Ferrari LaFerrari vs McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 Spyder
Top Gear sizes up three of the most anticipated hypercars of 2013...

The McLaren looks like it has most to prove. Which is strange really because McLaren has heritage: the F1 was the definitive hypercar. Maybe they know that we know that it was a completely different group of people who did the F1 and the P1, so there isn't quite the heritage after all. Maybe they use this car as a deliberate answer to the people who say the MP4-12C lacks visual drama. Whatever. McLaren as a company presents itself as even more rational and functionally-led than Porsche, and so this is the car where aerodynamics - the reduction of drag and the generation of downforce and the extraction of heat - have most visibly informed the final shape.
