Video: Fifth Gear McLaren MP4-12C vs Ferrari 458 Italia


As much as I like Top Gear, I have more respect for the opinions of the guys from Fifth Gear; they seem to be more honest about the cars and they actually provide useful information.  This post covers a short test done by the guys from Fifth Gear, comparing the McLaren MP4-12C and the Ferrari 458 Italia (which happens to be one our favorite cars, here at First Supercars).

Racing drivers/hosts Tiff Needell and Jason Plato thrashed the cars around the track, lucky guys.  Tiff’s job was to see which car was more fun and Jason’s job was to see which car is the fastest around the track.  We all know the result of the fun test, it has to be the Ferrari 458 Italia but which car is faster around the track?  Hit the jump to see the video and the results.

I've been writing about cars for the last 8 years, but I've loved everything with an engine since I was a kid. I'll take the sound of high revving naturally aspirated engine over music, any day! Favorite Car: Porsche Cayman GT4
