Porsche 918 Spyder Vs Yamaha YZF-R1

This isn’t about who wins, it’s about the beauty of it all.


Michelin have just released this awesome video showcasing the abilities of their tires; it features a stunning Porsche 918 Spyder and a magnificent Yamaha YZF-R1 battling it out on the track. Ok, it’s not really a race but when it comes to the ol’ four wheel versus two wheel battle, there is no such thing as a fair fight. Just sit back and enjoy the show…

As my esteemed colleagues from the Gear Heads auto pages will agree: you can’t compare the ride experience from a motorcycle with that of a sports car. Although, I still like to throw in my favorite trump card: “price.”


What the video does have, though, is some incredibly shot scenes, some amazing close ups and slow motion moments that make us all realize the fun of the track.
