Off the back of our Car Of The Year winner for 2018, as voted for by our readers and a few folks here at Enzari, the Fiat 124 Spider took a narrow but deserved victory for the car we have tested in 2018.
But what would you choose? Both carmakers make stunning cars and it is the more track focused 488 Pista and Huracan Performante that probably jump to the top of anyone’s Christmas wish list.
So just for fun, here’s a little run through of why these two supercars would make anyone’s Christmas…and you can tell us which would be your choice…
Ferrari 488 Pista
The successor to Ferrari’s V8-engined special series – the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale – which all received critical international acclaim for their performance and undiluted handling, the Ferrari 488 Pista marks a significant step forward both in terms of both sporty dynamics and for the level of technological carry-over from racing. The name (meaning ‘track’ in Italian) is, in fact, a direct homage to Ferrari’s unparalleled heritage in motor sports.
The 488 Pista was recently hailed as being Sports Car of the Year by some, thanks to its performance, lateral grip, its winning combination of engine and gearbox, and its electronic vehicle dynamics controls … On top of that, it also knows how to be very playful. The 488 Pista is a concentration of all the criteria sought by any lover of strong sensations on four wheels.”
Lamborghini Huracan Performante
Featuring Lamborghini’s patented active aerodynamics system and aero vectoring, the Lamborghini Huracán Performante and the open-top Spyder version represent a convergence of technologies to produce not only the best circuit times but the most dynamic and enjoyable road driving: the coupé’s V10 naturally-aspirated engine accelerates from 0-100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 325 km/h.
Jeremy Clarkson, recently called the Performante his Car of the Year “You get into it and you don’t know what it is that’s tingling the back of your head, but you think ‘this thing’s good’. There’s something about it: it’s not the speed, it’s not the looks. There’s only really been one car in the last twelve months where I’ve had that feeling, and that’s the Lamborghini Huracán Performante.”
