The Hyper Drag Race: McLaren P1 vs Porsce 918 Spyder vs Ducati 1199 Superleggara…

Lining up the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and Ducati 1199 Superleggera in an attempt to answer the question on everyone’s mind ‘Which of the new hypercars is the fastest?’, along with the eternal question ‘2 wheels or 4?’

With better than one to one power to weight ration they have many of the required numbers to make it, although most lack the top speed.

With the obvious omission of Volkswagen’s V16 hyper-car from the previous World’s Greatest Drag Race it is only fair that we answer the question left unanswered. Which hyper-car is faster the 691bph Lamborghini Aventador or the Bugatti Veyron? Can the Lamborghini cut it in the hyper-car class?

Motor Trend has once again supplied the video, organizing the event, answered the question. Presented for your viewing pleasure is the Bugatti against everyone. Like a game of Jeopardy this answer begins with a question. Does sheer power always win or can lighter but less powerful take the day.
