I'm not saying the Ferrari would necessarily have been faster, I'm just not sure their track run actually said anything useful.
    Blah blah blah...excuses excuses...the 488 was slower than the 'Vette!

    Lol, see, now we're at the level of the article
    I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me. It resembles my own mind except that you happen to be insane.

    I can't afford a 488, nevermind a 488 Pista, so the comparison is moot to me. Which is one of the reasons the Corvette won--it's a car approaching the performance of a super exotic for way less money. I can tell you for a fact that I would much prefer to own the Ferrari, because I think the 488 is gorgeous, even if I would rather have a clutch pedal. Like I said earlier, most people buy a sports car on looks/exclusivity more than performance. Very few people who buy these cars ever hit the track with them or need 755 HP to tool around back roads.
