 30 seconds.
6:30 means the 800 horsepower light-weight track-special has beaten Porsche 918 by 27 seconds. It would even humiliate the 6:48 Radical SR8LM time recorded by Michael Vergers, which is the current fastest Nurburgring Nordschleife time for road-legal cars.
There question is, do we care about this record? EERCDITCs have never been my favourite class of performance cars, because they are not much different from any race-car. The only differences are high price tag, exclusivity, and extreme power and downforce, due to absence of regulatory restraints.
It is reasonable to think that no current race-car (excluding Formula 1) is faster than an EERCDITC. But even with all the downforce, you would have to be incredibly brave to do 6:30 around Nurburgring Nordschleife.
