LAKE COMO –To drive even one of the latest trio of hypercars – the McLaren P1, the Ferrari LaFerrari, and the Porsche 918 Spyder – would surely be atop of most petrolheads’ wish lists. But to have the chance to own not one, not two, but all three can now become a reality as this glorious ‘Holy Trinity’ of Hypercars goes to auction at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Villa Erba sale on 27 May.
From the moment they were introduced – first the 2010 Porsche 918 Spyder concept at the Geneva show, followed by the unveiling of the McLaren P1 at the Paris show in October 2012, and then Ferrari’s LaFerrari at Geneva in early 2013 – it was clear that each of these hypercars was extremely special.
It is remarkable what three manufacturers were able to achieve using all the knowledge and expertise amassed by the these iconic brands over the many years they have been building street-legal cars. Once a vehicle reaches the nether regions of hypercar status, things like speed and comfort take a back seat to engineering prowess, history and automotive enchantment. The examples on offer at RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba sale surely prove this to be true.
Undoubtedly the most incredible Ferrari to have been produced in the 21st century thus far, the LaFerrari is nothing short of a game-changer. Having proven to be more than a worthy successor to the Enzo, the LaFerrari provides a performance that is truly electrifying. A virtually as-new example in traditional Rosso Corsa, this LaFerrari would be a prime addition to the stable of any tifosi, sure to bring them into the upper echelon of collectors worldwide.
One of Porsche’s most ground breaking automobiles, with the Paint to Sample colour being the most sought-after, and with the hugely desirable Weissach package, this particular 918 checks all the right boxes for the enthusiast looking to use Porsche’s newest and most impressive supercar, just as the factory intended.
It can be argued that there is no more aggressive or exciting road legal car available for purchase today. Offered in virtually as-new condition and ready for both use on the track and on the road, this car would be the ultimate acquisition for the utterly uncompromising horsepower-junkie.
