About a week ago, car nut Alejandro Salomon released on his YouTube channel the first video in a three-part series testing five of the fastest cars ever built. The series is called Hyper 5 and today we have the second installment.
The first video outlined the test procedure and the five cars involved: the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] LaFerrari, McLaren P1, Pagani Huayra and Porsche 918 Spyder. The second video shows the cars compete in a track shootout. And in case you’re wondering why there’s no Lamborghini or Koenigsegg included, there’s another video that explains why.

Called upon to do the driving was racing driver James Sofronas, from GMG Racing. He’s drove the cars at the private race track operated by California’s The Thermal Club, and importantly he had never driven any of the cars before. Some readers may recall a previous test pitting the LaFerrari, P1 and 918 Spyder together used a driver that served as a McLaren development driver for the P1, hurting the credibility of the results.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until the third and final part of the series to learn the results. The third video will also see the cars compete in a quarter mile race. While you wait for it, tell us in the comments below what car you think will come out on top.
