Ferrari was clear – they do not let any official production film their LaFerrari in a race against any of other two hypercars – the 918 Spyder or the P1 McLaren. However, that was back in 2015, and now, many months and races later we know that all three hypercars are more or less the same and can only dominate in one segment.
So, the P1 is the sharpest, the Porsche the fastest accelerating and the Ferrari the most exciting.
That, however, does not mean we do not want to see them racing. So, welcome to the San Antonio Raceway where visitors had a chance to witness a drag race between the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
Both cars dressed in white lined up at the drag strip and set off their quarter of a mile dance. As the Porsche has an all-wheel drive setup, it surged ahead and stayed there till the end cloaking 10.4 seconds at 140 mph.
The LaFerrari was only slightly late to the finish line but was traveling a bit faster than the Porsche actually.
Nevertheless, it’s always nice to see the 887hp Zuffenhausen machine race the 950hp Maranello’s Prancing Horse. This was, of course, an amateur drag race. If we take a look at some magazine and independent tests, both cars can do a quarter of a mile in less than 10 seconds. Amazing.
