The Philippines is yet to have a car that can produce 1,000 horsepower. That’s the sad truth. Not even the recently-launched Pagani supercars could reach that amount of power and we highly doubt we could even get our hands on a Huayra. No matter how often we marvel at the news about hypercars from the international beat, we won’t, at least in the foreseeable future, be able to sit behind the wheel of four-digit-output cars within our lifetime.
So, what can we do? How can we satisfy our need for exhilarating power and unforgettable driving experience? Well, get two of the most powerful, non-supercar beasts available in the market today – and drive them both within a week. I’m pretty sure that what I experienced wasn’t as glorious as driving a hypercar; it may be even far, but I think it’s the closest I could get. Besides, I had the 460-hp Ford Mustang and the 565-hp Nissan GT-R. Who am I to complain, right?
