Ducati 1199 Panigale S VS the McLaren MP4-12C – It’s on
How will the Ducati 1199 Panigale S fare against one of the most favored supercars, the McLaren 12C? Will the McLaren’s sheer power and incredible braking power be too much for the Ducati? Or will the Panigale’s epic power to weight ratio rule the day?
This is actually a pretty cool showdown, an exotic Italian superbike versus some of the best of British supercar design. That’s right the Ducati 1199 Panigale S against the McLaren MP4-12C at a super technical road such Caldwell Park. This course plays into both of these vehicle’s strengths. The longer corners give the Ducati an advantage because it can maintain a higher speed than the Mclaren, whereas in the short, tight corners the car can brake later giving it an advantage. The results were quite shocking to me, the fact that the bike is only 2 seconds quicker than the Mclaren is impressive. If you throw an even better driver into the Mclaren that gap might be even smaller. Enjoy!
