Yes with the probable 3-4% speedo overread the speedo reading of 372 km/h equates to actual speed being in the 356-361km/h range.

And what if there is downhill and/or tailwind... that's why these speedometer videos aren't very meaningful.

I agree, in a perfect world one would eliminate all the variables and have optimised speed tests but even then they will be questioned by some :P

Spa laptimes seem bogus. A 430 is 9 seconds faster than a LaFerrari and only 1 second faster than a 918? Other laps show the very slight advantage of awd.

LaFerrari is much faster only on a straight line. It is more powerful, it is lighter than 918 but... Porsche is faster on track! 918 is unbelievable!
LaFerrari is the best way to show how Porsche is a masterpiece.
Ferrari management is terrified by 918... they denied to any of LaFerrari owners to make track comparisons against Porsche.

Too many people miss facts. The Porsche is AWD, has four wheel steering, which helps it corner well despite the weight, and has much more torque and traction. Yes, it’s an awesome car but that doesn’t mean the Ferrari isn’t.

I Think That Power/weight ratio is Causing The Problem Here,I Think The LaFerrari is Faster.

The Porsche has AWD and has 4 wheel steering, hence helping it to sling out of corners faster, this is why on a power circuit like Silverstone the times are very close
