McLaren 650s or Ferrari 458 Speciale – Better Track Car?

So today you’re going shopping, money is no object of course, and you’re looking for a track worthy monster.  The latest offerings from McLaren and Ferrari must be on the top of your list, but, which would you choose?

Ferrari’s 458 Speciale is as track focused as they come, being Ferrari’s most high performance V8 sports car ever produced.  Its specific power output of 135 CV/L is a world record for a road-going naturally aspirated engine.

The McLaren 650s was made for the road but can tear of a track like no other.  Positioned above the 12C in McLaren’s line-up, it boasts some breathtaking performance numbers (650PS, 678Nm, 0-62mph in 3.0 secs, 207mph).

So, easy decision right?  Which would you choose for your track-day beast?  Take your poll below.  Leave us a comment if neither of these get the job done for you.
