P1 vs LaFerrari vs 918

Who will win this will be the biggest fight of this generation, like the Thriller in Manila but for cars. They all have had millions put into their development and all are competing for the title of King Hyper car but which is best here’s my verdict:

The Ferrari is easily the most glamorous with its bright Rosso red paint job it can’t be missed but it isn’t a drivers car its one of those cars like the F50 and the Enzo its so epic to look at and to drive feels epic but your always worried you’ll damage it so its kept in a garage with a cover over it never to turn a wheel again. It has the super star quality but its so fragile it’s kept hidden away.

The Porsche 918 however is the complete opposite. This car is so high-tech it could destroy the universe and rebuild it in under a week beating Gods record. But it doesn’t look quite as good as the other two in its dark grey paint job its subtle and understated. A hyper car needs to be flamboyant and out there and absolutely mental but this car isn’t you just cant imagine it in an exciting way just try and imagine a bright Lambo green one you can’t can you. I don’t want to say its boring, because its not in any sense of the word but its not got that special something that gets me going.

The McLaren P1 on the other hand is a mixture of the two it has the amazing looks of the Ferrari and the brains of the Porsche but it doesn’t go to far either way. The P1 is amazing to drive but has the feel that you could drive it everyday using clean and friendly electric power. I feel the P1 does hark back to the good old McLaren F1 it’s a massive step forward in motoring engineering just like the F1 was back in the day. The P1 is truly the best of the three and I think its fastest aswell.

Legends of the motor industry

Enzo Ferrari

Yes the man himself, the one who brought us the prancing horse of Ferrari without him the super car industry, would not be the same Lamborghini may have brought us the first mid- engine road car with the Miura but Ferrari is the true hero of supercars if its not red with a prancing horse on the badge then it can’t be a true thoroughbred super car. Known as quite a harsh man he managed to see the launch of the F40 one of the greatest cars of all time before his death in 1988 and had the F60 named the Enzo in his honour.

 

Henry Ford

The only man to rival Ferrari in the legend status he was the man to bring the world the production line, he brought the Model T into the world, by 1918 half the cars I America were Model T Fords. However contrary to popular belief he never said, “You can have any colour so long as it’s black.”

 

Jeremy Clarkson

Whether you love him or hate him Jeremy Clarkson is a legend. He is the one who is blamed by many for the death of Rover.  His non-caring attitude towards other people’s opinions has caused him to be a worldwide success, that and the fact he is on the most watched show on the planet.

 

Richard Noble

Many of you might not of heard of Richard Noble. But you should. This is the guy that pushed the limits of speed on land in the Thrust cars. He set the record in Thrust 2 at 633.468 MPH(1019km/h). He was also on the project for breaking the record in Thrust SSC pushing the record to 763.035MPH (1221km/h). Now he is pushing the boundaries again with the rocket engine Bloodhound SSC which is set to break the 1000MPH barrier. This guy is a true Hero and He’s British.
