See, the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/jaguar/f-type/">F-Type</a> had 380 horsepower and plenty of body fat to haul about. The Morgan, though, is nearly as powerful (367 ponies) and is <em>far</em> lighter, at around 2,200 pounds. The BMW, meanwhile, isn't quite the track star that the lightweight Triumph Street Triple R.<br /><br />You'll need to check out the video to see whether two wheels or four wheels will prevail.
