Forget the three old chaps over at Top Gear, as it is clear now that our very own Chris Harris is the luckiest guy in the world. Here are two Ferraris, two Porsches, an Aston Martin, a BMW and a very special Renault to prove that.
There are no winners in Chris Harris' end of the year video, for which he and his friends went to Portugal for three days to burn as many tires as Pirelli's strict-looking technicians allowed them.
What's silent torque? Jump into a Porsche 918 Spyder, forget that it's heavier than the Moon and learn how fast a car can be even compared to a 740 horsepower Ferrari F12. Which in exchange is still better than Heidi Klum. Or pretty much anything.
Having said that, you could also buy a 911 GT3 for the fraction of its price, and enjoy one of the best engines in the world paired with such agility only four-wheel steering can provide. You'll still be slower around the track than the guy driving a 458 Speciale, but at least you'll know Ferrari won't be able to top that car, ever.
BMW on the other hand will make a better car than the current M3, but for now, that twin-turbo six-cylinder provides just as much fun as a lightened, limited-edition hatchback from Renault. Bloody French, they are really, really good at this...
As for the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and its crappy gearbox? Does that really matter when a car looks this good?
