Anyone who would pick a Mclaren will have some regret when they sell it for half of what they paid. The 675lt may be marginally faster but the 488 will hold its value and still be an amazing machine to drive.

In reality, the 675lt would compete with the 488 Speciale when it comes out as it will also be track focused and lighter. The car that the 488 GTB competes with is the 650s.

I think ALOT of people forget a few things, 1, How easy or less hard a car is to drive, You can have all those advantages, But if YOU cant make use of them, Then there almost pointless, Just think back to 2007, The GT-R, That had maore electronics then a space shuttle, But a good reason for its incredibly fast laps is because they were easily attainable, Literally an 80 yr old grandmother could put down a real fast laptime, Not too mention all you had to do was put your foot down to get insane acceleration numbers.

2: Track, Simply because its faster on 1 doesnt mean it will be on another, Theres long straightaways were certain cars will pull ahead, Then theres a bunch of corners where aero grip, Tyre grip, lightweight and brakes play more a part, Simply because a car is "Track" focused, Doesnt mean its not gonna get beat a competition, And dont think for one second the 488 didnt have laptimes in its goals or is any less focused, There both pretty much made for the same thing, Just slightly more on the 675LTs.

Not sure how a standard 488 could be faster on a 675 on track, the 675 has a clear advantage in weight, grip due to tires, aero, braking and acceleration. I have spoken with people whom own both and they believe the 675 to be a superior track toy. That is no way say the 488 is bad car but is simply different. Let's be honest it comes to the driver...

put it this way. there are only only 500 LTs but a lot more 650s. every time a car does a launch depends on a lot of factors and especially with RWD cars they will have huge variances. The more cars there are doing drag racing, the more likely an occasional one gets a huge result.

Motortrend has shown that trofeo Rs although theoretically could get a better launch than p zero corsas, but the corsas are much more consistantly fast, and on average are better.

Nice results, with 5ps less and 180kg more 488 does the same time 0 to 200, better in the first meters and only lose by a second with a cup 2 (near a second slower than Trofeo R for a minute on track). Mclaren is light but I think that 488 have better engine+gearbox.
