That would be the McLaren Speedtail, which produces 1,070hp thanks to its petrol-electric setup. The Speedtail is certainly quick, with a top speed of 250mph, but it's not geared for efficiency, officially returning 18.1mpg. An honourable mention must go to the Koenigsegg Regera, which made 1,521hp thanks to its engine and trio of electric motors, although this is no longer in production.
The Speedtail has a higher top speed, but The 986hp Ferrari SF90 Stradale accelerates faster, taking just 2.5 seconds to go from 0-62mph - half a second quicker than the McLaren. If we're moving away from limited-run exotica, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid takes just 3.2 seconds to go from 0-62mph, and you can even get it as a sensible(!) estate if you go for the Sport Turismo version.
