I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, being an automotive journalist has it’s privileges, well… most of the time anyway. The guys at Motor Trend Magazine have been reviewing cars since 1949 so while we here at Ridelust.com are jealous that they got to beat the hell out of the new Mercedes Benz SLS, the V10 Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo we have to say that they’ve definitely earned the right. What we have here are three of the best super cars in existence with three very different engine configurations. The Mercedes Benz SLS for example sports a traditional front engine rear drive layout, the Audi is mid-engine and the Porsche a rear mounted engine (I still don’t know how they get that too work). The Motor Trend guys not only got to drive these beauties but managed to get the California Highway Patrol to close down a really nice section of road so that the boys could go play.
Now I don’t know if I’d go so far as to call this video a comparison test in as much as I’d call it a symphony of engineering wonder. There is very little talking, loads of driving and most importantly the wonderful exhaust note of three of the best automobiles on the planet.
