Take Your Pick: White Ferrari 458 And McLaren 650S Pose With Brixton Wheels

People often criticize McLarens for lacking the passion and drama of their Italian rivals. However, if we were to choose between this white 650S and white Ferrari 458 Italia, we’d pick the Briton – but that’s just us.

Both these supercars were recently outfitted with Brixton forged wheels which, thanks to their black finishes, contrast the white paint while complementing the various exposed carbon fiber accents.

Take the McLaren, for example. Its front end is dominated by gloss carbon fiber on the front bumper, splitter, and air intake surrounds. Additionally, it features carbon side air vents and much of its rear, including the diffuser, are also made from the lightweight material. The addition of the Brixton M53 wheels, measuring 19×9 inch at the front and 20×11 inch at the rear, help to complete the package thanks to their satin and gloss black spokes.

Similarly, the Ferrari 458 Italia pictured looks a hell of a lot more aggressive with its new rims. Compared to the McLaren’s wheels, the 458’s feature a much more complex design and have a similar shape to those of the Lamborghini Egoista.

Will white paint and black wheels ever go out of fashion? We don’t think so.

    I usually like Mclarens but I’d take the 458 this time around. I’ve always liked the look and sound of that car. Too bad the cars are white and have black rims, two no nos for me.

    I’m torn between the both, but i would pick the 650S.

      I’d take the McLaren too. Ferrari isn’t doing anything new these days. And downsizing an engine and then adding turbos (i,e, 488) is very McLaren of them.

    Why compare Mc Laren with old Ferrari Model? Actually Ferrari produce 488, not 458 ….
    In every case I would pick the 458, because Mc Larens have a lot of reliability issues !

    The wheels on the Ferrari look tacky (to me). So, I’ll take the 650S thanks.
