Ferrari LaFerrari vs McLaren P1: Video
The 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari and the 2014 McLaren P1 make up two-thirds of the hybrid supercar trinity. When you have these two vehicles of mass destruction roaming around the streets, it’s natural to clamor for a review to see which of these two has the leg up over the other. CAR Magazine heard your calls for a dual review between the LaFerrari and P1 and has answered the bell. Sort of.
The review isn’t as comprehensive as we’d like. Actually, CAR editors-at-large Chris Chilton and Ben Barry spend the majority of the time chasing each other down in the mountains of Italy. No track test. No speed runs. No nothing. But hey, it still involves the LaFerrari and the P1 so it’s still worth something.
It’s also the first time — to our recollection, at least — that the two hybrid supercars have been pitted against one another. That track-day review will come soon enough, but for now, this is what we have.
If you’re not particularly adamant about watching a full-fledged review, this one should be a must-watch. There’s still something admittedly exciting about the LaFerrari and the P1 taking turns hunting each other down with two auto journalists giving their own play-by-play accounts.
