Ferrari Service San Francisco - Pagani Huayra vs Ferrari F12 on the Track - San Francisco Motorsports San Rafael
Two of the most desirable cars on the road lock horns at the Autodromo di Modena, just down the road from where they're each made.
German publication Sport Auto's test driver Chritian Gebhardt recently had the pleasure of driving both theFerrariF12 Berlinetta andPagani Huayraon the track, giving us a chance to see bothTop Gear's top supercar and hypercar of 2012 side by side for the first time. There's over a million dollars separating these Italian-built supercars, thanks largely toPagani's liberal use of carbon fiber and titanium, yet they share similar levels of performance, and equally beautiful, if not very different, body styles.
The Huayra runs an AMG-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, good for 700hpand 738 lb-ft of torque that translates to a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 230 mph. While Ferrari's flagship is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 with 729hpand 509 lb-ft of torque, it manages 0-60 in 3.1 secs and can reach 211 mph flat out.
