LaFerrari vs Cyclist, a Close London Traffic Race

When it comes to the world's supercar capitals, these cities might accommodate similarly impressive go-fast machine populations, but when it comes to the traffic these supercars have to face, the situation can vary by a great amount from one location to the other.

For instance, while Dubai is overly generous in this regard, London finds itself at the opposite end of the traffic scale. As a result, a machine as quick as the LaFerrari won't get you round the city much more quickly than a bike, especially if we're talking about Central London, the place where many high-octane vehicle owners want to be seen.

We've brought along a video to exemplify this, with the clip showing a London pedal man chasing a Ferrari halo car through the British capital.

The LaF was dressed in white, almost as if there were a director behind the stunt, one who wanted the cyclist to easily be able to keep an eye on the gas-electric Prancing Horse.

With 950 hp (make that 963 PS if you prefer the metric system) on hand, the LaFerrari can't use its grunt, and while the bicycle lover might put plenty of effort into the stunt at times, it all seems to be worth it.

Interestingly, this isn't a cyclist who randomly came across a hypercar and decided to capture the whole ride on camera. Having chosen the richnwilliams username on YouTube, the man has been spotting supercars, and chasing them on his bikes, for seven years now.

In fact, as our hypercar-addicted readers might remember, we showed you another one of the man's adventures, which involved a Yellow LaFerrari, over one year ago.

This is quite a special approach in the world of car spotters, one that burns calories with a noble purpose, so we can only applaud it. If only the British weather wouldn't interfere with cycling...
