Ferrari 458 Speciale around Elba
We take the harder, faster Fezza on a road trip round an idyllic Italian island. Yeah, tough day

Elba's roads are a mixed bag. The Speciale uses the latest version of Ferrari's magnetic dampers, for even faster response; it'll need them. We have no other aim than to go high, scything our way around the island's 3,340ft Mount Capanne, and the route mixes up some satisfyingly fast-flowing stuff with the sort of third-gear/second-gear hairpin ribbon that tests steering, brakes, chassis and passenger constitution to the limit.
