Top Gear’s supercar showdown
Five of this year’s finest supercars, plus some perfect roads and errant livestock. Sound like heaven? It’s certainly close

I love the strip lights that mirror the engine revs along the top of the wheel, and there's no arguing with the manettino or the engine start button. But the indicator switches are a literally on/off, hit-and-miss affair, and the wiper and light buttons - they're all on the wheel somewhere - are confusing. As is the sheer volume of stuff that's going on in the media and info pods either side of the steering column.
Still, the F430 was criticised for the paucity of interior content, so we shouldn't kick its replacement for having too much (though charging £540 for an iPod connection is a bit rich. Indeed, a trawl through the Ferrari options book could reduce a grown man to tears. In fact, prepare yourself for pain if you go options shopping for any of them).
