McLaren 650S vs Ferrari 458 Italia Street Race

October 3rd, 2015

Check out this video of a McLaren 650S going up against a Ferrari 458 Italia from a dead stop using launch control as well as a 1st gear roll race.  The McLaren’s 641HP 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo just hammers the Ferrari and it’s 570HP 4.5L naturally aspirated V8.  We imagine that this is why Ferrari finally gave in and decided to go with a set of turbos for the Ferrari 488 GTB. Can the new Ferrari 488 GTB with it’s 661HP 3.9L V8 Twin Turbo compete with the McLaren 650S?  We hope to find out soon!
