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

Porsche could have gone for a turbo. Crikey it knows well enough how to do them. A downsized turbo motor would have fitted in well with the fact that the 918 is the most hybrid-emphasized car of the three. But against that, Porsche has a massive heritage in endurance racing. So the 918's 570bhp naturally-aspirated V8 is inspired by (though it shares no components with) the high-rev unit from the RS Spyder Le Mans car. An engine with a pretty mad bark.
