TopGear magazine goes supersonic in the perfect playboy hypercar

My head snaps back against the rest, my lungs gently bow backwards to embrace my spine and I swear the hairs on my chest all line up. The Aperta spews itself up the road in a scrabbling, furious bellow, wheelspinning in first, second, third, fourth. It's fifth before the car hooks up. Fifth. In the dry. The car might well be capable of 62mph from rest in 3.6 seconds on a sticky drag strip, but try it on the road with the traction off, and I seriously think you'll struggle to find the grip in the face of the engine's delivery.
