Earlier this month, it was Option Auto that did a Ducati 1198 vs Ferrari 458 Italia shootout, and now it's Motor Trend who've had a go with the two gorgeous Italian machines.

The Ducati, which has a kerb weight of 198 kilos, is fitted with an 1198cc L-twin that produces 170 horsepower. The Italian bike accelerates from zero to 160km/h in 5.1 seconds, does the quarter mile in 10 seconds flat and costs about $22,000. The Ferrari weighs 1,558 kilos, is fitted with a 4.5-litre V8 that produces 557 horsepower, accelerates from zero to 160km/h in 7.0 seconds, does the quarter mile in 11.1 seconds and costs about $230,000.

With machines as gorgeous as these, there can’t be a ‘loser’ in this shootout, but the video is pure entertainment.
