Tim Burton, better known as Shmee150 on YouTube, is known for managing to be at the right place at the right time with a video camera whenever something incredible involving supercars happens. On July 3, he added a video of another one of those moments, featuring two of Ferrari’s most potent engines going up against each other.
At Vmax Hypermax, a recent Vmax 200 event, Burton managed to capture footage of a Ferrari 458 Speciale racing a LaFerrari down an airstrip. A regular gathering of supercar owners, Vmax 200 events allow drivers to test out their car’s top limits in a safe and controlled environment, and the results are always a spectacular show.
Check out the spec comparison between Ferrari’s V8 and electric motor/V12 combo below, then watch the video and let us know if the results of this match up surprised you. When you’re done, find your own 458 Speciale or LaFerrari to test out at an event like this.[youtube id=”pTfsceQvHJU” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no”]

Editor’s Note: It seems as though some of the specs for the LaFerrari and 458 Speciale were mixed up, but the necessary revisions were made to correct these mistakes.
