    LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    A proper track comparison between the LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder will be available next month, but until then we have a first teaser video out of a total of three.

    There are plenty of videos on YouTube with the "Holy Trinity" as the supercar trio is known, but we are still waiting for a proper comparison between the three. It will finally happen in November as the guys from SCD managed to test the LaFerrari, P1 and 918 on the Silverstone track in UK. Behind the wheel of all three cars was BTCC driver Mat Jackson who put the high-powered hybrid supercars through their paces on the same day in identical track conditions, so the verdict will be as relevant as possible especially since all cars were stock.

    If you are wondering how where they able to obtain access to all three cars, these belong to Paul Bailey who is one of the very few people out there to own the sold out supercars. The McLaren P1 was his first purchase and later on he drove it to a Ferrari dealership where he took delivery of the LaFerrari. He didn't head back home as together with his wife they drove to a Porsche dealer to get the 918 Spyder.

    Two additional teaser videos will be out soon in anticipation of the full comparison video which will be launched in November.

    Ultimate... it was just a matter of time!


    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    Just Hope the owner doesn't get into trouble with Ferrari. They're very iffy when it comes to this kind of things.

    If I were him and the LaF was my property, this would not bother me in the slightest!

    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    I hope so.

    Does anyone care which car wins? They are fabulous cars with different strong points. If I had to guess, the results would be "each car has its own strength and attraction. Picking the best would be a matter of which strength in a car you prefer."

    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    I personally don't care but many people do. Especially when both Ferrai and Mclaren made it  difficult for top gear and others to pit them against each other. Ferrari even threatened to ban owners from getting any future limited editions if they lend their cars to the program.

    Actually the P1 fan boys REALLY REALLY want their car to win, especially in a 3 way shootout, just to prove they are not actually the 3rd place car. 

    The 918 already has the title of Ring King, and pretty much beat up the P1 whenever there is a head 2 head.

    The LaFerrari is a Ferrari masterpiece,  again enough said.

    The P1 is ...................

    But truth is, most owners of P1, 918, LaFerrari wouldn't care less, they have already made their choice based on what they conceived is the reason, and all are enjoying their cars.

    McLaren Life will implode if the P1 finishes 3rd.  Cannot wait to see the video regardless of the outcome.


    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    Does anyone else feel that it's unfair that P1 has a race mode that lowers the car to non road legal height but the other two doesn't?


    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    Well, it is the only car among the trio that puts the heavy hybrid batteries high up on the chassis and raise the natural Cg of the car.................

    I would love to own a 918, even a LaFerrari (after Futch bragged so much about it) and I even like the 650S and the 675LT. However, the P1 doesn't attract me...at all and I don't have a clue why. Good thing that I cannot afford it anyway. Smiley

    I stayed with an old College friend night before last on Lake Geneva and next door neighbor drove by in his La Ferrari.  Saw an Enzo 5 minutes later and also saw 73RS, several Aston-Martins, E-Type Lightweight, etc.  Quite a car town!

    RC - As far as I remember the Audi R8 didnt attract you either some years ago, didn't it? Today you fancy it.... some things have to grow.

    I never liked the McLarens. Today I really could see myself driving a S650.Smiley

    And I have the scoop on the background. :)

    He originally wanted a white car with Martini livery. Couldn't find one so he ended up buying one from his business partner who had 2 cars, instead. I hope his partner didn't charge him full market price.

    Horacio is a Porsche guy, he still has his CGT.

    That's a shame, he could have likely made an offer on one at a dealership here in the US, assuming importing it wouldn't be a hassle.  Car has been sitting there for quite some time and the temporary tags were soon set to expire.  Owner didn't seem all that concerned about picking it up and turned down an offer to have it delivered in an enclosed trailer.  I stopped by for a visit and noticed it covered up in the service bay, I guess the owner didn't want people see it.  But it's pretty obvious what is sitting there in the service bay even covered up.IMG_4437.jpg

    Kinda strange that Porsche couldn't make that happen for him, sure he's "competition" but he's also a legend in the car world. I would've guessed Porsche would've been happy to accommodate him. 


    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    He didn't place his order early enough. Simple as that.

    Porsche is not going to make 1 more 918 just for him.

    Re: LaFerrari, P1 and 918 comparison finally happening [video]

    This is very interesting! Unlike the Silverstone test where the cars are all owned by one person, this appears to be cars provided by the factories! You can clearly see that the Porsche is a factory car. In fact you can even see the Porsche "uniform" being worn by the 3 guys on the right. You can also see Ferrari development driver Raffaele de Simone in the pic, so clearly the LaF is a factory car too. Can someone confirm from the McLaren plate if that is a factory car too?

    In terms of the track, it looks like it's Portimao.
