Ferrari Enzo + Mclaren F1 GTR Road Test - Fifth Gear

I did a search for this video but couldn't find it, so I apologise if it's a re-post.

Its a 10 minute video clip from Fifth Gear. They were given a Ferrari Enzo and Mclaren GTR for a day by Chris Palmer (whoever he is).

Worth the watch.

And you thought you could own a Ferrari.....

Boy, those cars are expensive.

That was a nice review. However, something about Tiff is annoying. His voice is so weird. But still, a nice review anyway.

The McLaren in my perspective lost the comparo. The Enzo is so much more liveable on a daily basis, but it is the far superior road car.

By the way, isn't Gordon Murray working on the Caparo or another project? So shouldn't that be the replacement for the McLaren?

i stumbled on to this video a while back. its one of my favourites. Tiff lacks the charisma that Jeremy Clarkson has.

But there's one major difference, Tiff can actually drive well.

Chris Palmer posts on AutomotiveForums under the moniker of Mr. Bridger. He's owned a host of brilliant cars from the McLaren F1 roadcar #007 to the yellow Jaguar XJ220 TWR S.

If I'm not mistaken that's Jonathan Palmer, ex-F1 driver.

Correct. Also owner of Brands Hatch?? Might have just made that one up. He flew in, in his helicopter at the last Totalkitcar Live! event to have a go in some of the cars, that was a sight to behold.

Agreed, I must have watched it 20 times now. Both cars sound sooo good when they start up...

I also agree about Tiff being not as charismatic as Clarkson is. Tiff was very good in that video though.
