This isn’t a race that you watch to see who wins. As amazing a car as the McLaren 650S is, Ferrari would have to answer to the world’s most irate customers if the range topping LaFerrari hypercar couldn’t outrun a 650S. The purpose of the race in this video is to, as Shmee puts it, show the difference between a supercar and a hypercar. Or to put it another way, the difference between a $1.4 million car and a $267,000 car. There is also nearly a 300-horsepower difference, 950 vs 666.

Even with the winner already being a foregone conclusion, these are some of the most interesting kinds of races to watch, just to see where all of that extra money goes for the more expensive car. It’s especially impressive when you consider that the point at which the LaFerrari is becoming little more than a dot off in the distance, the 650S is traveling at 193mph. Truly incredible.
