Chris Harris Presents: THE Hyper-Hybrid Showdown

Holy shit. It happened. LaFerrari, McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, all in one place, on film, with stopwatches. Wow. If there's a car video on YouTube that's allowed to be over 52 minutes long, this is the one... not least because it also co-stars Tiff Needell and Marino Franchitti alongside Chris Harris. I think the internet sort of wishes this was the new TopGear!

What conclusions were drawn? I won't reveal the times (all set by Mr. Harris), only that despite different qualities, they were all but neck-and-neck. In fact, they were close enough together that you could pretty much just pick the one that takes your fancy... if you can actually decipher which one that is. To dumb them all down, the McLaren seems the most serious and physical, the Porsche the most advanced and grippy, and LaFerrari the most dramatic and exciting.

But at the end of it all, it's just about having three talented mates messing around on Portimao Circuit with about £3,000,000 and about 2800 horsepower. It'll put a smile on your face if you're even remotely interested in cars. I guarantee it.
