Which is Fastest to 186 mph? LaFerrari vs. 918 Spyder vs. P1
And so the titans convene. When it became known that Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren each had hybrid hypercars in the works, the world had one collective question that merited investigation. Which is fastest? For that answer, take a peek below. YouTube channel TheSUPERCARDRIVER decided to solve that lofty query by running the hypercar trio—Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1—from naught to 300 kph (186 mph) on the long expanse of the UK’s Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome. In case each hypercar’s power figures escape you temporarily, here’s a refresher. The LaFerrari combines hybrid drive and a 6.3-liter V12 for 949 horsepower. The 918 Spyder leverages a 4.6-liter V8 and all-wheel-drive to the tune of 887 hp. The McLaren P1 sends 903 hp to the back thanks to its hybrid 3.8-liter V8. Let’s race.

Spoiler alert, it’s the McLaren that takes the crown in the dash to 186 mph, at least in this test. However, it wasn’t a runaway victory. With a time of just 5.52 seconds from zero to 100 mph, the Porsche 918 Spyder is in a league of its own in terms of off-the-line speed. The P1 came second at 5.93 seconds with the LaFerrari in third at 6.48 ticks.
After that, it’s clearly the reign of the McLaren P1. The McLaren eats through Porsche and gradually stretches its legs on the Ferrari. The end result? The P1 hit 186 mph in 20.11 seconds, followed by the LaFerrari at 21.99 and the 918 at 22.95 seconds. While there can only be one winner, each of these hypercars is admittedly very, very special.
