Agreed, GT2 all day, However, I would be a bit teary eyed at seeing the latter go, Im no big fan of a 458 by any means, But im rather fond of the Speciale.

But i think ill take a New Vanquish and wipe my tears.

I think that there were bad gears changes in Ferrari (at least it didnt sound like the best gear changes).

Anyway Ferrari did well. From 60 to about 220 km/h Gt2RS and 458S are practically equal. Above that Porsche can be faster as it has better 200-250 acceleration time.
