    • Ultimate track shootout - 991.2 GT2 RS vs. McLaren Senna vs. Ferrari 488 Pista vs. Aventador SVJ

      Here are all the big boys in the track special world going at it at the same time, same place. You already know the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the Nurburgring champion and that the McLaren Senna recently set some blistering laptimes at the Magny-Cours GP circuit.


      This time around the cars are at Silverstone.

      To be fair, the GT2 RS is modified by Manthey Racing. Suspension work is mentioned but who knows if they tuned the motor as well.

      Additionally, when the Senna takes the track it begins to drizzle. That is pretty much how it goes with British comparisons.

      It didn't matter. The Senna blew everyone away:


      There you have it. Hopefully we see more comparisons on more tracks and with all stock cars so the playing field is level.

        Disappointed. Not a better comparison than the Magny Cours times unfortunately. They ran some sort of whack short track configuration, and never mentioned what that was or showed us a track map, so its tough to compare vs times that are already out there (for reference the track record at Silverstone is 1:25, so something is wrong here). And the Senna had McLarens test driver in the seat which counts for something. Fun watch but not meaningful.

        It's a bit more meaningful than you give it credit for considering they are all on the same configuration with the same driver.

        But you're right, it was some tight variant they did not show us.

        Do you really think the McLaren Factory Test Driver pushed the other non-McLaren cars as much as he did the Senna? Come on. Click here to enlarge

        The Porsche was modified so that evens things out a bit. I’d still like to see all these cars on a longer high-horsepower-type track though.

        Of course not. He is far more comfortable in that car.

        Do you think Randy Pobst pushed the Viper as hard as he could around Laguna Seca?

        The more data the better. I mean at least we got all four of these together for once with laptimes, right?
