What happens if you pit the Porsche 911 Turbo (991) against a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4? How about versus a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe (W204)?

It’s like sitting on a barbershop chair and telling the barber to do whatever he wants with your hair. The most likely situation here is that the person might screw it up, but this story proves that risks might also pay off in a good way. Connor Hoyle, a Newcastle-based businessman, did just that. He left the keys of his £130,000-worth Mercedes-Benz G-Class to a guy, and told him to do what he wants with it. Fortunately, the guy whom Hoyle left the keys with was Ben Daye.
