What happens when you put a Bugatti Veyron, Pagani Huayra, McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and a Ferrari LaFerrari in the same track at the same time? Short of the world actually melting into a puddle, you get to witness filmmaker Alejandro Salomon’s three-part series called “Hyper 5”.

The premise of Hyper 5 is pretty simple. You get five of the world’s fastest and most powerful supercars, run independent tests on each of them around the track and on the drag strip, then document the whole thing to see which one reigns supreme. This is the first part of the series. In it, Salomon spends the entire episode giving each supercar proper introductions. None of the actual tests were done in this episode because Salomon’s apparently saving that for the second and third installments.

Be that as it may, we still get top-quality, film making production, which adds to the incredible build-up of seeing all five supercars in action. Salomon did a good job giving each car its turn in the spotlight, even pointing out that none of these exotics came from their manufacturers. They’re all customer cars, free from any modifications, and all running on stock tires.

We’re going to have to wait for episodes two and three to see how these tests end up going. As far as putting my money on any one of them, I’m going to steer clear of picking a favorite because all of them have as good a chance as any at being the best among the lot. Besides, my choice would’ve been the Koenigsegg One:1, except that it’s not part of the quintet.
