|Porsche 918, LaFerrari, Mclaren P1 on Top Gear|
Back when Mr. Harris choked on his tortellini and threw his parmigiano out of the pram on Jalopnik, he neglected to mention Mclaren behaves in essentially the same manner when it comes to how their cars are tested vs their rivals.
All car manufactures do this to one degree or another but Ferrari AND McLaren seem to have taken this behaviour to a new a new level. Top Gear confirms in their latest episode.
Who would be fastest around Top Gear's track, the Porsche 918, the Mclaren P1 or the La Ferrari (it pisses me off every time I have to write that name, thanks Luca Montezuma!).
I agree it's wholly irrelevant but I, and I'm sure you, would love to see it right?
If anyone could actually make it happen it would be Top Gear but no, neither Ferrari nor McLaren would allow it. Porsche was fine with it as they have nothing to lose, not the fastest and they can claim they are close at a significant savings. Win and someone in Woking and Maranello is losing a job.
But Jezza's right, c'mon, group a pair. Take the cars to Le Castellet or some properly fast track and have at it already.
