Secret Supercar Meet 2015 Is Where Hypercars and Supercars Race

Earlier this month, the UK went from being a country to being... a capital. Don’t rush to label this as a form of downsizing though, since Great Britain became the international capital of supercars.

Quite a large number of these hyper-powered machines got together on the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome for less than orthodox purposes, as part of the Vmax200 and the Secret Supercar Meet events.

The two-mile runway was wet throughout the hostilities, but this didn’t stop the drivers from going flat out. The pic above, which comes from Pure Power Photography, gives us a pretty good idea of the line-up. Oh and let's just say you want to see these beasts in motion - the video below is here to cater to your needs.

From the hybrid hypercar triumvirate, through senior machines such as the Ferrari F40 and the Jaguar XJ220, to classic metal like the original Gullwing, they were all there.

The Euro-flavored high-octane rides were obviously dominant, but a few machines from other parts of the world did accompany these, such as a Ford GT.

For those who haven’t been following us this month, we’ll bring you a few brief reminders of the sweetest moments that the British supercar and hypercar event has offered us.

We’ll have to start by saying the three hypercars didn’t race each others, mainly because the Prancing Horse doesn’t allow such competitions to take place. However, we did see a LaFerrari battling it out with a Bugatti Veyron. This was not the first time the two battled, so we were actually treated with a rematch.

The LaF subsequently pulled a series of donuts indoors, showing everybody how its intelligent rear diff handles the 950 hp (963 PS).

As for the Porsche 918 Spyder, this went head to head with a Lamborghini Huracan. Nevertheless, the German hypercar was low on electron juice, which made quite a difference, with the race being incredibly tight.

Did you just ask about the pair of white Koenigseggs in the pic? Yes, they did race each other. The occasion allowed us to talk about how these cars are individually tuned, with the result of the race being an unexpected one.

And yes, that ultra-rare MG XPower SV (the blue car you can see over the roof of the 918 Spyder) might have been jealous for not receiving all that much attention.

PS: caution - trying to count the horsepower of the distinguishable cars may make one dizzy.
