A few fast laps around the track proved that the Mercedes McLaren SLR is a tamed beast compared to the monstrous Ferrari FXX Evoluzione.
While the latter was developed specifically for the circuit and is not street legal, the SLR might just be the perfect ride to a fancy dinner and the vehicle of choice for a cruise around Monaco. With its 626PS (hp) and 780Nm (580lb-ft) 5.4-liter supercharged V8, it will make sure that whoever is behind the wheel will not be late to a business meeting either.
On the other side of the spectrum, the Ferrari FXX was produced in a mere 30 units and it helped launch the brand’s exclusive XX programme. The exotic remains one of the best-sounding cars out there and its 6.3-liter V12 naturally aspirated powertrain offers a concert that is only rivaled by F1 cars.
The 800PS (789hp) and 686Nm (506lb-ft) of torque sent to the rear wheels help the machine sprint to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.5 seconds and all the way up to 345km/h (214mph). It’s not exactly known how many examples were fitted with the $1.5 million Evoluzione package, which makes the car even rarer.
