Taking down your heroes is always fun. It’s even more fun when you watch one of the automotive world’s current heroes, the Ferrari 458, just get pummeled at the drag strip by a dinky little Volkswagen diesel.

Say what you will about what must be one of the fastest Volkswagens in the world, but I am sure that Volkswagen is better than the Ferrari in every single way. From the tight suspension, to the exquisite interior materials, to the delicious-smelling smoke pouring out the back, to the sensuous styling.

Yeah, definitely. Every single way.
