Evo Magazine celebrates 25 years of F40 with twin-turbo V8 comparison test

McLaren MP4-12C vs Ferrari F40 supercar review test and pictures | evo

Interesting and entertaining read. Curious if any of the F40 owners on here have driven both cars, and if so whether your opinions / impressions match those presented in the article... please share.

Cheers and happy new year!

I am sorry but the idea behind this test is really silly. You could just as well compare a Porsche 991 with a Ferrari 246GT just because both have 6 cylinder engines.

Am I being very cynical when I think it was just an excuse to feature the MP4? Evo seem pretty biased when it comes to McLaren.

Didn't like the article, sorry.

Onno

I always love reading other people try and describe the sheer experience that is driving an F40!

Definitive supercar of its time, the McLaren? I do not think so. It is not a supercar, but I guess it does qualify as an exotic. Supercars are limited edition and not being cranked out like sausages.
