Ferrari, out of their immense pride, have decided to take us to the Mugello circuit in Italy’s Tuscan Hills to show off twin Four Five Eight (458) Italias in a short film by Alexander Paul. The aim of the film is to show off the 458’s driving dynamics as both a road car and a track car.
We have to say that we’re thoroughly impressed with the showcase. It did raise our eyebrows, however, to see Ferrari push these cars around the track so aggressively in what we believe to be road tires, based on the Italias’ responses to some pretty edgy driving maneuvers. Again, we did say they are prideful.
We can’t decide which we like better, Miss Italia in Red or Yellow. Actually, we’re fans of our featured Italia in Grigio Alloy that we spotted in New York a few weeks ago.
