    Ferrari 488 Spider vs. McLaren 720S drag and roll races

    You do not get to see many independent tests of the Ferrari 488 going up against the McLaren 720S. Why? Because Ferrari does not allow it. They know McLaren builds the higher performance car and McLaren kicking dirt in Ferrari's face is nothing new.

    It's taken place since McLaren launched the MP4-12C. Speaking of which, it seems even the MP4-12C is enough to take on the 488.

    The truth is the 720S is lighter with a more powerful motor. The carbon tub is more advanced. Ferrari has the name brand recognition but McLaren's technology and performance is quite simply superior.

    The Ferrari is blown away from a stop, roll, you name it. Even when it cheats and gets a jump the 720S easily runs it down.

    Ferrari better deliver with the hardcore 488 Pista or this competition is laughably one-sided.

    I'd take a Huracan Performante over both of them.

    Ferrari got fat while everyone was starving...now Ferrari itself has become the meal.

    i think its fair to say that at this point the only 720s races we need to see are 918, LaFerrari, P1, Ragera, and the likes of these cars. I don't think any stock car under 1 million dollars is even close. We have seen it destroy a ZR1, and a deamon already. We need some stock cars that are 1000hp+

    I think we have seen it beat the 918. It even gives the Chiron a good run.

    Well the 720s has gone as quick as 9.6x and as fast as 146. Thats right there with all the heavy hitters.
