Epic Test: Hyper 5

In the realm of the $1 million+ Hypercars, there is more myth than fact. That is why Alejandro Salomon (aka @salomondrin), who has a garage that includes a Pagani Huayra and a new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, has blessed the automotive community by testing 5 of the fastest cars available in North America. The hybrid trio; Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1, and LaFerrari will go head to head with not only each other, but the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and the Pagani Huayra as well. This is epic.

This is quite an important test, and credit to Mr. Salomon, who has done his due diligence to make this a fair comparison. First and foremost, each of these cars is a privately owned customer car, which means no manufacturer poking their nose where is doesn’t belong. Secondly, the same professional driver will test all the cars, to eliminate any variability in driver ability and doubt. Lastly, each car is exactly how they came off the production line, with no modifications and stock tires.

In this three part series, they time the cars around the same track on the same day, as well as clocking a quarter mile time. Salomon also explains why there is a notable absence of Koenigseggs; their present line-up is not legal for road use in the U.S, where the test took place.

The entire Hyper 5 trilogy is worth a watch, not only from a technical standpoint, but also on an entertainment level as well. The production quality is top-notch, and Salomon does a great job hosting the test as well. Kudos to the Hyper 5 team as they have managed to do what no one else is able to: objectively test the 5 fastest cars available in North America.

Check the videos out below, I won’t spoil the results, but I will tell you that they are quite interesting!
