The McLaren MP4-12C GT3 can now lay claim to holding the fastest lap ever set at the new Highlands Motorsport Park in New Zealand.

All it took was a blistering lap time of 1:41.9 with Porsche 911 Cup racer, Craig Baird, behind the wheel.

The Highlands Motorsport Park just opened last month and it certainly kicked off its opening weekend in remarkable fashion with Baird and the MP4-12C providing a lot of the fireworks. In this video, you can check out seven different camera angles of the record-setting lap, complete with remarkable camera work on both the exterior and interior of the car.

We’re pretty confident that, at some point, another car will be able to hold the lap record at Highlands Motorsport Park. But for now, it’s the McLaren MP4-12C GT3’s turn up the record books and if you’re part of Highlands management, you couldn’t have picked a better super car/racecar to become the inaugural record holder of the fastest lap on your track.
