If you want to buy a track-focused supercar, you get a lot of options. But few are quite so compelling as these: the 2022 Lamborghini Huracan STO and the new Porsche 911 GT3.

The Lamborghini Huracan STO is the latest and maybe greatest version of Lamborghini’s V10 supercar. These days its naturally aspirated 5.2-litre engine makes some 631bhp at a screaming 8000rpm, as well as 416lb ft. That’s enough to propel it from 0-62mph in 3.0sec and give it a top speed of 193mph. But those raw numbers are not what the STO is about, says Lamborghini. It says the rear-drive STO is about feel, emotion, and fun. Whoop. It costs £260,012.

You could argue similar things about the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3, and we do, but there’s no question that its performance is motorsport derived as well. It also has a naturally-aspirated engine, a 4.0-litre flat six, which revs to 9000rpm and makes peak power of 503bhp at 8400rpm. It gets 347lb ft, it’ll go from 0-62mph in 3.4sec, and it has a top speed of 198mph. Its price is £127,955.

But here we’re not taking lap times or performance figures. We want to know which is the better driver’s car – the two cars are together here at Anglesey circuit as part of Autocar’s Britain’s Best Driver’s Car 2021 feature, which you can find in the magazine, on digital subscription, or at autocar.co.uk. Join two of our journalists, James Disdale and Matt Prior, as they try the pair out, get deafened, scare each other a bit and decide which track supercar is more fun.
