McLaren P1 Vs. Porsche 918 Spyder
When it comes to competition in the realm of hypercars, the Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 are equally impressive performers. The specs on these two gas/electric hybrid hypercars is ridiculously close. The McLaren produces 903-hp, 722 lb-ft of torque and has a top speed of 217 mph. The Porsche 918 Spyder produces 887 hp, 944 lb-ft of torque and has a top speed of 211 mph. When these two cars are put head to head on a drag strip, it really could come down to just how good of a driver is piloting each vehicle.
With that said, both of these hypercars were spotted in California on the runway at Shift-S3ctor's 2015 California Airstrip Attack attempting to trap the best half mile speed. Which one do you think exhibited the best launch control and overall performance?
