    Jethro Bovingdon pits the McLaren P1 against the Porsche in our most epic track battle yet.

    About logo. The Porsche logo is a coat of arms that shows: a riding horse and a deer antler, framed by red stripes. The emblem is dedicated to the home city of the concern - Studgart. Strips and horns are symbols of the city, and the stallion is depicted in connection with the fact that originally in place of the city, in the year 950 there was a horse farm, around which a whole city was gradually built.

    Which, for me, makes it faster. Like a rear-drive, really. The feels like it answers a wider brief: Which is the greater superpower: A reboot or two later and the P1 seemed back on form, but it never came close to repeating its earlier performance so it leaves Bruntingthorpe victorious but with its credibility as a technical tour de force slightly tarnished.

    Three very different hypercars, all unleashed upon the world at broadly the same time, with spookily similar levels of potential to amaze and entertain their lucky owners. Never before has the uber-wealthy car enthusiast been so well catered for, and perhaps the most extraordinary thing about the latest chapter in the history of the hypercar is that most of them are already sold out.

    McLaren hint that next generation P1 hypercar could be fully-electric. The rarest will be the McLaren P1 , with just being made, then LaFerrari on , with Porsche hoping to find homes for Spyders.

    Having been one of the very fortunate few to drive all three, albeit on separate occasions and in different circumstances, here are some initial thoughts about how they compare.

    The Ferrari feels quickest in a straight line, just, followed closely by the P1 with the being merely incredible back in third place.

    But the P1 feels torquier and therefore more explosive in the mid range than the Ferrari. Which is ridiculous considering how ballistic the LaFerrari feels between rpm and its ear-splitting rpm rev limiter. Steve Sutcliffe straps in to see. What separates them mostly obviously here, though, is the way they harness and redeliver their electric power. In the and P1 you quite quickly run out of e-puff if you drive them hard for sustained periods, and the only real way to get it back is to slow down a bit until the batteries can regenerate, mainly via the engine in the P1 on a small throttle opening in a high gear or via the brakes in the In the Ferrari , however, you harvest power all the time, and there is no 'e-mode' as such.

    As a result, you have access to the full bhp all of the time, which effectively means you have another couple of hundred horsepower to play for much of the time. The Porsche feels heavier on its feet than the others generally, and from memory it understeers a touch more when you push it hard, again almost certainly the result of it weighing a good kg more than the P1 and around kg more than LaFerrari.

    The Ferrari also makes the best noise — by far. They each sound completely fascinating in their own individual way, however, so choosing the best noise — much like choosing the best handling set-up, the best steering and even the best car — is always going to be subjective ultimately. Having said that, the P1 definitely feels stiffer and generates less roll than the LaFerrari , even in its most comfortable setting — but it also feels more refined somehow than the , which has the noisiest drive-train of the three.
