Has the LaFerrari XX lapped the Ring in 6:35?

LaFerrari XX

Just days before the LaFerrari has its global media launch a rumour has emerged that a LaFerrari XX prototype has lapped the Nürburgring in 6 minutes 35 seconds.

In case you were wondering, that’s a bloody quick lap time. There’s still a way to go, but we’re getting ever closer to Stefan Bellof’s 6:11 benchmark.

Like the 599XX before it—itself a sub-7 minute Ring hero—the hybrid XX, due for release in 2015, will be track-only and in some ways that renders its Nürburgring lap time irrelevant. Except it doesn’t, not to us anyway, because anything that lap the Ring well under seven minutes deserves repsect and attention. No matter what it is, no matter who can or can’t buy it.

We look forward to learning more about the LaFerrari XX and its reported lap time as time passes.
