Ducati 1199 Superleggera vs McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 Spyder

Here it is if you haven’t already seen it. The ultimate drag race featuring the most exotic sports cars and bike that you can find today. There is one Superleggera in South Africa to my knowledge. It was at Ducati Sandton last year and I believe it was sold for around R900 000.
