British publication Autocar joined forces with PistonHeads.com to answer a question no one seemed to be asking, which of the 4 was fastest in a straight line?

The results were surprising, somewhat. At first the RC-F won with a commanding gap back to the second place i8 followed closely by the Cayman, with the M4 languishing in the back. After accusations of jump starts they ran the test again.

The only constant from the 1st run to the 2nd is that the BMW simply cannot get its power down. You can build the best drivers car in the world but if it can't lay its power down then really you're not driving anywhere...

Enjoy!

Didn't expect the RC-F to fall to third. The M4 did make me laugh.
It's in a straight line so, I think this was expected. If they were lapping around a track the RC would come in last, it's a GT car, not a sports car...straight line is probably what it does best at but not the best among these.

I dont know, i8 would have trouble after a lap or two... I dont think its made to charge and deploy charge and deploy like performance hybrids are but quicks sure

I'm interested how the new Porsche EV will do when it is pitted against this lot. Right now its a concept, but if it becomes a production vehicle, will it measure up against the petrol cars and the EVS, like the i8?

Probably. Electric Vehicles are advancing in leaps and bounds. I can see them becoming competitive in the future especially from Porsche.

We already have hybrid hypercars and supercars to get a sense of what EV's will have to live up to and even exceed, best place to start looking,

The Mclaren P1! If it was all electric with the same performance then it will be the perfect super EV. Probably only going to happen in the very distant future but one can hope.

Safe to say that the P1's successor will be EV. McLaren seems to be one of those brands that like to stay ahead of the times rather than just keep up.
