Someone add a note to P1 LM time, it was set with a Pre-Production car and on top of that they asked a factory driver to get behind the wheels.
...PLEASE REMOVE IT!! ...
It's not an Authentic Lap Time.
The ordinary P1 crashed several times in its early stages, after many modifications and tests, it set a very disappointing time that they decided not to say how embarrassing it was. Mclaren stays quite for a while and releases the GTR version, then few months later they asked Paul Lanzante to do them a favour and do 5 LM cars. The one tested is not one of the 5 production cars.
It takes you back to the F1 which set its Top Speed with a Pre-Production car too. Marketing Hype. Put the cats back and it will be slow, much slower.
Around the track ? It will be all over the place, then they decided to do a GTR version to go up against other LeMans cars to fight for the title. It won one Lemans title and after that it was a major failure.
Alfa Romeo: 4
Now if we look at the 720S production car and wonder why is it slower than these heavier cars
- Huracán Performante
- Aventador LP750-4 SV
- Ferrari 488 Pista
- Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Pro
- Porsche 911 GT3 (992)
If one thing the 720S is good at, it is straight line / Drag Race battle.
It's a lighter version of todays EV Tesla with ICE.
Thank you for your time.
