Corvette Z06 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Really?

October 10th, 2016

This is definitely a drag race because one car gets dragged (to death) the length of the track. As one might expect, a contest between an all-wheel drive 887hp spacecraft and a 650hp rear-wheel drive sports car will easily be won by the spacecraft. Of course, the spacecraft in this scenario is the Porsche 918 Spyder, with its $1-million price tag, and the lesser sports car is the Corvette Z06 at roughly one-tenth the cost of the German monster. The Spyder (it’s more fun when you say it with a German accent) is truly an automotive work of art. It Read More

Porsche vs Ferrari vs McLaren – Drag Race to 200 MPH

September 7th, 2016

This 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 Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder vs Dodge Viper ACR vs McLaren P1

September 1st, 2016

This video saga involves three vastly different exotic cars, on the same tires, on the same track, and with the same driver. No, it’s certainly not drag racing, but it is an extremely even test of some of today’s most outstanding automobiles. The cars are the Porsche 918 Spyder. It is a hybrid high-performance vehicle that features a mid-mounted, 90-degree V, 4.6-liter engine, with a flat plane crankshaft, and two-electric motors making 887hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque. That’s pretty impressive but the sticker price is downright shocking at a cool starting point of $847,975. The Dodge Viper ACR represents Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder – Roll and Dig Racing

February 8th, 2016

You gotta see what happens when a million-dollar Porsche 918 Spyder shows up at the Street Car Takeover in Atlanta, Georgia. Unlike most footage that you see of this elite supercar, this clip brings us some drag racing in addition to some roll racing. First up is a dig racing pass against a overmatched Camaro. The Porsche lays down a 10-second pass and he ain’t even got warmed-up yet. Next we find out that Ferdinand did not create all Porsches equally, as the 918 runs all over a 911 Turbo. There’s tons of great racing action and (for the record) Read More

Hypercar Shootout from the U.K.

October 30th, 2015

This clip comes to you from the iconic Santa Pod Raceway in Wellington, England. It features three of the most extraordinary supercars on the planet. From Italy we have the Ferrari La Ferrari. It boasts a fighter jet inspired profile and 950hp. The La Ferrari’s 789hp 6.3-liter V12 internal combustion engine gets a 161hp boost from an electric motor and it costs around $1.4-million. From Germany we have the Porsche 918 Spyder with 887hp and a 211 mph top-speed. It costs $1-million. Finally, from merry old England, the McLaren P1; it gets its 903hp from a 3.8-liter “petrol” engine and Read More

Drag Racing Huracan vs 918 Spyder

September 9th, 2015

These are two seriously elite supercars and they are lining up head-to-head on a closed airstrip for a one-mile race with a rolling start. Both cars begin rather timidly and proceed gently to 60 mph – then all hell breaks loose! The Lamborghini leaps out in front of the Porsche and scampers down the track at a break-neck pace. Around 140 mph the 918 overtakes the Lambo and leaves him in his wake. As you probably know, the Huracan is Lamborghini’s newest creation. It features all-wheel drive, a 602hp V10 engine, and a price tag of $240k, or about $4,000 Read More

Drag Race: Bugatti Veyron SS vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 15th, 2015

From the moment that you hear the 918 driver gleefully exclaim, “Let’s get this #*@!%#@$”, you know that you are in for a hard fought drag race. Face it there are not too many cars that are going to take the hole shot away from a Porsche 918 Spyder. If there is one car that is capable, then it just might be the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (world record top-speed production car). As expected, the Porsche grabs the initial advantage (at least in the first pass) and holds on until the 1320-foot mark in a desperate grab for victory. The Porsche Read More

1,325HP GT-R vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 8th, 2015

Two of the most prominent supercars on the planet square-off in this epic battle of speed and driving technique. This clip provides video evidence than a $100k supercar can tangle with a $1-million supercar and come out on top. Although the Nissan has been drastically modified (probably at least an additional $50k), many would consider it the underdog in any race that includes the legendary high-performance-hybrid Porsche 918 – not so fast! The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine and a series of lithium-ion battery powered electric motors to generate 887-horsepower and accomplish a stunning Read More

Koenigsegg Agera Takes on All-Comers at VMAX200

May 11th, 2015

Take a gander at this Swedish supercar as it tows the line against a Ferrari LaFerrari, a Porsche 918 Spyder, and finally against a Ferrari 458 Speciale. The VMAX200 Hypermax, held on a private runway near London, England, is a top speed driving event geared towards the world’s most exotic automobiles. Over a billion dollars worth of rolling-stock regularly participates in this contest that tries the limitations of sports cars such as the McLaren P1 and the Koenigsegg CCX, as well as various Bugatti, Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini models. The Koenigsegg Agera N, shown in this video, has been modified from stock. It features Read More

Ride Along in a Porsche 918 @ 218 MPH on the Autobahn

May 7th, 2015

Put your safety belts on and place your seat backs in the upright position. These familiar words signify time for take-off and this Porsche hypercar is certainly about to take-off. The driver is chasing a 1140-horsepower Koenigsegg Agera R, to no avail I might add, and the videographer is strapped into the passenger seat giving us an incredible view. The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a 4.6-liter internal combustion engine and a series of electric motors to generate 887-horsepower. It can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.2-seconds with an estimated top speed of 214 mph. As you can Read More
