Americans "outgun" British with even better "hypercar shootout"

Cover for Americans "outgun" British with even better "hypercar shootout"

Hybrid hypercar comparisons, once viewed as nearly impossible to make, are becoming almost commonplace. Just yesterday, independed British motoring journalist Chris Harris published his version of "hybrid hypercar" test, following a similar test by UK supercar owners club "Supercar Driver", published a month ago.

Today there is yet another test, this time from United States, and, in addition to the usual suspects - Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1, it also involves two extra combatants - Bugatti Veyron Supersport and Pagani Huayra to make it a 5-way track and dragracing competition.

This test, called "Hyper 5", was realization of a dream by American entrepreneur Alejandro Salomon. Most of the cars in this test he owns himself. Track driving duties he outsourced to James Sofronas - racing driver and president of race car engineering company GMG Racing, which, curiously, specializes in Porsche racing cars.

Hyper 5 was hosted by Thermal Club Raceway in Coachella Valley, Southern California. Needless to say, we have a new road car record for this track.
