The track comparison was more informative imo. However, the Mac looks like it was on slicks! I have freeze-framed a few times and they definitely look like slicks to me. Or I need a trip to Specsavers Grin

Crazy - genuinely crazy.

After the XJ220 and the McLaren F1 etc, with all the disappointment of later cars being dulled by technology. To be back to technology making for phenomenal power is just amazing

Nice post Thumb

I thought the question towards the end "Which car is the most desirable?" was potentially the more relevant. The win is doubt a nice feather for the macca's cap but I'm still not sure it could ever top my hypercar wish list... Question

It's topping mine.

I don't really like the look of the Fezza McFezza although it is growing on me.

Floor why is it that both McLaren and Ferrari are no where near the published times for 0-300kph Question of course they are not, none of their cars are. The published time for 0-300kph was way too optimistic in the first place - how much longer can they get away with selling like this?

the Porsche did what Porsche said it would do.

I just don't know how they get away with it - you could legally hand the car back on this - clearly with values as they are no one is going to do that but look at mclarens website and Ferrari - the figures are there - we are not talking one second difference - we are talking huge difference

Awesome. Some fantastic parts to that Harris piece. Restored my faith in supercars. I'd started to go off them a bit lately. There are so many video on You Tube these days full of this type of ugliness.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0xFFqXZ85o

When I was growing up there was no You Tube so super cars were like unicorns. Mystical, never seen in the real world, just magical otherworldly creations. There were no owners, just factory PR pictures or beautiful car magazine images (which were extremely rare i themselves. You might get a Lamborghini full on article once a year). Now, in certain places, they're everywhere and always existing for what seems like the sole purpose of obnoxious ostentatious arse-holeness.
No matter how brilliant the engineering minds behind them and the passion exerted on every component and design element, their real function gets reduced to city centre crudeness. Mainly because of the crass exhausts. Hair raising and profoundly emotive on a deserted road or a track. Stupid and offensive in cities. It's just ridiculous. And it doesn't have to be that way. They could just as easily be made quiet until you hit a hundred or something like that.
What's my vote on the three. For me it has to be the Ferrari. All three are basically for all intents and purposes even matched but the Porsche is a little bland and the F1 a bit Playstation. The Ferrari to my eyes and I've never seen one in real like looks just as purposeful and exotic as the other two but has a beauty and a serene class about the styling proportions and details.
But I'd swap my kids for any of the three.
