porsche-vs-ferrari-vs-mclaren-drag-race-to-200-mphThis clip brings us a drag race (to 200 mph) between a Porsche 918 Spyder, a Ferrari LaFerrari, and a McLaren P1. It is skillfully produced with pre-race car setup included. The sound of these three automotive masterpieces posturing at the starting line is enough to make your ears want to dance.

The 918 manages to produce 874hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque and it’s riding on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. All that power comes from a 4.6-liter internal combustion V8 engine and a trio of lithium ion battery powered electric motors. The LaFerrari is equipped with a 789hp V12 engine and a 161hp electric motor. That’s 949hp combined and it makes 664 lb-ft. of torque. It’s riding on Pirelli P-Zero Corsa rubber. The British made P1 has a 3.8-liter 727-hp V-8, paired with a 177-hp electric motor, for a total of 903hp and 664 lb-ft. of torque. The wheels are wrapped in a set of Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires. All three are $1-million plus sports coupes.

The Porsche gains the early advantage, as expected due to torque ratings, but the McLaren takes a decisive advantage near the 150 mph mark. The Ferrari takes a backseat to the McLaren but beats out the Porsche. These are some amazing looking and sounding cars.
