It's an unlikely duel, but EVO's Chris Harris has pitted the Ferrari 458 Italia against the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in an odd comparison that's dripping with dichotomy. Why?

The GT3 RS is the ultimate embodiment of Porsche's arse-engined track machine, while the Ferrari is a high-tech tour de force that handily eclipses our feeble ideas of what a car is capable of. Naturally, this being an EVO review, it's all about what's the better driver's car. And per usual, it all depends on what you value most.

To Harris' mind, if lightening-quick shifts, techowizardry and ease of use are your thing, then the 458 is your bag, baby. But if you're looking for that visceral, connected, analog experience, then the GT3 RS is packing more thrills-per-ton than anything out of Italy.

The premise might be slightly weak, but it begs the question: Which one would you choose? Check out the video after the jump, vote in the poll below and justify your choice in the comments.
