EVO has put together two of the hottest supercars money can buy these days, the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
A new comparison between the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder has been put together, this time by EVO, in an attempt to find out, once more, which one is the best. The Ferrari LaFerrari is the missing rival from this new comparison but, just like we are used to, some of the performance figures, including the Nurburgring time, are not known on the Italian hybrid supercar even now, almost two years since it has been officially unveiled, in Geneva.
The McLaren P1 has a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 petrol engine under its hood, which is backed up by an electric motor. The total output produced stands at 903 HP and the peak torque is 978 Nm. The unit is connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, powering the rear wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 2.8 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph). The Porsche 918 Spyder has a 4.6L V8 engine with two electric motors. The total output is 887 HP and 1,275 Nm of torque. Top speed sits at 345 km/h (214 mph).
