Review 29 April 2014

A £650,000 supercar can so often feel too scary and edgy to drive at ten tenths. Not the Porsche 918 Spyder though. Most people could get most of what this car can do out if it. And some people will get closer to the edge than ever before. The McLaren P1 and LaFerrari will need to be very special indeed, freaks even, to deliver a wider range of abilities than this.

One thing is for sure, the battle between the Porsche 918 Spyder, LaFerrari and McLaren P1 is going to be one hell of a fight.

Looks like it might be cheaper to buy a 911 Turbo S and pay Walter Rohrl to drive you around. Were you allowed to overtake him?

Steve, of course, is an exceptional driver but even I was able to keep up with a 911 turboS in a 918. Google. Porsche 918 driveby on YouTube

That 918 Spyder is an exceptional car goes without saying but now I'm very curious as to how the P1 and the LeFerrari would measure up to it. That would be one h**l of a comparison.

Nice looking!

Yeah it's true it's got a cleaner less complicated look, than the new McLaren P1 and the new La Ferrari. Some people will prefer this relatively sober approach to design of a super sport car, while some others will prefer the more dramatic looking La Ferrari og P1.

I wonder, in relation to cars such as the Lamborghini Muira, Ferrari F40, McLaren F1 & Bugatti Veyron, how the 918 will be remembered in 20 years time?

What you look for from a car.......Top speed?,how quick it accelerates?, fit/finish?, how exclusive it is?,how it looks?,the Veyron, in a straight line will be ultimately faster, it has a higher top speed,doesn't do corners that well,so i'd say the 918 is an all rounder, does most things well.Having watched the 918 on vid, i'd say it's the everyday Porsche product again,oh,just for a wind up....Walter wasn't really trying....ha ha!

    Decent styling, a well-judged interior and good practicality means Fiat's 500X is a worthy entrant on your compact crossover shortlist

    The new i20 is a very spacious, well-kitted and keenly priced addition to this competitive segment, but it’s let down by weak engines

    This sporty 911 Carrera plugs the gap between the standard Carrera S and the hardcore GT3 successfully
