What if we were looking at the comparison from the wrong angle, though? Top Gear's editor-in-chief Charlie Turner drove a 12C back to the UK from July's Alpine performance-car gathering, and wouldn't stop going on about how insanely good it was until we locked him in a small room and doused him with cold water. In the real world, a place we visit occasionally, the McLaren simply works. Well, it does now that the initial satnav and warning-light gremlins have been evicted.
