Clarkson on the Ferrari 458
Jeremy takes the Ferrari to the very limits of grip... at 37mph

You have a rev counter in the middle and two television screens on either side. The one on the left tells you how fast your lap was and other not entirely relevant information while the one on the right is either the satnav screen... or a speedo. But not both at the same time. This can be a bit alarming when you are nearing a speed camera. But not for me obviously, because I never got past 40mph.
Much, I suspect, like the people who'll buy this car.
It could be then that I have produced the first truly relevant Ferrari road test in journalistic history. But I'm afraid my thirst to drive this car properly remains unquenched. Stay tuned.
