Porsche 918 Spyder: a Ride In Porsche's Hybrid Hypercar - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

Porsche was testing the 918 at the Nurburgring, they invited us to take a quick ride on the road, not on the track sadly. I normally hate these shotgun features, unless they involve Group B cars, but the 918 needs some understanding.

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps the definition of the modern day hypercar. Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past 15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.

BMW M550d X Drive road test. It has more torque than the space shuttle and BMW claims it will do over 40mpg. BMW also says it won't be selling the car in the UK or the US, the places that DRIVE is most commonly viewed. But when something has 3 turbos, you've got to go drive it at 155mph: no?

The Porsche 918 Spyder Tested - CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
The plug-in hybrid, mid-engine hypercar: The Porsche 918 Spyder. Tested by /DRIVE's Chris Harris at the Valencia circuit in the winter of 2013. The Porsche 918 Spyder has come a long way since when we first saw it at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. Competing against the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1, it is the cheapest of the trio of new hypercars at a base price of $845,000. The engine weights 140 kg according to Porsche and it delivers 608 horsepower (453 kW) at 8,500 rpm and 528 N·m (389 lbf·ft) of maximum torque. This is supplemented by two electric motors delivering an additional 279 hp (208 kW) - One 154 hp electric motor drives the rear wheels in parallel with the engine and also serves as the main generator.





Rally Heaven - Shotgun in a Lancia Stratos and Delta S4 - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
This might just be the best day of my working life. The nut-job launch event for the Pirelli P7 Corsa Classic was pure, Italian, chaotic genius with Markku Alen and Juha Kankkunen. Watch and smile.





Snowdrift: Volvo S60 Polestar (with a bit of C63 AMG). And a drag race. - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
They drive a car from Sweden to the UK to avoid the snow. And it snows in the UK. We got to play in it though, and that cool air probably made it good for at least 508hp. It's a small-volume concept for now, but we had a C63 on display to add some perspective (actually, just because it was hilarious in the snow)





Porsche 918 Spyder driven - is it better than a Bugatti Veyron?
The Porsche 918 Spyder is the ultimate combination of cutting-edge technology and conventional supercar wisdom. Steve Sutcliffe puts Porsche's Bugatti Veyron-beater to the test. SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar A £650,000 supercar can intimidate even the most confident driver. Not the Porsche 918 Spyder though. Most people could get most of what this car can do out if it. And some people will get closer to the edge than ever before. The McLaren P1 and LaFerrari will need to be very special indeed, freaks even, to deliver a wider range of abilities than this. One thing is for sure, the battle between the Porsche 918 Spyder, LaFerrari and McLaren P1 is going to be one hell of a fight.
