The December issue of Top Gear magazine is literally packed full of automotive objects of desire, and none more so than the awesome new Ferrari 458 Spider. Pre loaded with the pre requisite blonde, Tom Ford sets off to Italy to live the Italian petrol head dream. Elsewhere in the issue we spend the day with the Carabinieri Lotus S on the streets of Rome, take a flight with motor industry legend 'Maximum' Bob Lutz and take our first ride in the new Citroen DS5.

Enjoy the issue, on sale now!
