On paperHowever, we want to discuss the on-paper data before moving on to the clip. The idea is that the difference between the two is not that big as low speeds, while it becomes more and more obvious as the velocity increases.
For instance, in the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint, we have a difference of 0.3 seconds. If we are to talk about the 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) run, the gap expands to a full second. And discussing the 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) stunt brings us a difference of under 7 seconds.
Interestingly enough, moving on to the 25-87 mph sprint (40-140 km/h), the two show an identical figure of 3.4 seconds. As for the 50 to 75 mph run (80-120 km/h), the conclusion is the same.
In the real worldMoving on to the real life experience in the footage below, the two drivers spend a couple of seconds working to match their speed and then they both weld those lightweight throttle pedals to the floor. We won't ruin the fun by telling you what exactly goes on in the video, but the few seconds of sprinting that follow are totally worth watching.
PS: the Porsche 911 behind the P1 was not happy about this charade.
