This Is The Difference Between A Hypercar And A Supercar

Drag Race

Watch a Koenigsegg One:1 humiliate an Audi R8 GT Spyder in a drag race.

Some say the major difference between a hypercar and a supercar is the price. Putting the multi-million-dollar classic Ferraris to one side, the likes of the Bugatti Veyron, Pagani Huayra, McLaren P1 and Koenigsegg One:1 all carry seven-figure price tags. But they also have performance beyond your everyday supercar. So, just how big a difference is there between hyper and super cars? The BHP Project demonstrated the gulf in class when pitting its 1,340-hp One:1 against a 552-hp Audi R8 GT Spyder on an airstrip in the UK.

After an impressive start, the R8 is quickly caught by the Segg, which then pulls away and keeps on pulling to the utter disbelief of the R8 driver. His highly capable, 197-mph supercar gets obliterated. And it's not pretty.
