On the motorway, it all settles back into a cruise, but there's been a brief snap of anger from the 458 Spider, and I'm a little shocked by it. Lodged a tiny fishbone of doubt in the throat of confidence. I thought it might be... well... a bit less toothy. Two hours later and equanimity is restored, the Spider is quiet and refined company on a motorway, even roof down and speed up. Italy waves and sticks up its thumbs in appreciation - one man even going so far as to applaud our passing. And he wasn't being ironic, either. We go in search of twistier roads. And the model. Of course, the model.
