Video Track Demo: Ferrari 458 Speciale


Sorry about that (two Ferrari posts in a row)...

This is the best track demo/evaluation of the 458 I've seen (despite the seemingly inevitable drifting).  It gives a very good feel for what being behind the wheel is like.  The Presenter says the 458 "draws you in." He could have said the car's electronics say "I've got this" if you make a minor mistake near the limit.

Most of us are not Stig Quality drivers--not even close.  The 458 delivers from the most important vantage point: the driver's seat.  If I could afford one, I guess I could put up with paddles.  ;-)

I watched with interest and emotion. I became jealous because I don't have a job like that. Could I call myself an auto journalist and fly to exotic places, get in line for a set of keys to a wundercar and thrash it about? Heck, I haven't even mustered up the courage to hang the much-more-affordable FocusST's tail out on a track yet. A Ferrari 458 Speciale? No way. I'll live life a bit more reserved, one bite at a time. And, that's OK. There's still fun to be had at my speed.
