You’d think that it’d be simple to find out which of today’s hypercars is fastest, right? Simply get the LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 onto the same racetrack on the same day and put them through their paces. But it isn’t that easy. The three companies don’t want to risk not coming in first. As Top Gear mentioned before they went off the air, they weren’t allowed to put all three on camera at the same time for a race around a track.
But that’s all changing now. An uber wealthy car fan who owns all three cars — the holy trinity of the McLaren P1, the Porsche 918 Spyder and the LaFerrari — decided to put them in the hands of a British Touring Car Champion to find out which one was fastest.
This is it.
All three cars and their respective laps were carefully managed so that the results could be accurately measured. The cars had been serviced a week before the race and they all packed a full tank of fuel, as well as Racelogic gear for accurate timekeeping.
Despite the fact that extreme care was taken to make sure the results are accurate, all three lap times are within a margin of error.
