    Surely you jest. You must mean MSNBC/CNN/ABC/CBS.

    yes, he must be joking because he got it exactly wrong.


    Re: Top Gear 918 vs P1

    Until TG tests a Hennessy Venom there will be no test of a real TG supercar test.  The Venom zero to 300kph time of 13.6 sec. Sorry PDK , X box, PDK, LF, P1 and 918 fans, but you will actually have to shift this car yourself.indecision

    Re: Top Gear 918 vs P1

    918 VS P1 VS LaFerrari: These tests are really for entertainment reasons regardless who does it.... Do you want to watch it? yes,   Why would u want to watch it? to see who wins?   Just like any football games you watch, to see who wins!  to cheer the ones you have in mind....  so, regardless who made this show, its going to be entertainment reasons, because there will be high rating...  How many of you guys going to buy these cars after you see the results?  For many of us here, if you intent to buy from these three (if there are still available), if 918 looses all tests, are u going to buy P1?  The answer is NO.  U will still buy 918!!!  hahaha!!  so Entertainment?  YES!!!  and Can't wait to watch it!!!

    Wrong Again!!

     

    If they are as irrelevant as you claim, why do you feel the constant need to denigrate and lie about them? Have you seen the cable viewership statistics? 

    Anyway, I'm sorry you dragged your own political views into this thread. It's unwarranted and not too cool.

    Why worried ? I think 918 is more appealing. Check out the head lights of P1 that looks like swans angry

    My apologies. I was ironic.irony.gif

    I honestly could not care less if one hyper car is one second faster or slower than the other around a sub seven minutes lap time which could best be described as a tail event. Temperature, humidity, air pressure, driver skills, driver breakfast (porridge or cereals?), etc. is more a factor at these times than the actual car.

    From a personal preference, I take the 918 any day. It can be a minute slower than the P1. Don't care. 1399487245626driving.gif

    Re: Top Gear 918 vs P1

    Acording to todays Autocar performance test of the P1, it is much slower than expected and disaster on wet track.

    If we compare their data with Motor Trends one for the non WS 918 pack, Porsche is faster on:
    0-60 mph,
    0-100 mph,
    1/4 mile.

    McLaren world is a little nervous today...:-)

    Re: Top Gear 918 vs P1

    While that is true. The Motortrend figures for Mclaren are faster than 918...

    The acceleration figures autocar got from P1are disappointing compared to factory numbers..

    Uh, you sure about that? Faster car they ever tested on the track, besting the radical even with what they say had damp patches. Doesn't sound like a disaster to me.

    http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/mclaren-p1/autocar-road-tests-mclaren-p1

    "The most impressive things about the McLaren P1 are not its outright pace – although that is breathtaking – but that such a usable, pliant and enjoyable road car can have such duality of character. And that a car so fast can be so approachable and engaging on a track."

    MT did 4.7 0-100 mph in the P1 and 9.8 @ 149mph in track mode, which is probably slower being that it has more downforce.

    You need to have all 3 cars together on the same day in the same place with ideal conditions to really know how they compare.
