If you’re a car fan you know what the HHHT stands for – if you’re still an apprentice we’ll let you slip this one and tell you we’re talking here about the holy hypercar hybrid trinity – namely the LaFerrari, P1 and 918 Spyder.
Namely today everyone talking about hypercars will know the trinity involves the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder – representatives of iconic sports car schools and holistic interpretations of the best on offer from their respective country’s automotive industry. Never mind the fact that there are other hypercars – these are the ones that can be found almost everywhere and won’t give you headaches because they may not be legal – or even safe – to drive. And because these incredible feats of engineering will not be easily obtainable – all the Ferraris have been signed off and Porsche has completed production of the 918 Spyder, we’re basking at every chance to see them in action.
And having all three going head to head makes our day even easier to get by – especially since this might be the very first instrumented comparison between them, with no input from the automakers. That’s because all three cars belong to one person – supercar collector Paul Bayley. He offered the chance to have them in a battle to the team at The Supercar Driver, which took the three gasoline-electric monsters on the runway of the Bruntingthorpe aerodrome. And in order not to spoil the fun of watching the video, we only mention that one of the hypercars managed to post a speed of 210 mph (338 km/h).
