Caitlin O'Connor Hosts "Stiffness" Test in McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and Viper ACR

Automotive engineers and their colleagues from the Marketing and PR department love to talk about the increase in torsional rigidity whenever a new car is launched, especially if we're dealing with a go-fast machine.

However, the internet has a bit of a different view on this - in the car-related side of the world wide web realm, stiffness has just as much importance, but let's just say that the testing methods are more... empirical.

You know, the kind of methods that involve girls in their bras getting shotgun rides in speed demons. And while most videos of this kind see the girls riding in tuned cars on the street, we have a more professional approach in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

Fulltime aficionado Salomondrin's latest clip brings us to the track, where actress and TV presenter Caitlin O'Connor is asked to host a stiffness test.

Oh, and let's not forget about the three velocity monsters being tested here. We're dealing with the McLaren P1, the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Dodge Viper ACR. Full disclosure: Salomondrin decided to buy a Viper ACR following one of his Youtube stunts, so he might not be all that objective when it comes to this comparo. Oh, and that 918 Spyder also comes from his garage, having been used to hunt Pokemons.

The last might not be in the same league with the first two, but it looks like Caitlin has a soft spot for the V10 machine. In fact, she calls the Viper the stiffest car of the three, while choosing the gas-electric McLaren as her favorite one.

Nevertheless, we're here for a different reason, namely to ask you to be the judge of this. Hit the "play" button below and decide which one of the three track-friendly animals is the best.

Sure, the video is 17:05 long, but we think there's no reason to deliver skipping-through instructions as we normally do when giving you clips that can grab more than a few minutes of your time.
