Wednesday Matinee: McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder Face off on Track[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiyyO7vrdiI[/youtube]
The McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder are natural rivals: Both are mega-expensive, mega-fast hypercars that also happen to be hybrids. But how do they match up on track, specifically the same track under similar conditions? That’s what evo magazine’s Jethro Bovingdon wanted to find out, so he invited McLaren and Porsche to send their hyperactive hybrids to the picturesque Anglesey Circuit in Wales so he and the team could see which could scamper around the track faster. Eventually (and inevitably), one car did lose but, because the evo video crew was there to record the proceedings for posterity, we all win.
