Drag Race

The McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder Race a... Ducati?

Two of the ultimate hypercars race what's perhaps the ultimate motorcycle.

We’ve officially entered the era of the hybrid hypercar. With the additional use of an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery, brands such as McLaren, Porsche, and even Ferrari are now taking advantage of yet another technological method to create even more horsepower. Suck on it, Toyota Prius; electric motors aren’t just for being for green anymore. Ok, maybe these hypercars are more fuel efficient than their predecessors, but they’re also pushing the limits of performance. And what better way to test them than an all-out drag race?

Thing is, Ferrari refused to provide a LaFerrari for Autocar’s party. In its place, the UK publication opted for something different, yet still Italian: the highly exclusive Ducati 119 Superleggera. No electric motors here, just straight up internal combustion.
