It’s rare to see both the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari in person. So at least you can enjoy this one of a kind wallpaper of two hypercars side-by-side.
There was so much excitement and hype at the time of the launching of the Ferrari LaFerrari. It was heavily anticipated by many people around the world. And if you are wondering there is so much hype into it, well, the Ferrari LaFerrari just carries an engine that produces a whooping 950bhp. It has a 626cc naturally-aspirated V12 engine which gives out 790bhp at 9000rpm and 516lb ft of torque at 6750rpm and combine it with a 60kg lithium ion battery inside the car which, through its electric motor can provide performance increase of 160bhp and 199lb ft. So all in all, the LaFerrari now have a whopping 950bhp and 715lb ft, it now has more power than its main two rivals the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder.
The same can also be said about the McLaren P1. It is McLaren’s first hybrid-drive car which shares much with the MP4-12C, but employs a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) in place of the starter motor. The engine uses a bespoke block casting with the KERS system and larger turbo’s than the 12C. The result is 727 bhp from the turbocharged engine and 176.6 bhp from the e-motor which torque fills the turbo lag. P1’s chassis is derived from the MP4-12C’s with hydraulic springing that can lower 50mm in race mode. The rear wing is also deployed in race mode that can be used to as an air brake during braking. Despite being fully performance oriented, the P1 includes heated seats, a stereo, air conditioning and all the amenities of a high-end road car.
