Nice test! Thanks for posting.
The result is rather surprising - I would've expected the MP4-12C to be further up, especially considering that it has been very fast in a series of other tests. The SLS frankly doesn't really surprise me, being still more of a GT than a sports car (an improvement over its predecessor SLR though). I personally think that it was a little lame by them to not put the Corvette ZR1 in the test as well since it's very close to the Porsche GT2 RS in performance on various tracks. The Gallardo Superleggera would have likely been closer to the top due to its higher stiffness - and so would have been the Audi R8 GT through better tires and more powah.

the winner is not surprising me, Ferrari 458 Italia is the benchmark in this class. I agree with Val about the Mercedes SLS. This is an "overtuned" luxury coupe, armed with its 6,3 liters AMG engine.

I'm surprised for the Lamborghini, but what the test show, the RWD beat the rest of the class.
