Car magazines performance car of the year vid

What the title says. Jesus christ the lp560 is fast. I was also surprised that vantage was quicker than the M. But at the beginning of the vid the driver said he had a lot of experience with that car.

Nice videos, considering that the vantage cost like 50 grand more than the m3, it should of been quicker.

Had the surface been dry, The GT2, M3, and other RWD cars would have performed a lot better. The Lambo and GTR really had the AWD advantage helping them. I'm actually amazed they didn't test a Ferrari as that would have been a strong performer.

It'd be a good test just because the cars would be fun to watch, but the Ferrari would win by a large margin.

I think the GTR had the most impressive numbers there. It was the 3rd quickest car there and the only you could use every day and .01 difference between that and a LP560 and two hundred grand lol. Plus this guy never drove the GTR or the M3 right?
