Here is the third and final video in an independent comparison of the trio of world's best supercars. The three cars of course are the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder. The independent testing is much appreciated in wake of Ferrari's absurd control freak media policies.

The first test had the trio duke it out at the Silverstone roadcourse in the UK. The P1 took the victory there although we wonder if there was a British bias.

The second test was a 1/4 mile drag race at the Santa Pod raceway in the UK. This network did not feel the drag racing and the way the results were presented were very well done. The P1 had the fastest trap speed of the trio and the 918 Spyder had the quickest ET.

Well, maybe the third time's the charm? This is a longer drag race up to 186 miles per hour which will allows these vehicles to stretch their powerful legs. Based on the results of the previous test the 918 Spyder should get a lead out of the hole only to be eventually passed by the P1 and LaFerrari duking it out on the top end.

What happens is that the P1 and LaFerrari are indeed the faster than the 918 Spyder. The 918 Spyder does not get a good launch and somehow in damp conditions the LaFerrari beats the other cars off the line. That should not happen with the 918 Spyder all wheel drive especially with the cars all on street tires.

Fortunately, they do have the cars run several times. Performance measurement is courtesy of a VBOX. The 918 Spyder averages the quickest runs to 100 but past 100 miles per hour the P1 just pulls away. The LaFerrari trails the other two to 60, 100, and 150 but shows its power and top end prowess by 186:

All three of these cars are absurdly fast. The 918 Spyder just puts its power down the most efficiently but it is also the heaviest due to its all wheel drive system which becomes a detriment past 100. The P1 seems to provide the best blend of top end punch and traction off the line. The LaFerrari does well but loses out which is maybe why Ferrari tries to control its testing as they would never let a result like this reach the public if they could prevent it.

It is good for enthusiasts that Ferrari was not involved in these tests.
