Two New Hypercars: McLaren P1 vs. Ferrari LaFerrari

Two of the biggest and most talked debuts at this year’s Geneva Motor Show are the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari.

The P1 is a successor to the legendary McLaren F1 and the LaFerrari is the successor to the Ferrari Enzo.

Both cars are just breathtakingly awesome, packing a hybrid powertrain and incredible performance statistics. It will be a while until we can see first real world comparisons, but it is worth the wait. Here we have put together main specs and live pictures from Geneva for both cars. Enjoy!
