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

There's obviously no direct comparison with the Ferrari, even if there is some lineage. No, what really connects them is an absolute commitment to driving hedonism. Purity. The 458 Speciale, like it or not, is an end-of-an-era Ferrari, a car that a lot of very clever, extraordinarily passionate people have poured everything they know into. And you can tell, through your fingertips, your feet, your ears and your backside. Find the right corner, flick the left paddle down a gear, accelerate. Change up. Accelerate, brake, turn. Repeat.
It doesn't get any better than this. It just doesn't.
