Exclamation Ferrari Pista vs McLaren 720S Roll Racing & Performance Testing

The PISTA is gorgeous, stunning even. I still love the 720S. And once again... McLaren will NOT be denied! This is Brooks from DragTimes (great YouTube Channel) who flew over to Europe and met with the owner of both vehicles who agreed to complete instrument testing and various rolling races against both cars. Just wow...
I actually am always glad to see owners choosing Ferrari's in colors other than Red. And of particular note on the Pista, the rear Brakes are also ginormous!

Also of note, Ferrrai has NOT released official times and there are no current editorial reviews of stats. That makes this video of particular interest.



THOUGHTS....

5:35 terrible stonechipping on the pista

Interesting video that shows that turbo lag and different gearing shows that it can make cars faster in specific situations, even when just doing straight line driving. What's fast and not is more complicated than just a 0-60 time or 1/4mile time etc even on straight line autobahn driving, let alone on a track

Also interesting is that the pista is of course $100k or so more expensive, but, it does sound way better imho (but still not near that Novitec 812 N-LARGO)

Funny - I just saw the same roll race on my instagram feed. A tuned Pista vs. a 720s on the highways of Orange County, Mexico.
