The claim is not correct.

That was my first reaction too, but it looks like they weaseled their claim by qualifying it as the fastest "serial production" lens.

Stanley Kubrick famous candle lit scenes of Barry Lindon were shot with an f/0.7 Zeiss lens

That was a purpose-built lens, there were only 10 ever made.
