Zonda one-ups Ferrari 599XX

The famous seven-minute marker for production supercars was a pipe-dream until the Ferrari 599XX clocked a 6:58.16 two months ago with test-driver Raffaele De Simone behind the wheel.

But the 700hp V12-powered pony has apparently been whipped by fello Italian supercar builder Zonda.

The Pagani Zonda R has reportedly lapped the massive Nordschleiffe track in 6:47, almost 45secs below its Zonda F counterpart and over 10secs under the 599XX.

The alleged record lap was set with a 'standard' Zonda F, on a set of custom Pirelli P-Zero tires - a fact which may make the record harder to set in the history books.
