McLaren 650S goes from zero-100mph in 5.7 seconds. Whatever gear you are in this car powers along with faster shifts and the steering is heavy and precise. Carbon ceramic brakes stop as well as any road car. It is £195K for the coupé and £215K for the spider, but the performance you get more than justifies it. The roof can be lowered or raised on the move. The ride is really smooth in ‘normal’ and the suspension isn’t crashing, but when you put it into ‘track’, this car transforms into a race car!
Ferrari 488 GTB
This car is ridiculous. 0-124mph in 8.3 seconds. The Ferrari 488 GTB is agile and manic simultaneously; as well as being exceptionally responsive and controlled. The noise is phenomenal and you can control the power with pinpoint accuracy. The sheer excitement of the engine and the car is unparalleled and the car is perfectly balanced. This is a mid-engine V8 twin turbo supercar which will not fail to impress. At £200K, this sports car has 50 horsepower more than a Maclaren F1 and still invites you in to have a good time and will not leave you sweaty palmed.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is completely unflappable. Limited in production to a lucky 600 new owners. The rear wheel steering is really impressive and for a road car you will feel the adrenalin. This ‘street legal’ race car is great on the road as a daily driver – as well as on the race track. The seats are comfortable and the suspension even on the firm setting is fine. It is very sensitive and very connected with the driver. In a world where more and more cars are becoming disconnected from the person behind the wheel, the Porsche encapsulates the driving experience.
