IN his first column this year, Jason Akermanis assesses the driving forces at each club.

THE Ferrari F430 is overrated. The Lamborghini Superleggera is not.

This might come as a surprise to many, given the prancing horse's reputation as the ultimate in luxury sport cars, but I speak from experience.

A couple of years ago I was involved in a super car club where I had the chance to drive both vehicles.

You can imagine the letdown when the Ferrari turned out to be twitchy, hard to get into and nowhere near powerful enough for the money it cost.

View Aker's list below. Have your say whether you agree or not.

The Lambo was lightning quick and handled like a go-kart with sticky new tyres all warmed up.

It was another example of how perception can be so different to reality. It's no different with footballers....................

He managed to get a full set of golf clubs into the passenger seat of the SLG too.

Also - it is fair to note that one tends to limit the optimum performance of an F430 while being on the phone and chatting to people in other cars while driving...
