Just .6 sec quicker than SS1LE Camaro around the track. Stupid.

The reference is wrong though

if you read the article carefully, you'll see that 765LT laptime mentions there.

"To give you some idea of how elite 22.2/22.3 seconds is, the 755-hp, 3,093-pound McLaren 765LT takes 22.3 seconds. So yes, both Lamborghinis are world-class handlers. Remember, straight-line acceleration grabs all the headlines, but the figure-eight test is what matters when you get out and actually drive."
Proves one thing ie. the phenomenal acceleration of the 765LT doesn't guarantee a really fast lap time. Wait till they get their hands on a STO and you'll see a sub 22 sec lap :)

It should be understood, that MT Figure-8 is not a race track in the usual sense. It's just two circles with a diameter of 200 ft exposed from the cones. It can be installed anywhere, so the level of grip isn't constant, and some deviations in the distance are also possible.
And even if MT conducts tests at the same time and in the same place, F-8 laptimes are still not very indicative for cars of such as 765LT and Huracan STO. Since the average speed on the "track" is usually about 40-45 mph, they simply don't have the opportunity to use their strengths in terms of power and downforce. I'll even assume that STO on the F-8 would be slower than Evo and Performante since it lacks AWD.
It will be much more interesting to see what STO can show on real GP tracks.

Fair point and therefore the figure eight is of little value in determining how fast cars can lap real racetracks...

its not really a good indicator of track performance this track. (e.g) the 600lt has a better time than the 720s yet is slower on every other track. overall, on the few tracks the 765lt has been on its results were disappointing
