The Huracán and Continental GT3-R are on a collision course. A pair of Essex-white monsters, combined value way north of £400,000, hurtling towards each other at a rate of knots. It’s going to be messy.
At least it would be, were it not for the fact that this inevitable collision is not a literal one (though I’ll be honest, how we managed our high-speed, wing-mirror-to-wing-mirror tracking shots on this no-friction surface without an accident, I have no idea. I had my eyes shut for most of it). No, this is a metaphorical head-on, a coming together of two carmakers that once traced very different orbits.
