As anyone who’s watched an episode of the TV show or turned a few pages of the magazine will tell you, the folks over at TopGear have a penchant for absurdity. From converting a Reliant Robin into a space shuttle, to carting around half-rotten cow carcasses, to driving a homemade miniature car through a library, these loons eschew common sense like it’s a skin disease. Which is why the hybrid hypercars from Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren suit them perfectly.

Let me explain. These three machines represent the very finest of the automotive world, with extremes of every conceivable sense practically dripping from their carbon-composite body panels. They are hugely powerful, immensely quick, technologically advanced beyond comprehension, and breathtakingly good looking.

They are also completely unattainable, and utterly unusable. At around a million dollars per example, the vast majority of these cars will not see much road use, nor will they have every tenth wrung out of them on a track. These vehicles may be masterpieces of engineering and design. They may be heralds of petrol-powered potential. But they are also, in a word, absurd.

Which is exactly why everyone likes them so much.

At a minute and a half, this video showcases these ridiculously incredible speed machines howling their engines, sliding around, and generally being awesome. Sound good? Thought so.
