Ferrari - McLaren Sets The Record Straight About Top Gear's 'Cancelled' Hypercar Battle Against The 918 And LaFerrari - Top Gear

Last night’s episode of Top Gear featured James May driving a LaFerrari in Italy. Upon returning to the studio, the other two hypercars - the Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 - had also turned up. Time to find out if Jeremy will become Jennifer, we thought. Nope. Clarkson explained that Ferrari and McLaren were being very difficult, making it impossible to take the cars around the track to find out which is fastest.

It seems McLaren isn’t happy with being cast as one of the bad guys, after it tweeted that Top Gear was responsible for the cancellation of the track time.

Although McLaren didn’t explain the reason filming was cancelled, it seems the boys from Woking are trying to pin the blame on their friends in Maranello.

While this bickering is likely to continue for some time, the Porsche is just sitting quietly waiting for its moment to shine.
