It's an age-old question: What's better, a tuned car or a car that comes from the factory with a ton of power? That debate will never be settled, but the professional hoons at Autocar added fuel to the fire by lining up two very unlikely opponents.

In one corner, we have the McLaren 12C (remember, they dropped the MP4) sporting a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 with 616 horsepower.

In the other corner, you have the Fensport Toyota GT86 Turbo with 335 horsepower. Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe tests both the street legal and more powerful racing-only "R" version, and then has the latter square off against the McLaren.

The McLaren is quicker in a straight line, but the Toyota ends up much faster in the corners. I won't spoil the ending for you, but it's a fun matchup.

It's hard to tell, but this is a 1/18 scale model of a 2000GT.

Spotted this Supra a couple streets down from me. Talked to the owner and it turns out that only 3 hardtops in this color were ever brought into the country!

This widebody NSX sits just right.

Strangely meditative video on what it must be like to own a GTR.
