    well duhhh, do a roll race next time if you are comparing fwd to rwd with the same engine

    I would've thought the traction of the FWD with the weight on the drive wheels would've won the day. The 500 missed a shift, but the 124 bettered the advertised time of both cars. 6.67 better than 6.7 & 6.8. and the 7+ second 500 run demonstrates the driver's mistake.

    If they knew how physics works then they would understand that the RWD car has the advantage from a dig.

    Maybe top gear is utter rubbish and is never going to be good ever again with out James Clarkson and Hammond

    A display instead of a speedometer is so boring , I swear.

    This is why automatics are superior, they won't "mess up" a shift like a human. If either one of those guys would have had an auto with paddles, they'd have beaten the other hands down no matter what.

    This is a very interesting race. You should've done a second race so we could see which one is really faster.

    Hmm given that it was faster off the line run that a few times to avoid driver error and the 595 would win but I presume this was sponsored by the German marketeers of RWD that all Brit journalists love so the result is what they wanted. I also hope TTC was engaged. Standing starts of course are nonsense in the real world anyway

    It's obvious they did this race twice with a different spider or using someone elses footage because at 1:01 the Arial shot is of a white spider not a grey one. I've had both cars and the spider hands down is the better car

  • Still I love this little 595 'cuz it's "cute but can kick ass".

    This isn't Top Gear. As every fan knows, that show finished in 2015 when Clarkson, Hammond, May and Wilman left and created a new versions of their show. What is now broadcast on the Biased Broadcasting Company's TV channel is a poor shadow copycat show of the former. It isn't proper TG and everyone knows it. If you want to see Top Gear – watch The Grand Tour.

    Shame that Fiat won't make a real coupe like the old coupe 2liters. There's not enough power in those 1.4liters engines.

    Folks, I know it may upset some of you, and even one of the drivers admits it is his fault (which it wasnt) I say: That is the superiority of the RWD. On a jump start all the weight is on the back of the car, which lifts the front tires and presses the rear tires on the asphalt. That is why RWD cars have a small advantage in grip in those cases. With an AWD it is another story. An AWD can really grip with four tires, so it would have the advantage. However AWD loses its advantage as it adds more weight to a car. Also the aerodynamics help the 124 Spider in the race as well…
    A FWD car has an advantage in space. It is a more compact system, so the cabin and the boot is bigger. Designing a car is always a challenge and the engineers work hard to maximize the abilities of their design, so it gets bought by people. People decide what they want and then buy the best thing to suit their demands.
    I fell in love with the 124 Spider, and I am happy with it. 🙂 The 595 Competizione is a very nice car as well. My girlfriend will buy one next year. Cant wait to see them together. :)))

    Being owned by an Abarth, and a proper roadster, mg, the choice is practicality. One is for silly clown type tomfullery, the other, silly ER clown type tomfullery.

    1 race where there was obvious driver error in the 595. Watch Carwow and see how it should be done.
