We’d kill for a McLaren P1, Porsche 918, or LaFerrari. This guy owns all three

Few people in the world will ever get the chance to drive, much less own a McLaren P1, Porsche 918, or LaFerrari. Englishman Paul Bailey happens to have all three.

Having already possessed the keys to a brilliant Volcano Orange P1, Bailey set off to complete the holy trinity on January 24th with his wife Selena and news outlet Supercar Driver in tow.

First on the schedule was the Italian LaFerrari, which required a short drive to a lot in Nottingham, U.K. Of course, they made the voyage in the stunning P1, because why not. Bailey’s example was actually the first ever to be delivered in the U.K. and only the second globally.

Once the extravagant, Rosso Fiorano-clad Ferrari was signed off, the duo traveled to a Porsche dealership in Cambridge to complete the trio. 918 Spyder in tow, Bailey and his impressive entourage pranced down the motorway in a fashion that few others can do. As of this writing, each supercar is sold out.

Green with envy yet? Bailey, who calls himself a “serial supercar collector,” also owns a Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Enzo. Yeah, we kinda hate him too.

Supercar Driver also said that a 15-minute documentary detailing Bailey’s purchases is on the way, with a trailer debuting soon.

If you’re like us, you can’t get enough of these high-priced hybrid wonders. Top Gear Series 22 is currently underway, which will likely a full-length comparison video of all three cars. Top Gear Magazine released a short driving clip of the trio last week, which gives us another tasty look at the cars in action.

As for Mr. Bailey? You can learn more about him and his Volcano Orange P1 in the video below.

Tesla Model 3 vs. Hyundai Ioniq 6: Which electric sedan is best?
Front three quarter view of the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6.

There are finally some more electric sedan options. For years, the Tesla Model 3 was really the only good electric sedan that comes at a reasonable price -- until, Hyundai recently launched the Ioniq 6. The Ioniq 6 certainly takes some cues from the larger Ioniq 5, but is smaller and sleeker, with a design seemingly inspired by the Porsche 911.

But the Tesla Model 3 is still clearly an excellent option for those looking for an electric car, and who don't want a larger crossover. Which is better? Here's a look.
The exterior design of the Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Ioniq 6 is quite different. If you've seen a Tesla car before, then you'll immediately recognize the Model 3 -- it looks largely like a slightly different version of every other Tesla (except the Cybertruck).

Scout SUV Teaser

There's another electric SUV on the way, and this one comes with a familiar name. Volkswagen is reviving the classic Scout name for a new electric SUV that's billed as being an "RUV," or a rugged utility vehicle. And, it could well prove itself as the best electric SUV in its price range, when it does finally come out.

The new EV isn't due out for quite some time, but there's already a fair bit that we know about it. Curious to learn more? Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Scout SUV.
There's very little we actually know about the Scout SUV so far, but we do know a little about the eventual design. A few teasers for the upcoming vehicle have been released, showing sketches of both the SUV and the accompanying pickup truck, along with what's presumably the front of the SUV -- though in a dark environment, with little detail.

Volkswagen reinvented one of its most iconic models with the ID.Buzz, a modern, all-electric homage to the classic Microbus. But that's not the only fan favorite vehicle currently in the automaker's catalog.

Debuting at the 2023 Munich Auto Show, the Volkswagen ID.GTI concept aims to do for the Golf GTI hot hatchback — VW's signature performance car — what the ID.Buzz did for the Microbus. VW claims a production version has already been given the green light, although it won't say when it will appear.
