Video Gold: Ferrari 458 Chases McLaren P1 During Test Drive!

For the auto enthusiasts, you may already be familiar with YouTube user ‘Shmee 150’, who seems to encounter the most epic exotic car moments and is therefore a lucky bastard. Shmee has managed to capture another slice of video gold with this footage of a Ferrari 458 convertible encountering the next McLaren P1 out and about for a test run!

The McLaren P1 prototype

The Ferrari 458 driver was taking the hypercar for a spin when he noticed a McLaren P1 out in the open, making it fair game. The Ferrari driver did what anyone with a healthy brain and appetite for destruction would do: he tailed the McLaren and obtained some amazing shots, likely revving the engine to signal a challenge. McLaren P1P1 stands for ‘Project one’

The McLaren driver was apparently not interested in comparing power, as he made his way back toward the McLaren Technology Center with his tail pipes between his legs. Fortunately for Shmee 150, the P1 driver was forced to a stop behind a Peugeot in distress at a turnabout, where further footage was able to be shot and shared!

Which is more powerful: the 458 or the P1?

  • 2014 McLaren P1: Likely the special 3.8-liter V8 engine developed in-house at McLaren. While it is a V8 competing against V12 Ferrari and Lamborghini cars, it does bring the horses, 616 of them.
  • Ferrari 458 spider: The spider packs the same 4.5-liter direct-injection V8 as its coupe sibling, producing 562 horses.
