Not what anyone was hoping it was there for, it never had the track to itself.

There was talk of them having a crack at the record between from summer to autumn last year. But obviously if they never had a clear track, then that would be difficult.

I have some fringed knowledge of some of the times / sectors / comparisons of that weekend but won't reveal until a full-on test has taken place as -

A) its not my place to;

B) hopefully a more sterile environment with a free track and favourable weather conditions will produce a clearer picture and

C) someone more closely connected to the event / car should have the right to reveal what the times were..

Just be safe in the knowledge that this thing is fast, very fast, very very fast
Craigy, Neil and Kannito like this.

The pace from 50mph-200mph including shifts from 4th to 5th to 6th and measuring the increments in between, with the knowledge of old tyres, it being early in its development and what appeared to be longer gearing in 6th, its certainly rapid.


The old adage of "saying the speed being too slow for the actual speed of the car" is true up to a certain speed in the lower gears, it is mind-blowingly quick.

I did in fact see it on track that weekend and will not argue that it was very quick in some sectors.

I can tell you that it runs from the LT on Döttinger Höhe!

I had some precious cargo in the LT when the LM was on track so I had to hold back, the only other time I saw it outside of having Maximus in the car I had just gotten on with bone cold tires. Was kind of a bummer as I would have enjoyed giving a chase. We bounced back and forth who was in front over a couple laps but if he was giving it his all it (to no surprise) would not have been a challenge. Thing sounded awesome and looked even better. Not often that you want to go park your 675LT behind the building so no-one sees it next to such a beautiful car ;-)
