#PSLReview#FordGT This car is totally underrated.
In photos it’s fine, in real life though it’s stunning. How wide it is, the aerodynamic design, the air extractors inside the brake lights, every angle of the car is engineered to be as fast as possible.
And it is. Incredibly fast on the road. Haven’t tracked it yet but it is unbelievable how easily it can go fast on mountain roads.
From the first minutes driving it you feel like you have been driving it forever. It’s so reactive and when you turn in its already time to realign the wheel as you are already exiting the turn.
The power is very progressive, you don’t notice any turbo lag.
Braking hard, I’ve never felt the ABS, never! On mountain tarmac and those speed with semislicks it’s normal for the ABS to kick in, this doesn’t. No weight transfer at all! The more you push, the more it grips and sticks to the line. Suspensions? It doesn’t roll at all, and they don’t feel stiff, it’s very comfortable, but the car doesn’t move from where you want it to go. Never touched the underneath and never jumped from a lane to the other on the bumps. It was so wow that after the first serious drive I had to go back home, get the 991 GT2RS and drive it on the same roads. Well, my beloved Porsche was sluggish, heavy, a GT2RS heavy!!! a lot of weight transfer very hard suspension and the ABS kicking in.
That day I was impressed, I spoke the whole evening about it, to everyone! To my 2 yo daughter as well!!!
I haven’t tracked it so I can’t say if the Ford is as fast as on mountain roads. I’ve read a few articles with lap times and the Ford is not as fast as the Porsche but on a mountain and narrow road I can say that the feeling, the sensations, the agility and the brakes, make the Ford win and it makes you never want to stop driving it... ..but you have to do it way too often to refuel!
#PSLReview Last summer Lamborghini almost forced me to buy the #HuracanPerformante so they wanted me to test drive it for a weekend.
I told them that I wasn’t going to buy it even if they lent it to me and that they were wasting their time.
After just few hours driving it I immediately called them to buy one!
This is the most agile car I have ever driven, more than anything else.
When you go into a bend you have to immediately straighten the steering wheel because she already did the turn. The sound is incredible, in Corsa the valves totally open so also while going out for dinner in traffic, you feel like you are driving a race car.
It’s incredibly fast, thanks to the torque and the gear ratio you always have power, thanks to the big amount of traction you can (almost) always push without spinning. It’s easy, maybe the easiest car I’ve driven, it’s like playing a videogame, accelerating, breaking, turning, it does everything under control.
But she is not perfect. Unfortunately.
On the road they are perfect.
On track I didn’t love them. I drove at Monza and Mugello and going fast they work well although when you start pushing close to the limit the car brakes without any problem but the pedal starts to react in a bad way, every time you brake hard you feel it responding in different ways. So, approaching a turn at 290km/h and seeing your wife’s face in the mirror reminding you that she is waiting for you at home with your lovely daughter, it’s not the best feeling to get a spongy brake pedal. (No there wasn’t air in the system).
Then after 30 laps, that could seem a lot but it isn’t compared to Porsche and Ferrari, you finish the front brake pads and you have to spend more or less 1k euro to replace them.
1k euro for Monza, 1k euro for Mugello then I decided to stop using it at the track.
My review is, very impressive car and with it Lamborghini started to play the game with Ferrari and Porsche.
But if you want to track it and compete against the GT2RS / GT3RS / 458 Speciale you know that after a few fast laps you will need to put your blinker on and let them pass. #Lamborghini#iamallergictotractioncontrol#powerslidelover
