Ferrari 458 Speciale around Elba
We take the harder, faster Fezza on a road trip round an idyllic Italian island. Yeah, tough day
Posted: 27 May 2014
These days, Elba is popular as a low-key tourist destination, a hippie hang-out an Italian friend tells me, but also a cycling haven, thanks to its vertiginous roads. Neither group is much in evidence in March, so the whole island is cloaked in that slightly eerie calm, common to out-of-season holiday hotspots. It also means that we should have some space to exercise the 458 Speciale, in the sort of environment that Ferrari's smallest car - in terms of physical size, but definitely not reputation - revels in.
